According to a report from ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be out for a minimum four weeks with a knee injury suffered against the St. Louis Rams Sunday.

Early reports indicated there was no break in the quarterback’s knee, but that he will get an MRI to check ligaments.

“He’s worth a full seven points in our eyes,” says John Lester of BookMaker.eu. “Micheal Vick is a low-grade replacement for Big Ben so that’s why he’s worth so much to the team. The offensive system the Steelers run greatly depends on Roethlisberger being healthy. It will stall if he’s out for a significant period of time.”

The Steelers face a short week as they host the Baltimore Ravens Thursday evening.
