Roethlisberger, who underwent surgery about eight months ago to repair his throwing elbow, previously pledged not to shave or cut his hair until he could throw a "legit NFL pass" to his teammates.
The Steelers' franchise quarterback posted a short video of the vow Monday on social media, followed by a quick highlight reel of throws to running back James Conner and wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Ryan Switzer on a high school football field. The video then cuts to a fresh-cut Roethlisberger in a barber's chair.
The 38-second video ends with a declaration from Smith-Schuster: "He's back."
"He's doing great thus far," Tomlin said. "He's in great physical condition. Rehabilitation in regards to the injury itself is going well. I hear nothing but positive reports from that standpoint. There have been no bumps in the road."
Roethlisberger suffered the season-ending elbow injury in Week 2 of last season. In two games in 2019, he completed 56.5 percent of his passes for 351 yards and an interception.
