Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is still healing from his injured elbow but he will be ready to go for the start of the 2020 season.

However, when he was on the sidelines this past Sunday for the Steelers game on Sunday night against the Buffalo Bills, fans could not get enough of the massive beard he was sporting.

So what’s going on with it and why hasn’t he shaved yet?

NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya spoke to Roethlisberger about his beard and he said he hasn’t been able to throw since undergoing elbow surgery in September.

Once he’s able to start throwing, the beard will be shaved off.
