Tomlin Says Roethlisberger’s Velocity is “Excellent” Throwing the Football

After watching Ben Roethlisberger throw two days at Heinz Field, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is pleased with his quarterback’s progress following elbow surgery to repair three torn elbow tendons, Brooke Pryor of ESPN reports.

“I didn’t see anything that was alarming in any way,” Tomlin said on a Zoom call Thursday morning. “His velocity is excellent. Maybe his spiral could be a little tighter. I’ve seen it tighter, but nothing to alarm you in any way.”

“We’re going to continue to proceed and proceed appropriately with him in an effort to have him ready to go when we step into a stadium.”

Roethlisberger was scheduled to practice Monday and Tuesday before taking Wednesday off. The camp schedule echoes Roethlisberger’s offseason routine as he recovered from the September surgery to reattach the flexor tendons.

“I’m extremely comfortable with where he is in the process. It’s been great communication. from and through him and the medical professionals through his rehab process,” Tomlin said.
