Ben Roethlisberger Scolded By Governor Over Haircut During COVID-19

The Steelers chose to put out a video of Roethlisberger throwing a few passes to JuJu Smith-Schuster and other teammates which also showed a brief clip of Roethlisberger getting his hair did by a couple of people.

Ben Roethlisberger got his celebratory haircut and beard trim as a "personal favor", the barber's lawyer clarified in a statement released late Tuesday. Those establishments won't be allowed to reopen during the coronavirus pandemic until the given county reaches the "green" phase.

"I don't think any Pennsylvanian ought to take that chance".

"My concern is just a general concern and anybody who puts himself or herself into harm's way is something i think we ought to try to avoid", Wolf said in response to a question about Roethlisberger specifically.

Tom Wolf was not thrilled to see Ben Roethlisberger and his clean-cut look. "And when you go to something like a barbershop and you're not protected, I don't care who you are".

Many counties, including Allegheny, are in the "yellow" phase of reopening, which does not include barbershops and hair salons.


I, personally, understand the want for a haircut these days.

The throwing session was a major milestone for the quarterback who had pledged not to cut any locks until he could throw a "legit National Football League pass" to one of his teammates.

After two regular-season games in 2019, Roethlisberger underwent elbow surgery on September 24.

Both of the day's big events involving Roethlisberger were captured on video and shared by the Steelers on social media. Roethlisberger did not play the second half of the game.

Here's the problem. The barbershop Roethlisberger patronized is reportedly in Sewickley, Pa.
