Tomlin in touch with Roethlisberger but still waiting

While the NFL waits on the results of evaluations of QB Ben Roethlisbergeras reported by Jason La Canfora last week — Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and the rest of the team wait as well.

As expected, Tomlin faced a series of questions on Roethlisberger when he met with reporters on the first day of organized team activities, which might be a daily exercise until some type of resolution is announced. Roethlisberger can’t participate in any official team activities — which include OTAs — until he is cleared by the league.

“I’m just going to wait for word from New York just like everyone else, and I’m not going to speculate until I get that word,” Tomlin said.

According to an earlier report by La Canfora, the Steelers expect Roethlisberger to be unavailable for the duration of May and quietly hope he could return for the next session of OTAs, scheduled for June 1-3. Still, there have been no indications that a decision from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will come that soon.

Tomlin said he has been talking to Roethlisberger “quite frequently” about “a myriad” of things.
