PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Ben Roethlisberger may be out for longer than initially feared.

Earlier this week, Roethlisberger underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. He suffered a torn meniscus during Sunday’s loss to the Miami Dolphins.

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Roethlisberger could be out for 4 to 6 weeks as a result.

On Tuesday, the Steelers officially ruled him out of this Sunday’s matchup against the New England Patriots.
