Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced Wednesday that Ben Roethlisberger has gone under the knife.
The team's starting quarterback underwent what Tomlin described as "minor surgery" on his right knee Wednesday as the result of slight discomfort during the offseason.
"We advised him to get the surgery done to ensure he will be completely healthy for the start of training camp," Tomlin said in a statement released by the team. "This surgery will have no long-term effects on his health."
That has the signposts of an arthroscopic procedure. No surgery is minor, but the Steelers sound confident that Roethlisberger will return in time to take the majority of snaps when camp launches in late July. We'll find out soon enough.
Big Ben said in late May that he was feeling "100 percent" on the heels of a painful shoulder and rib injury that sidelined him for three games last season. That obviously was not case.
