Ben Roethlisberger Throws to Teammates for First Time Since Surgery



Before his surgery on his throwing elbow last fall, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger promised that he wasn’t going to get a haircut or trim his beard until he could throw passes to his receivers again.

“I’m not going to shave or cut my hair until I can throw a football again,” Roethlisberger pledged. “Like throw it to one of my teammates.”

In a post on Twitter on Monday, Roethlisberger revealed that he had done both, posting clips of a training session with James Conner, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Ryan Switzer in addition to a trip to a barber shop to trim his grizzly beard.

The throwing session featuring Roethlisberger and his teammates was filmed at Quaker Valley High School in Leetsdale. The Steelers’ UPMC Rooney Sports Complex practice facility is slated to be open for Roethlisberger and other rehabilitating athletes on Monday.
