Steelers Welcome Roethlisberger Back on Field
Ben Roethlisberger is now being seen practicing with the Pittsburgh Steelers, one week to the day since he learned he wouldn’t be charged for assault.
The Steelers started voluntary on-field practices Monday. Roethlisberger also participated in off-the-field conditioning work for several days last week.
The quarterback is presently awaiting a possible DA by the NFL, even though prosecutors in Georgia declined to bring charges after a college student accused him of sexual assault in March.
Team president Art Rooney II says the Steelers are ready to punish the quarterback, but declined to do so because such action could be contested by the players’ union. The Steelers say Roethlisberger is not expected to comment Monday.
