Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is doing fine and is expected to resume football activities soon, according to a source.

This should erase any concern for the time being as Roethlisberger has dealt with concussions in the past, which had raised a bit of a red flag concerning his health. However, he has shown the team’s medical staff that there is no reason for concern moving forward with his expected imminent return in the near future. This should take him out of action for this week’s preseason action.

The 36-year-old is still playing at a high level coming off yet another productive season. Last year received his sixth Pro Bowl selection after notching 4,251 passing yards. As well as that, 28 touchdown passes with a 64.2 completion rate and a 93.4 passer rating. This marked his fifth season with more than 4,000 passing yards and seventh with more than 25 passing touchdowns.

Pittsburgh is expecting him to maintain that same level of play for the 2018 season where they could have a chance to vie for the Super Bowl. Roethlisberger has a talented offense around him that could see him lead them to yet another strong regular season with the possibility a deep playoff run.
