Soldiers get less, and deal with more. The game is fine.

Roethlisberger said it is a dislocation of the first rib that could puncture his aorta and that it is the bigger concern of the two.

"That's the more scary part because I guess if it goes in the wrong direction it could puncture the aorta," Roethlisberger told a large group of media gathered around him in the Steelers locker room at their Southside training facility.

[...]

Roethlisberger said he's gotten only about four hours sleep the past two nights and had to sleep in a chair.

"Certain movements," he said, "are very painful."Roethlisberger said doctors told him the injury is so rare in athletes that the last one they knew about that had a similar injury was a rugby player in 1998.

Re: Somebody could die

Im surprised it hasn't already happened, actually.

It's one of the reasons they're compensated the way they are, though. Coal miners and skycraper builders can die in their profession too. They know what they're getting themselves into.

The NFL has done more than their due dilligence
