Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger undergoes surgery for torn meniscus


Ben Roethlisberger suffered an injury in Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Ben Roethlisberger had arthroscopic knee surgery on his left knee Monday morning, but the Pittsburgh Steelers are uncertain when their star quarterback will return.

Tomlin said that Roethlisberger will be out this week.

Tomlin's statement also said that the Steelers are "confident" that Roethlisberger does not have a long-term injury. When they return, they'll travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. Jones went 1-1 last season, though he was injured early in the one victory and Roethlisberger came on in relief.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: It's very likely that Antonio Brown, Sammie Coates and the other members of the Pittsburgh passing game will be unplayable at their current prices until Big Ben returns. Miami scored at least a field goal on six of its first eight possessions with the Steelers forcing one punt and blocking a field goal. Instead of it being Brady vs Roethlisberger, it will be Landry Jones vs Brady.

"That's when our doctor thinks it happened.he thinks he grabbed my right foot and my left leg kind of hyperextended", Roethlisberger said. If the mystifying 30-15 setback in Miami proved anything, it's that the Steelers hardly look like a legitimate threat in the AFC with so many contributors in sweatpants and sneakers instead of cleats. “Last year I performed pretty well in most of the situations so I feel like I have the confidence of the guys.”. Roethlisberger had surgery Monday t o trim his damaged meniscus, with hope he'll miss just one game and return after a Week 8 bye to face the Ravens on November 6.

"He's done a good job of getting up to speed in the short period of time that he's been here", Tomlin said.
