After missing a majority of the 2019 campaign due to torn elbow ligaments, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has made an extraordinary comeback in 2020. At 38 years old, and with a laundry list of injuries accumulated over his career, Big Ben's return to the field raised questions. Could he still perform at an elite level? Would he be able to endure hits like he once did? Did he still have the motivation to compete?

After 13 weeks, the two-time Super Bowl champion has quieted many of the doubters, but there are still concerns about his health as the season progresses into the playoffs.
