Steelers Ben Roethlisberger
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is ready for a comeback.

Ben Roethlisberger was limited to only two games last season as an elbow injury forced the Steelers to shut him down early. The details on his injury weren’t exactly clear, though the QB shared some info on his elbow, telling reporters that he tore three flexor tendons off the bone in his arm.

Big Ben added while the surgery he underwent wasn’t Tommy John, it was still a laborious one and he doesn’t believe any quarterback has ever come back from it.

The 38-year-old QB said he feels rejuvenated after an offseason of rehab.

“I feel strong and healthy and young, if you can feel young at this age,” Roethlisberger said (via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN).

Roethlisberger was 0-2 in the two games he played, though the Steelers went 8-6 without him, getting risk-averse play from Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges.
