Ben Roethlisberger still feeling pain in surgically repaired right knee

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had surgery on his right knee this off-season, and lingering effects from that surgery are still affecting him, per multiple reports.

The initial prognosis for the recovery from surgery for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was he'd be out a few weeks, and be healthy in time for training camp.

Training camp is here, and Roethlisberger is reportedly still experiencing some discomfort.

How much of a concern that is remains to be seen. The only activity the team has had so far is their conditioning test, which, judging by Marcus Gilbert having collapsed in a heap on the grass after completing his, seems to be something that would cause not just knee discomfort, but pain in the ankles, hamstrings, quads, lungs, chest and back.

It could all be par for the course, especially considering Roethlisberger said he felt fine while in London promoting the Steelers' Week 4 game at Wembley Stadium against the Vikings.

Something to monitor and something that probably was at least somewhat expected.
