Steelers coach Mike Tomlin talks about Ben Roethlisberger’s offseason

One of the biggest storylines around the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason has been Ben Roethlisberger’s health.

Roethlisberger has been progressively recovering from an injury that cost him nearly all of last season. Head coach Mike Tomlin has chimed on the situation as he said he’s “pleased” about the progress that the start quarterback has made, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

“He’s comfortable and pleased where he is. Some people who had the opportunity to work with him are impressed and pleased where he is. The medical experts are comfortable where he is and his readiness for 2020,” Tomlin said.

It has been a steady road to recovery for Roethlisberger. The veteran has worked his way toward being able to throw once again this offseason. His teammates have done nothing but rave about his rehab work while boasting that he’s throwing the football with power and velocity.

It’s still a long way from getting back onto the field, but Roethlisberger is making enough progress to believe he will be back in time for the start of the 2020 season. The Steelers are banking on him stepping in as the starter to lift their offense back in the right direction. The team struggled without him last year due to inconsistent play and injury.

There is still plenty of time until the 2020 campaign, in which Pittsburgh will continue to keep a close eye on his rehab work. If anything, these latest comments suggest that Roethlisberger is nearing closer to a full recovery.
