Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger underwent a surgical procedure on his knee on Wednesday.
Roethlisberger was feeling discomfort in his right knee, and had the surgery on Wednesday in order to be ready by training camp.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin addressed the matter in a statement that appeared on the team's website.
"Earlier today, Ben had minor surgery on his right knee that was the result of slight discomfort this offseason. We advised him to get the surgery done to ensure he will be completely healthy for the start of training camp. This surgery will have no long-term effects on his health," Tomlin said.
