Steelers expect Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) to be ready for start of regular season

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) is expected to be ready for Week 1's regular season matchup.

What It Means:

According to head coach Mike Tomlin, the Steelers "have no hesitation" about Roethlisberger's return from his elbow injury. "This guy is the ultimate competitor. He dropped the gauntlet down," said Tomlin when asked about his quarterback's status. "He made the statement he's coming back."

Expect Big Ben to return to his starting role as long as he shows he's healthy.
