Ladies and gentlemen, Ben Roethlisberger has gotten a haircut. 

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback released a hype video on Monday regarding the trim after announcing in September that he wouldn't be cutting his hair or beard until he could throw a pass to one of his teammates following season-ending surgery on his right elbow.

The beard is trimmed... ...you know what that means 👀 @_BigBen7 | @TeamJuJu | @JamesConner_ | @Switz https://t.co/YLTtCynK25

The passes have been thrown to JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Conner and Ryan Switzer. The hair has been cut. The 38-year-old's comeback is underway. 

It's good news for a Steelers franchise that just missed the postseason in consecutive years for only the third time this century.
