Pittsburgh Steelers News

Ben Roethlisberger, To be ready for Week 1

Roethlisberger (elbow) expects to be healthy for Week 1 of the 2020 season, Ed Bouchette of The Athletic reports. "I was going to be ready to go for OTAs and the minicamps," Roethlisberger said Monday. "That was going to be the plan."

Analysis: Roethlisberger has displayed modest progress in his recovery from September surgery to reattach three ligaments in his throwing elbow, lofting passes in late February and throwing pain-free by the end of March. Along the way, there was an expectation he wouldn't do much during the offseason program and even be limited at the start of training camp. With the former happening virtually this year, Roethlisberger will turn his focus to being ready at the height of summer, though it remains to be seen if he'll get any run in the Steelers' Hall of Fame Game matchup with the Cowboys on Aug. 6 or during the preseason whatsoever.

Antonio Brown, Levied three charges

The state of Florida issued three formal charges to Brown stemming from January's alleged assault of a delivery truck driver, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: This begins what is expected to be a rather lengthy legal process. The NFL is expected to review the findings and provide their own discipline should Brown ultimately continue his NFL career.

Antonio Brown, Not wanted in Tampa

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said Brown wouldn't be a fit with the team, ESPN.com's Jenna Laine reports.

Analysis: Tom Brady reportedly had interest in bringing Brown to his next NFL stop, but Arians was quick to shut down the rumors, noting that he knows the wide receiver (from their time together in Pittsburgh) and doesn't think he'd be a good fit in the Bucs' locker room. It isn't even clear that Brown will be allowed to play in the NFL in 2020, as his recent track record of off-field problems includes a rape allegation, an alleged battery incident and an accusation of sexual misconduct, per Chris Cwik of Yahoo Sports. The 31-year-old wide receiver made one appearance for the Patriots in 2019.

Ben Roethlisberger, Throwing pain-free

Roethlisberger (elbow) indicated Friday that he's "throwing without pain for the first time in years," Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Per Kevin Patra of NFL.com, the QB also relayed that he's throwing about 40 passes per day from about 20 yards. With that in mind, Roethlisberger plans to gradually increase the volume and velocity of his throws, with an eye toward being ready for Week 1 on the 2020 NFL season.

Roosevelt Nix, Let go by Pittsburgh

The Steelers released Nix (knee) on Wednesday.

Analysis: Nix is recovering from a knee injury which caused him to spend all but three games of the 2019 season on IR. In his stead, the Steelers will rely on Derek Watt to handle fullback duties.
