Big Ben Roethlisberger On The Shelf Till Training Camp



On Wednesday it was reported that Ben Roethlisberger underwent knee surgery to repair some issues in his right knee. Coach Mike Tomlin called it, “minor” and said, “This surgery will have no long-term effects on his health.”

It is the same surgery that repaired his left knee in 2005 and that knee has been clear of injury since so there is no reason to believe this time should be any different.

For Big Ben owners, this isn’t of big concern. He should be back when training camp opens up and had been with the team during all of the OTA’s. If anyone is hurt by this news, it would be rookie’s Le’Veon Bell and Markus Wheaton, both of whom are expected to have big impacts on the offense this season.

This injury will also help new backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski get more familiar with the team as the Steelers let long-time backup Charlie Batch go this past offseason.
