Roethlisberger suffered a concussion in practice on August 14

Summary

Forget the retirement talk, Ben Roethlisberger seems energized this offseason and wants to play a few more years for the Steelers. He's got great weapons around him with guys like RB Le'Veon Bell and WRs Antonio Brown plus JuJu Smith-Schuster to throw to once again in 2018. Roethlisberger will be working with his former quarterbacks coach as the team's new offensive coordinator. Randy Fichtner spent the last eight years developing a strong rapport with Roethlisberger, and he should craft a system that works to Big Ben's strengths. Roethlisberger could once again post a top-10 season at the position if he stays healthy, but right now he's getting drafted as a mid-range QB2 by fantasy owners. (June 4)

Our View: This shouldn't affect Roethlisberger's Week 1 availability. This is the fourth documented concussion of his career, but he has never missed significant time because of one. If he suffers another in the regular season, it could mean a multi-week absence.
