‘BIG BEN’ OUT FOR 4-6 WEEKS

The Steelers received brutal news today, learning that Ben Roethlisberger will likely miss at least four weeks after surgery on his knee.

‘Big Ben’ suffered the injury late in the first half against Miami, suffering a torn meniscus in his left leg. Steelers officials initially slated him for a likely return in two weeks, but doctors confirmed otherwise.

The Steelers have a tough road ahead without Roethlisberger, facing the Patriots, a BYE, and then Baltimore and the Cowboys before getting the Browns.

The attention now turns to backup Landry Jones, who has just a 76 career passer rating. The offense stagnated without their No.1 QB last season, and could see the same result without him this year.
