Steelers' Roethlisberger will have surgery for torn meniscus

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a torn meniscus in his left knee and will have surgery Monday morning. There is no timetable for his return to the team.

Roethlisberger was injured midway through the second quarter of a 30-15 loss Sunday to the Miami Dolphins when he stepped out of a tackle try by defensive tackle Jordan Phillips and hyperextended the knee. His subsequent pass on the play was intercepted by safety Reshad Jones.

Roethlisberger immediately went to the locker room and missed the rest of the first half but returned to play the second half.
