Agent says Roethlisberger a "few weeks" from talking publicly

In an interview with the Pitttsburgh Tribune-Review, Ryan Tollner (one of Ben Roethlisberger's agents) said that Roethlisberger is a few weeks away from talking publicly about his motorcycle accident.

Tollner also said that "a few" helmet manufacturers have been in touch to see if Roethlisberger would be interested in promoting their product. And he didn't rule out the possibility that Big Ben might one day do public service announcements advocating the use of helmets. As we indicated in an earlier post, we hope that Ben takes things a step further and works towards getting the Pennsylvania helmet law reinstated.

Finally, Tollner admitted that he has received photographs from Roethlisberger that show the progression of his recovery. "If he were seen today or tomorrow, I don't think anybody would be too alarmed," Tollner said.
