Goodell clears Roethlisberger to return next week

Posted by Michael David Smith on May 27, 2010 6:35 PM ET


NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has determined that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger can participate in team activities starting next week.

League spokesman Greg Aiello announced that Goodell made the decision based on reports and recommendations of medical experts who worked with Roethlisberger. Goodell ordered Roethlisberger to undergo a thorough evaluation, and Roethlisberger had been barred from taking part in team activities until the evaluation was complete.

Goodell will continue to monitor Roethlisberger's progress and plans to meet again with Roethlisberger at a later date.

Roethlisberger has been suspended for the first six games of the regular season for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. He will be permitted to participate in organized team activities, training camp and the preseason before serving his suspension at the start of the regular season.

Who takes snaps with the first team when OTA's resume next Tuesday? Ben? Byron? Dennis? Charlie?

good question...my guess is that Lefty has been running with the first team and will continue to do so since we need to prepare for Week 1.

John Clayton was just saying on ESPN that Ben's behavioral evaluation went well and that Ben's suspension being reduced to 4 games is almost a foregone conclusion once Goodell meets with Ben. :tt2

That's what I was thinking as well. I mean, if further "tests" or evaluation were recommended, then I would think Goodell would have Roethlisberger attend to that before rejoining the team. Other than the waiting, it seems this thing over.

I could see where Roethlisberger has already begun some type of mandatory counseling. That wouldn't be discussed on any level due to HIPAA laws, but I'm pretty sure that Ben wouldn't stop going, beat up his couselor, or try to force himself on one of the female staff.

I doubt we'll see Goodell announcing a reduction in the suspension until the 4 weeks are basically up. The reduction is still contingent on Ben's behavior. That is going to necessitate a "wait and see" approach, especially in how he handles himself throughout the suspension.

Well that is good news. I would probably split first team snaps 70% Lefty 30% Big Ben. Lefty needs to prepare for games 1-4 (hopefully just 1-4) but we can't let Ben just sit there and not get any work with the first string.

NFL reinstates Roethlisberger


http://www.steelers.com/assets/images/imported/PIT/photos/article/2009_Ben_Roethlisberger_BUF_0018.jpg


NFL STATEMENT ON STATUS OF BEN ROETHLISBERGER

Based on the reports and recommendations of our medical experts, Commissioner Goodell advised the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger today that he is cleared to return to team activities beginning next week. The commissioner will continue to monitor Roethlisberger’s progress as he begins the next phase of his recommended plan and will meet with Roethlisberger again at the appropriate time.

There has been no decision on any modification to the length of Roethlisberger’s suspension. In his April 21 disciplinary decision, Commissioner Goodell announced that Roethlisberger is suspended without pay for the first six games of the regular season. The commissioner said he would review Roethlisberger’s progress prior to the start of the regular season and consider whether to reduce the suspension to four games. Failure to cooperate and follow his plan could result in a longer suspension.

Statement from Steelers’ President, Art Rooney II:

“Commissioner Goodell informed us today that based on the information he received from the clinical evaluations, he has cleared Ben Roethlisberger to return to the Steelers’ facility to take part in both meetings and practices. We look forward to having Ben re-join his teammates on the practice field.”

I wouldnt be surprised if Tomlin messes with his head at OTA's and puts him in the Cabboose of the QB train at camp. He can make him play with the scrubs and camp bodies, as well as just making him watch. Give him that inner burner and itch, because the way i see it, Ben isnt a Steeler again till week 5 or 7 of the regular season.

I'm just glad he's back and be a vocal leader on and off the field leading up to the start of the season. Hopefully this is a new and improved Ben mentally and possibly physically, esp. when his regular season starts in week 5. Think of all the sacks he'll have avoided throughout the 1st 4 games... :HeadBanger

I would LOVE that move.

Make Ben work from the ground up. Of course, it would take about a day for him to jump over everyone else. But the point I think would be made. NO ONE is bigger that the organization, except for maybe Dan Rooney himself.

Steelers "look forward to having Ben re-join his teammates"

Posted by Michael David Smith on May 27, 2010 7:38 PM ET


Pittsburgh Steelers President Art Rooney II released a statement Thursday saying that the Steelers are ready to welcome quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back to the team, following NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to permit Roethlisberger to participate in team activities.

"Commissioner Goodell informed us today that based on the information he received from the clinical evaluations, he has cleared Ben Roethlisberger to return to the Steelers' facility to take part in both meetings and practices," Rooney said in the statement. "We look forward to having Ben re-join his teammates on the practice field."

The league's official statement on the matter made clear that the decision to allow Roethlisberger back on the practice field is the result of the thorough examination that the league made Roethlisberger submit to.

"Based on the reports and recommendations of our medical experts, Commissioner Goodell advised the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger today that he is cleared to return to team activities beginning next week," the league said in its statement. "The commissioner will continue to monitor Roethlisberger's progress as he begins the next phase of his recommended plan and will meet with Roethlisberger again at the appropriate time.

The league also said it's too early to say whether Roethlisberger's six-game suspension could be reduced to four games -- or perhaps lengthened to more than six games.

"There has been no decision on any modification to the length of Roethlisberger's suspension," the league's statement said. "In his April 21 disciplinary decision, Commissioner Goodell announced that Roethlisberger is suspended without pay for the first six games of the regular season. The commissioner said he would review Roethlisberger's progress prior to the start of the regular season and consider whether to reduce the suspension to four games. Failure to cooperate and follow his plan could result in a longer suspension."

Just a matter of time before everyone starts forgetting about this like Kobe. Err at least they won't care as much.

I don't know. I thin kthis stink is going to hang around this whole season.

If the Steelers put up a bunch of wins with Ben back, I think his off season antics and suspension get mentioned every week by the talking heads. They'll really pour it on if we make the playoffs and it'll get more focus if we make a deep run and there are less teams aroiund to talk about.

If we start losing consistenly then Ben's suspension will still be mentioned, though the references will fade as the team sinks out of the playoff race.

I predict it'll only go away for 2011 and we'll just have to put up with it this year. Fortunately (or unfortunately) ESPN and NFL network highlight shows/discussions have become almost unwatchable for me. I block out as much as possible and just look at the pretty pictures.

Roethlisberger to return Tuesday



http://www.transitpolicek9.com/images/ben-roethlisberger_n6mu.jpg


Ben Roethlisberger (Getty Images)
By Sports Xchange

Posted May 30, 2010



PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger has passed his first test. Next week, he'll be on the field with the Steelers at organized team activities.

After reviewing behavioral evaluations he reviewed following the April 21 suspension, commissioner Roger Goodell cleared Roethlisberger to practice. League spokesman Greg Aiello released a statement that read
"Commissioner Goodell has advised Steelers & Ben Roethlisberger that he is cleared to return to team activities next week."

In response to the news, Steelers president Art Rooney II released a statement through the team.

"Commissioner Goodell informed us today that based on the information he received from the clinical evaluations, he has cleared Ben Roethlisberger to return to the Steelers' facility to take part in both meetings and practices. We look forward to having Ben re-join his teammates on the practice field."

In what capacity Roethlisberger will return is not known. He hasn't participated in voluntary of mandatory team workouts, first to prevent creating a major distraction during the investigation into charges he sexually assaulted a college student in a Georgia nightclub, and thereafter at the order of Goodell.

The two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback still faces a six-game suspension. Goodell reserved the right to reduce that penalty to four games, but has not done so to date.

The Steelers first scheduled workout next week is Tuesday, June 1. There are three team workouts scheduled for the week before the team breaks until July 30, the official start date of training camp.

Roethlisberger is permitted to practice and play in preseason games before starting his suspension during the regular season. He's scheduled to return, if the six-game ban is upheld, for the Steelers-Saints game Oct. 31.

NOTES, QUOTES

* Rashard Mendenhall, benched in the third game last season because he did not practice well, will be the focus of the Steelers' so-called renewed commitment to the ground game in 2010.

Mendenhall recovered nicely from that benching last season. He was installed as the starter in the fourth game after a toe injury to Willie Parker and went on to become the seventh different back in franchise history to top 1,000 yards rushing. He had 1,108 yards with an average of 4.6 per carry.

With Parker gone, Mendenhall becomes the man. Mewelde Moore is the only other back on their roster who has had a carry in the NFL.

"I feel it was a pretty good start," Mendenhall said of his 2009 season, one year after his rookie campaign ended with 19 carries and a broken shoulder in the fourth game. "Right now I feel a lot better. Having that game experience, going out now I think everything's a lot more instinctive and comfortable."

The Steelers added Jonathan Dwyer to their backfield with a sixth-round draft pick, but have done little else to beef up their running game that team president Art Rooney said needs to improve in 2010. The Steelers ranked 19th in rushing in the NFL last season.

Among the other backs on their roster are Frank Summers, a rookie put on injured reserve last season with a bad back, and Isaac Redman, who spent most of his rookie season on the practice squad after he went undrafted.

Mendenhall would like to think the Steelers will run better in 2010 but he said it's too early to determine if that will happen and if there indeed will be a heavier emphasis on the run.

"It's tough to say right now because we're just trying to get back into things and I think our offense will form into shape as we get closer to camp. As a running back, you want the ball in your hands, you want to run the ball. That doesn't seem to be our focus. But whatever's called to do, however this offense is formed and shaped, we'll be willing to do that."

Like all backs, he would love to have a fullback slamming into the line to create some holes for him, something Bruce Arians does not prefer to use in his offense.

"As a running back you want a fullback," he said. "A fullback is another set of eyes in the backfield, they kind of read and feel through things that receivers and tight ends don't normally do, so as a running back you want that."

* The Steelers report to training camp in Latrobe, Pa., July 30 and will have their annual running test that day and start practice the next.

* Coach Mike Tomlin will replace Roethlisberger at the quarterback's summer youth football camp June 21-23 in the Pittsburgh area.

"At the request of Ben Roethlisberger, I have agreed to host this year's Youth Football Camp," Tomlin said. "Ben has expressed his hopes that this outstanding community program can continue despite his absence as he addresses issues regarding his personal life. The camp already has a significant number of kids signed up who are expecting a great experience, and both Ben and I want to make sure they are not disappointed."

* Nothing has changed in the quarterback rotation with six OTAs left: Byron Leftwich runs with the first team, Dennis Dixon the second and Charlie Batch the third.

"I haven't been told anything," Dixon said. "All I can do is control myself on my reps and try to make the most of it."

* The Steelers got a scare early in practice Wednesday when first-round draft pick Maurkice Pouncey crumpled in pain after 330-pound guard Trai Essex stepped on his left foot. Trainers looked at his toe and after several minutes, the guard-center returned to finish practice.

"Oh, man, 330 pounds on a toe!" Pouncey said. "I felt it a little bit at first, but I got back in there and couldn't let the guys down."

* SS Troy Polamalu continues to miss OTAs while training individually in California, as he did the previous two years.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I don't feel I'll be broken in half. Sometimes you have to use your instincts. If someone is coming full speed at you, you have to get down when need be." -- QB Dennis Dixon, on his running and get-down ability.

Rich Eisen: Roethlisberger has a lot of work to do to rebuild image

06.04
Posted By: Andrew Perloff


http://i49.tinypic.com/23s7wg0.jpg


The NFL Network's Rich Eisen joined the show to talk about Ben Roethlisberger and his strategy for rebuilding his image.

Eisen said Roethlisberger has a lot of work to do. "Right now his name with synonymous associated with at the very least wasted opportunity ... at the very worst, heinous criminal acts," Roethliserger said.

Eisen said the current situation is a pickle for Big Ben and the team. When Roethlisberger practices with the first team, he takes reps away from the guy who will have to start the first four games. And Roethlisberger can only do so much until he starts playing again.

"All he's gotta do is start winning games," Eisen said. "Unfortunately for him, he may not be able to do that until Week 7 of the regular season."
