Roethlisberger knee surgery 'successful': NFL Steelers (AFP)

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger underwent surgery on his left knee on Monday but is not expected to face an extended period on the sidelines, head coach Mike Tomlin said. Roethlisberger suffered a torn meniscus during Sunday’s defeat to the Miami Dolphins, complaining during the game that he “felt something funny” in his knee after missing part of the second quarter. “Ben Roethlisberger underwent a successful outpatient arthroscopic surgery on his left knee this morning,” Tomlin said in a statement.
