Ben Roethlisberger: 'My arm feels really good'

Ben Roethlisberger worked out on Monday and on Tuesday morning said "My arm feels really good. I threw a lot of balls yesterday.” When asked about waking up the next morning he said β€œit feels great.” He also disclosed that he tore three flexor tendons off the bone which is what required the elbow surgery.

Fantasy Impact:

At 38-years-old, Roethlisberger's return has been watched closely by fans and experts. There was a lot of uncertainty as to whether he would make a comeback at all after opting for elbow surgery last fall. After almost a year off though, Roethlisberger is saying that he is throwing pain-free and appears to have made a full recovery. In 2018 (Roethlisberger's last full season) he threw for a league-high 5,129 yards on a whopping 675 attempts (fourth most of all-time). He'll have some adjustments this season as he'll be without superstar Antonio Brown for the first time since 2010, but a developing corps of Juju Smith-Schuster, James Washington, and Diontae Johnson should benefit from having the gunslinger veteran back under center.
