Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: 2-3 week recovery period is best-case scenario
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

While acknowledging that Roethlisberger -- who had surgery Monday to repair a torn meniscus -- could miss up to six weeks, Steelers president Art Rooney II noted Wednesday that the "best case" for the QB's return to action is two-to-three weeks, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "I think that two-to-three is what you can characterize as best-case, but that's what we're hoping for," Rooney relayed to NFL Network on Wednesday. "Two-to-six is probably a fair range that somebody can put on it."

Roethlisberger has already been ruled out this week and the Steelers are on bye in Week 8, which takes care of the first two weeks of his recovery. Beyond that, we'll consider the veteran QB week-to-week, with Landry Jones slated to start in his place in the meantime

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Could be out 4-to-6 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roethlisberger could be out 4-to-6 weeks after undergoing surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee, ESPN reports.

The Steelers have not released an official timetable for Roethlisberger's return, but the latest report has him missing at least a month, as opposed to just a couple weeks. Roethlisberger's status is in flux at the moment, but what it is certain is that he will not play in this week's matchup with the Patriots, and that Landry Jones will get the start in his place.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Officially ruled out for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Roethlisberger (knee) has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against New England, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Head coach Mike Tomlin made it official Tuesday, naming Landry Jones as the Week 7 starter. Roethlisberger had surgery Monday to trim his damaged meniscus, with hope he'll miss just one game and return after a Week 8 bye to face the Ravens on Nov. 6. Le'Veon Bell will likely be busy against New England, as the Steelers didn't have much luck throwing downfield when Jones was under center last season.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Undergoes knee surgery, no timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Tomlin said in a written statement Monday that Roethlisberger has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, Bob Labriola of the Steelers' official site reports. Although Roethlisberger is "expected to make a full recovery," Tomlin added "we do not know a specific timetable for when he will be able to return to the field."

Roethlisberger is assured of at least one absence (this Sunday against the Patriots) before the Steelers' Week 8 bye, a span in which he'll focus on rest and rehabilitation. Notoriously tough to keep off the field, there's hope that he'll be able to return in Week 9 for a divisional matchup at Baltimore, according to Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter, but Tomlin's comments Monday run counter to such optimism. In any case, Landry Jones will direct the offense for at least one game (and perhaps more) as long as Roethlisberger is sidelined.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Week 9 return anticipated
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Roethlisberger (knee) underwent surgery to repair a slight tear in his left meniscus Monday, but he is expected to return in Week 9 against the Ravens, the Observer-Reporter's Dale Lolley reports.

Roethlisberger has already been ruled out of this Sunday's top-heavy tussle against the Patriots, but with a bye week following that encounter, the signal-caller's absence is only anticipated to last one game. This expectation comes after Roethlisberger played through his injury during the second half of Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, before having the issue repaired with surgery Monday. Although Roethlisberger's status will still need to be monitored for updates prior to his forecasted Week 9 return, the Steelers and his fantasy owners should be relieved that he'll avoid more serious time out following Sunday's scare. With Roethlisberger sidelined this weekend, Landry Jones is slated to start at quarterback versus New England, with Zach Mettenberger serving as his backup.
