When the Pittsburgh Steelers players first heard about Ben Roethlisberger’s motorcycle accident six weeks ago, many feared the worst — worried more about him living, not about whether he would play football again.

“A lot of players thought he was on his deathbed,” Hines Ward said as the Steelers opened training camp Friday.

Instead, the Super Bowl-winning quarterback is expected to be right there with his teammates when they go through their annual running test Saturday. He’s a not-so-big Ben now, having lost some weight as his broken jaw heals, but he’s in much better shape than they possibly could have imagined.

During the June 12 accident near downtown Pittsburgh, Roethlisberger flew off his high-performance motorcycle and landed headfirst on a car windshield, resulting in numerous cuts and so much bleeding that he was told he easily could have bled to death at the scene.

“But you look at him, and it’s like nothing’s happened to him,” guard Kendall Simmons said. “I’m impressed with the way he looks and I’m excited about him going back out there and throwing the ball around a little bit.”

"Stupid thing?" What stupid thing? going for a ride on a nice day, and having some stupid chick pull out in front of him! He was'nt speeding! Stop harping on the helmet thing, Remember HE"S the victim here.Does'nt mean I can't wait to kick his *** on the Thurs. season opener but the guy did nothing wrong.

well actually, he was illegally operating a motorcycle and had lied to everyone about the conditions under which he rode his bike. Young dumb and full of cum... the good news is he survived his wreck without it seriously costing him anything, and he will fully recover...many don't.

I saw him running and throwing on ESPN. Crazy to think he is already back after that accident. Gotta tip the hat to him for that.
