It doesn’t appear that Big Ben is riding off into the sunset just yet.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have confirmed that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger underwent successful surgery on his injured right elbow. Despite his age and the questions surrounding his football future, he remains determined to keep playing and is aiming to return to the team next season.

“Once Ben returns to Pittsburgh, he immediately will begin working with the Steelers’ medical staff on his rehabilitation, and he is expected to make a full recovery and return to the field for the 2020 NFL season.” said Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten.

Roethlisberger sustained the season-ending injury during the team’s 28-26 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

This marks the first time in his 16-year career that he has failed to play at least 12 games in a single season.

To go along with six Pro Bowl selections and two Super Bowl titles, the 36-year old has compiled 4,651 pass completions, 56,545 passing yards, 382 touchdowns and 191 interceptions over a span of 218 career games.
