As the world continues to reel from the tragic death of unarmed black man George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger joined many other athletes across multiple sports in issuing a statement.

“The cruelty and injustice must stop, racism must end, and love must find a way to prevail,” Ben Roethlisberger said on Sunday via his Twitter account. “We are all children of God, equal in His eyes, and must hold one another accountable to fair and just standards.”

Like in many other major cities across the country and the world, protests have broken out in response to the incident and Pittsburgh has been no exception. The city was even placed on a curfew from 8:30 p.m. Saturday until 6 a.m. Sunday. The curfew will be in effect during the same hours Sunday into Monday.

As for Roethlisberger, the Steelers QB has spent the offseason continuing to rehab from a right elbow injury that forced him to miss all but two games in 2019.

In the matches that played in, the 16-year NFL veteran completed only 56.5 percent of his passes for 351 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception while the Steelers would go winless during that short span.

The Steelers have yet to release a statement about Floyd's death as a team, but Roethlisberger's teammates — including Pittsburgh running back James Connor as well as retired Brett Kiesel and Tyrone Carter — have either released statements or been involved in protests
