It would appear Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is feeling like his elbow injury is sufficiently recovered at this point. The quarterback posted video to Instagram showing a completely shaved and cleaned up Big Ben. He says he wanted to wait on shaving until he was ready to throw again with NFL receivers, and so, it would appear he is set.
Feels good to be back out there with my guys! @TeamJuJu @JamesConner_ @Switz pic.twitter.com/hAlOwr7Ias— BigBen7.com (@_BigBen7) May 18, 2020
The video features Roethlisberger on a plane discussing it, and then it cuts to video of him throwing to receivers. The video is set at Chuck Knox Stadium in Leetsdale, Pennsylvania deep on the outskirts of Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger is throwing while bearded up, and then the video cuts to him getting a hair cut.
We’ll have to wait and see how he looks in formal practice and then game action, so for the time being, my only question is where he got the hair cut. I don’t believe Pennsylvania has allowed barber shops to re-open. He lives in Pennsylvania, but he might have briefly flown over to his home state of Ohio because barber shops started to re-open their late last week.
