Ben’s last radio show of the season earlier this week?

Recap from 93.7 The Fan

2-181Ben opened things up addressing the remarks made by a Denver Broncos cornerback that he was faking his shoulder injury.

“Unbelievable, right? It makes no sense, but it is what it is,” he said.

Ben went on to talk more about his shoulder injury, what it took for him to get out on the field and how it feels today.

“Doc did a good job, almost annoyingly so being in my ear every time I came off the field to check on me. You know, it’s just unfortunate. You know me, I’ll never use an injury as an excuse. You just got to play better all around football. Doc was right, it definitely was sore yesterday and today,” he said.

There have been many questions about what Ben will have to do this offseason to repair his injured shoulder and he shared what the doctor’s are telling him.

“It won’t need surgery,” Ben said. “I guess the ligaments will, you know, scar up and heal on their own. Obviously, we’ll be dealing with a little bit of pain and some limited movement here for a little bit, but supposedly it will heal on its own…The only thing he told me that possibly could need surgery is down the road sometime going in and just kind of cleaning out the arthritis and where that scarring is and things like that, so I don’t foresee any surgeries or anything on the shoulder any time soon.”
