Roethlisberger undergoes emergency surgery; will miss opener

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will miss Thursday's opener against the Miami Dolphins and is listed as week-to-week after undergoing an emergency laparoscopic appendectomy this morning. Charlie Batch -- the only other quarterback on the Steelers' 53-man roster -- will start the game. Look for Pittsburgh to sign a veteran QB off the street, (and possibly activate rookie fifth-round draft choice Omar Jacobs from the practice squad).
