How long will Ben Roethlisberger be out? How much time will he miss due to injury?

Steelers fans saw the 2015 season flash before their eyes Sunday in St. Louis and Ben Roethlisberger went down in a heap and was carted off the field.

Roethlisberger suffered a sprained MCL, which was not as bad as many initially feared (an ACL tear was rumored).

ESPN reported Monday that Roethlisberger will miss 4-6 weeks. The best case scenario for the Steelerswould be that Big Ben would return Nov. 1 against the Bengals. The six week timetable, which seems more likely, would have him return on Nov. 15 against the Browns. The Steelers have their bye the following week – weekend of Nov. 22 – so it’s a possibility that Pittsburgh could be ultra-conservative and have him sit out until their Nov. 29 game at the Seahawks.
