Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will have arthroscopic surgery to repair damaged cartilage in his right knee and will miss Sunday's game in Green Bay and possibly the Nov. 13 home game against the Cleveland Browns.
However, Roethlisberger should be ready to return when the Steelers play in Baltimore Nov. 20, if not sooner. Charlie Batch, who has been elevated to the No. 2 position, will be the starting quarterback. The Steelers have called a news conference for this morning to discuss the injury. Roethlisberger was injured on the first series of Monday night's 20-19 victory against the Baltimore Ravens but remained in the game. He was diagnosed with a posterior capsule strain, which includes damage to ligaments.
