Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger says knee feels 'brand new' after surgery
I feel like I have already written this story, but what the heck ... I'll do it again.
Speaking from London to a local sports news agency, Roethlisberger gave another positive review on his right knee, which was surgically repaired close to a month ago.
"It feels great," Roethlisberger said. "It feels better than ever, like it's a brand-new knee, and I feel younger than ever. I feel good."
Specifically, Roethlisberger had his right knee scoped on June 5 to fix the meniscus. He will be fine from the start of training camp.
Roethlisberger may feel younger, but he is 31 years old and sure has taken plenty of shots in this league. Those hits and injuries might really start showing up in his play in a couple of years. But as far as the 2013 season is concerned, Roethlisberger is a high-end QB2.
