How Serious is Roethlisberger's Injury?

Good Morning Football—October 18, 2016

Jordan D. Metzl, MD, primary care sports medicine physician at Hospital for Special Surgery, discusses the recent injury to Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on NFL.com's Good Morning Football.

"About 40% of the population have a torn meniscus of no consequence at all," said Dr. Metzl. "Just because it shows up on somebody's MRI doesn't mean it needs surgery right away."
