    Ben R should hang it up

    Unusual and very serious rib injury. He's had a fine career, tough as nails, but seems it is time to go.

    The rib will eventually heal. There's no need for him to retire, he just needs to stay away until the rib is completely healed and not think of playing when it starts to feel a little better.

    Looks like he's coming back. I read that he's been fitted with a special "flak jacket" as Vick was.

    I'm sure opposing defensive linemen will "respect the flak jacket."
