Ben Roethlisberger: 2-3 week recovery period is best-case scenario

Ben Roethlisberger: 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.”
