(0:55)PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger knew something was seriously wrong with his right elbow the instant he let go of the football late in the second quarter against the Seattle Seahawks last year.Speaking for the first time since he suffered the season-ending injury in Week 2, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback said he dealt with the elbow pain "for years," but the feeling that radiated through his elbow after he threw a long pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster was different."On the drive in Seattle, just kind of that pain wasn't really going away," Roethlisberger said Tuesday morning. I'm not saying that it was every day that it bothered me, but to feel healthy, to feel more in shape, things like that -- obviously you can't turn back Father Time and make myself feel like I'm 21 and run all over the field, but I think you can go on the field even at an older age and feel really good."Roethlisberger also said he gained a new perspective of the Steelers' offense from watching on the sideline while wearing a headset -- something he hadn't done since he played wide receiver as a junior in high school."I was able to watch more because I could watch the big picture, and I was able to speak to more guys on the sideline and talk to them and communicate kind of what I saw and what did they see," he said.
