It’s hard to fathom the amount of injuries around the NFL, especially through the first three weeks this season. Another big one came Sunday when Rams safety Mark Barron sacked Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, hitting him just below his left knee. Luckily for the Steelers, it wasn’t an ACL injury, but a sprained MCL and a bone bruise. Reports have said he will miss four to six weeks and Michael Vick will take over.
Former 12-year NFL tight end and current Bucs pre and post game analyst on WDAE Anthony Becht joined us on the Brown and Scoop podcast on CBS Radio’s Play.it and iTunes and believes there is a chance Big Ben only misses two weeks. Becht missed just one game in his NFL career with the same MCL injury.
You can listen to the rest of the Brown and Scoop podcast below. Becht discusses the future of Joe Philbin, the Jets, Vick taking over, Winston’s future versus Mariota, and more. We talked about our Jahlil Beats interview going viral, sports stories we’re glad we didn’t go viral for from the weekend, give our picks for week 4, tell a couple stories, and an Israeli radio host joins us in the studio to sing the Sukkah song.
