Early in the season Ben Roethlisberger suffered a season ending injury to his throwing elbow.  The Steelers quarterback had surgery and is recovering.

There were rumors that the injury might be more than a season ending one for Big Ben.  Talk of retirement had surfaced in recent days.

Roethlisberger put an end to those talks with a tweet on Christmas to his fans and followers.  Big Ben is planning on coming back stronger and better than ever.
