On Friday, Ben Roethlisberger sent a message to all his fans about staying at home during the coronavirus pandemic. The franchise quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers is currently spending his time inside with his family.
Roethlisberger’s message was shared by the team’s official Twitter account. The main goal of his message was to inspire those who can remain at home to make sure they don’t put others in harm’s way.
“If you have to (leave home), I hope that everyone practices good social distancing,” Roethlisberger said. “If you’re locked down in your house like we are, there are a lot of fun things that you can do.”
He also listed a few activities that his family is doing to pass the time, such as hitting golf balls in the back yard and playing charades.

It’s pretty impressive to see how long Roethlisberger’s beard is right now.
Fans are wondering if he’ll keep his beard until this quarantine stage comes to an end. If that’s the case, Roethlisberger might eventually have better facial hair than former teammate Brett Keisel.
