From Ben’s chat with the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette’s Ron Cook this weekend:

“It was a good report. I got to bypass the tennis ball throwing for a month and go right to the football. Still going to be about two & a half-three months until I get total clearance from the doctor but we are doing good!

“It felt amazing to throw. It was hard to hold the smile in. Two more throwing sessions while I’m out here in California, and then headed back to the ‘burgh.”
