The NFL announced Thursday that commissioner Roger Goodell has decided to allow Ben Roethlisberger to return to team activities with the Steelers in time for next week's voluntary OTAs.

The Steelers are scheduled to hold OTAs from Tuesday, June 1 through Thursday, June 3. Roethlisberger will be allowed to fully participate.

Goodell's decision is based on the reports and recommendations of medical experts who have worked with Roethlisberger.

"Commissioner Goodell informed us today that based on the information he received from the clinical evaluations, he has cleared Ben Roethlisberger to return to the Steelers' facility to take part in both meetings and practices. We look forward to having Ben re-join his teammates on the practice field," Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a statement released by the team.
