Ben Roethlisberger suffered an elbow injury in Week 2 and missed the rest of the season after undergoing surgery. Despite concerns about his future in the NFL, the two-time Super Bowl winner appears to be making progress in his recovery.
Earlier this month, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin commented about Roethlisberger’s future with the team. He said he has “no hesitation” about the veteran quarterback’s playing status for the 2020 season.
Roethlisberger has been fairly durable over the course of his career in the Steel City. Although rehabbing from an injury at this stage in his career isn’t ideal, the 37-year-old gunslinger looks to be on track to play this fall.
On Saturday afternoon, the Steelers shared a video of Roethlisberger throwing around a football. The video might not show much, but it definitely gives fans in Pittsburgh something to be excited about.

The Steelers had to play musical chairs at quarterback this past season, as Delvin Hodges and Mason Rudolph both handled time under center.
If healthy, Ben Roethlisberger gives Pittsburgh the best chance of winning another Super Bowl. Back in 2018, he threw for 5,129 yards and 34 touchdowns.
Roethlisberger still has two years remaining on his contract with the Steelers.
We’ll see if Roethlisberger can make a full recovery and return to his old form.
