    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.

    "Thanks for printing the article on the Kentucky Labor Cabinet employees shoveling snow (“Office workers to shovel snow” Nov. 22). At first glance, I thought they were actually helping until I read the quote by Kentucky Association of State Employees President David Smith. He admits he is 42 and should not be shoveling snow, nor should cabinet employees because they have not been properly trained.

    You need to be ‘trained’ to shovel snow? Really?

    Trained to do what...scoop, dump, repeat? It is this mentality that explains what is wrong in Frankfort. Perhaps Smith wants the government to hire $30 per hour “snow shovel technicians” so he can take a cut of their
    union dues? - Letter to the Editor, Cincinnati Enquirer, 11/23/14

    Laus Deo.

    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."
