Roethlisberger likely out for Week 17

John - 12/28/2007, 1:21 AM - Curse news

Ben Roethlisberger made a bold late season push to get past Donovan McNabb and win the Chunky Soup Curse Senior League title for 2007.

Roethlisberger reportedly will not play Sunday, following a right ankle sprain discovered after the Steelers' victory over the St. Louis Rams, the AA farm team affiliate of the Green Bay Packers.

Team doctors examined Roethlisberger's ankle and concluded the sprain was due to muscle and ligament deterioration often associated with endorsing Campbell's Chunky Soup, the most terrifying food that doesn't move on its own (or does it?).
Said Dr. R. Elbert Kung, "Ben's ankle is in the middle stages of CSES, Chunky Soup Endorsers Syndrome. By this time next week, Ben will barely be able to walk."

Team officials have already contacted a minister to give Roethlisberger last rites.

Backup quarterback Charlie Batch seemed delighted. "I didn't endorse a soup that came with an evil curse. Sorry about his luck, but I got a team to lead into the playoffs, man."
