How will Ben Roethlisberger look after his season-ending elbow injury?

Of course, whether or not the Steelers are contenders in 2020 relies on the health of Roethlisberger. Even though he sustained a serious injury last season, everyone is assuming that Roethlisberger will be playing at a high-level again next season.

Amid his absence last season, Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges combined for only 2,828 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions in 14 games. In light of that, even Roethlisberger at 80-percent would be better than what the Steelers had at quarterback in 2019.

There’s also the chance that Roethlisberger continues to decline in 2020, as he turned 38 years old in March. Regardless of what some believe, Roethlisberger is on the final stretch of his career. Despite the confidence of him returning, no one knows what Roethlisberger will look like after his significant elbow injury. Consequently, that places a huge question mark on Pittsburgh’s offensive unit in 2020.
