Last week the Steelers indicated that Ben Roethlisberger’s surgically repaired knee was bothering him.

Roethlisberger was a guest on NFL Total Access and claimed his knee feels great.

“It feels great,” Roethlisberger said, via NFL.com.  “I was excited to get back here. Took a big break after the surgery, took a couple weeks off, and I did that on purpose so I could have time to rest.”

I hope Big Ben is telling the truth, because the Steelers need him to stay healthy of they want to get back to the playoffs this season.
