Ben Roethlisberger shaves beard, gets in workout with receivers

The beard is gone. Ben Roethlisberger shaved it once he felt ready to throw passes with his wide receivers.

Ben Roethlisberger getting a shave and hair cut

It would appear Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is feeling like his elbow injury is sufficiently recovered at this point. The quarterback posted video to Instagram showing a completely shaved and cleaned up Big Ben. He says he wanted to wait on shaving until he was ready to throw again with NFL receivers, and so, it would appear he is set.

The video features Roethlisberger on a plane discussing it, and then it cuts to video of him throwing to receivers. The video is set at Chuck Knox Stadium in Leetsdale, Pennsylvania deep on the outskirts of Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger is throwing while bearded up, and then the video cuts to him getting a hair cut.

We’ll have to wait and see how he looks in formal practice and then game action, so for the time being, my only question is where he got the hair cut. I don’t believe Pennsylvania has allowed barber shops to re-open. He lives in Pennsylvania, but he might have briefly flown over to his home state of Ohio because barber shops started to re-open their late last week.
