Roethlisberger Will Train At Pittsburgh-Area High School While Serving Suspension

Whether it’s a four- or six-game suspension, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be in the city of Pittsburgh working out and preparing to return to action when his suspension is ultimately lifted. Big Ben of course is barred from participating in any of the Steelers’ practices during the suspension, meaning he’ll have to look elsewhere for practice partners while the Steelers embark on the first part of their 2010 regular season. His choice? George Whitfield Jr., a veteran QB coach who has worked with Roethlisberger before and will be flying in from California to do so once again.

In addition to bringing in the California-based Whitfield — the two have worked together during past offseasons — Roethlisberger said he will train with wide receivers that have been cut by NFL teams and want to stay in football shape.

“I am going to be doing a lot of drills, a lot of drops,” Roethlisberger said. “I will do everything humanly possible that I can do to stay as sharp as I can with the things I am allowed to do.”
