Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger injury update

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) said the recovery from surgery to repair a torn right knee meniscus is going well and that he could play this weekend if he had to.

"It feels great," Roethlisberger said. "I saw Doc [James] Bradley this morning. He was pleasantly surprised with the range of motion and where we're at with the swelling. It feels great. I've been off crutches for a couple days now and moving around pretty good. I think I could play Sunday if I had to. According to Doc, the surgery went really well, my knee is in great shape. They took care of the little problem. It had been bothering me a little bit last year and we just decided now is the time to take care of it."

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger lacks weapons in the passing game and should be viewed as a rather weak QB2 in 2013.
