Ben Roethlisberger has been rehabbing his elbow since Week 2 of the 2019 NFL season. On Sunday, he received a gift from his dog that would help anyone with their rehab.
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback has been working hard to get back to his team for the upcoming season.
Ben Roethlisberger‘s elbow essentially gave up on him in a Week 2 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks and he was forced to miss the rest of the season.
The Steelers essentially had a revolving door in their quarterback room with Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges getting the majority of starts. Not great.
Ben Roethlisberger’s dog had seven puppies, and they’re awesome
The long time No. 7, however, had some brighter news on Sunday morning as his dog went into labor and had seven puppies. Yes, the same as his football number.
As you can see in the photos and tweet itself, Roethlisberger was as surprised as anyone else would be in the situation. The good news is that they’re not only color-coded but beyond adorable to look at and any Steelers fan would probably love to have one.
Even in 2020, some good news can come out . Hopefully, this is only the beginning of good news for Roethlisberger and Steelers fans alike.
Roethlisberger has shown he is almost back to full strength with a number of videos being released of him throwing the football as he did prior to the injury. And a good thing too, as the Steelers rolled in at an 8-8 record, one that probably could have been far better had Roethlisberger been able to play.
This season is a prime chance for them to return to the playoffs if Big Ben is ready to go Week 1.
If we are being honest with ourselves, Roethlisberger could have a mess on his hands with his adorable new puppies. Perhaps playing is at the back of his mind on this fine Sunday afternoon.
