Roethlisberger, Holmes visit Steelers' Practice Facility

Amazingly, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger briefly visited the Steelers' South Side headquarters earlier today. No word on what he was doing there, but I'm surprised he's already out-and-about. Aren't you? It's only been a little over a week since the accident.

Meanwhile, the team released the following statement from No. 1 pick Santonio Holmes on his being charged with domestic violence by assault on Monday in Columbus, Ohio:

"I understand that being a Pittsburgh Steeler carries along with it the demands for responsible behavior off the field. I want to apologize for the negative attention that my arrest on Monday has brought upon the Pittsburgh Steelers organization, especially in light of my previous arrest in May."

Holmes faces maximum sentences of six months in jail and $1,000 fines for the misdemeanor domestic violence by assault and assault charges, not to mention possible disciplinary action from the NFL.
