ESPN - [Full Article]

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been officially ruled out of Sunday's game against the New England Patriots, coach Mike Tomlin announced Tuesday.

Tomlin won't speculate when Roethlisberger will return. Backup Landry Jones will get all the practice reps this week.

Fantasy Impact: 

A source told ESPN that the Steelers are cautiously optimistic that Roethlisberger -- who had surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee Monday -- can play Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens. Pittsburgh is scheduled for a Week 8 bye.
