Ben Roethlisberger's Private Coach Pronounces Him Ready

Ben Roethlisberger’s private coach, George Whitfield Jr., with whom Roethlisberger worked while he was suspended, pronounces the Steelers quarterback “ready to go”:

Whitfield said he was impressed with the quarterback’s work ethic and has no doubt he’ll be able to step in and perform at a high level.

“He was very much doing everything that was necessary to go out and compete on Sunday. So I know fitness wise, he’s there. He was always going 100 mph. He was very adamant in staying in that racehorse mentality,” Whitfield said. “You’re out here four weeks on your own and then you’re going to jump on a moving train, so for him, he understood clearly. Every day he came out there, he knew exactly where he had to be.”
