Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Throwing with teammates

Roethlisberger (elbow) is shown throwing passes to teammates James Conner (quadriceps) and JuJu Smith-Schuster in a video released by the Steelers on Monday.

Roethlisberger, who underwent right elbow surgery in September, opens the video stating that he won't cut his hair or shave until he's able to throw a "legit NFL pass" to his teammates. The clip ends with the veteran signal-caller receiving a cut and trim, indicating that his on-field work with Conner and Smith-Schuster represents being able to resume throwing without issues. The Steelers expect the 38-year-old to make a full recovery in time to kick off the 2020 campaign, and being able to resume making an on-field connection with his receivers is a significant step in the right direction.
