Steelers expect Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) to be ready for start of 2020 regular season
According to head coach Mike Tomlin, the Pittsburgh Steelers are confident quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) will be ready for Week 1's matchup against the New York Giants.
The Steelers remain optimistic about their quarterback's status for the regular season opener despite the lack of a regular off-season and in-person checkups on the veteran's recovering elbow. “As we sit here today, we are extremely confident in his readiness,” said Mike Tomlin when asked about Roethlisberger. “Obviously, it’s not without its angst. The guy is coming off a season-ending injury and surgery. But we like where we are. He’s throwing on a rehab schedule, and it’s going well, and we fully anticipate him being ready to go for that opener.”
If the veteran can stay on the field, Roethlisberger could be an intriguing streamer or late-round redraft option to invest in. In his last full season in 2018, the 38-year old recorded 452 completions for 5129 yards and 34 touchdowns.
