I think all Steelers fans have been waiting for this moment.
This weekend, Big Ben was seen throwing a football again and all Steelers fans should rejoice. The Steelers posted video to their social media accounts of Ben lightly throwing a football this weekend as a part of his rehab program.
Okay, this is the first step in a long rehab process. I mean, the guy had elbow surgery, so there is still a LONG way to go. So honestly, we will see what happens, but this is definitely a positive sign and it’s clear the the big guy is happy about it.
After a doctors visit on Friday, Roethlisberger was originally set to just throw a tennis ball, but he ended up skipping straight to a football instead.
2.5 to 3 months? Sounds like Big Ben will be back in time for the season. But, I still believe that the Steelers should go out and get a solid veteran back up to compete with Mason Rudolph heading into the season. It never hurts to have an extra arm on the roster.
Just in case.
