On Monday, QB Ben Roethlisberger took to the golf course with a few of his teammates. On Tuesday, his teammates hit the practice field but Roethlisberger was nowhere to be seen.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Roethlisberger has yet to be given the OK from Commissioner Goodell to return to the practice field.
As part of his six-game suspension, the league required Roethlisberger to submit to a behavioral evaluation. He completed that within the last few weeks but the Commissioner has yet to allow him back on the field with his teammates.
It was reported last week that the league was expected to move at a "well and measured pace" in regards to Roethlisberger's reinstatement.
At this point, it's probably best that the Steelers give as many reps as possible to the other quarterbacks. Byron Leftwich is expected by many to be the starter in Roethlisberger's absence so it makes sense that he would see increased reps.
