This vague, one liner from Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin is all we have to go on regarding the recuperation of Ben Roethlisberger.

The Steelers QB, recovering from a sprained right shoulder, threw a few dozen passes on Wednesday in his first serious workout since suffering the injury on November 12th.

Via the AP:

”I’m getting there,” Roethlisberger said. ”I’ve got to talk to (tight end) Heath (Miller). He’s my barometer. He lets me know how close I am to 100 percent on velocity and stuff like that.”

”I thought it was a positive day for Ben,” Tomlin said. ”He threw the ball around both vertically and horizontally. I thought the ball had good velocity, particularly in a few instances. So, it was positive.”

If he’s good to go, and we’ve been jerked around regarding Ben’s status before, Roethlisberger will face a Chargers pass defense that has been destroyed in recent weeks, giving up 21 touchdowns and 241 yards per game in 12 contests. We’ll get a better sense of Roethlisberger’s status tomorrow so be sure to check back as the week progresses.
