Steelers President Rooney Looks Forward To Roethlisberger's Return

The NFL released a statement on Thursday evening announcing the return of Ben Roethlisberger.

Well, kind of the return. Roethlisberger can return to practices next week but his six-game suspension currently still stands.

Steelers President Art Rooney II released a statement in response to the league's statement:

"Commissioner Goodell informed us today that based on the information he received from the clinical evaluations, he has cleared Ben Roethlisberger to return to the Steelers' facility to take part in both meetings and practices," Rooney said in the statement. "We look forward to having Ben re-join his teammates on the practice field."
