Ben Roethlisberger has had arthroscopic knee surgery and will miss Sunday's game against the Packers. Charlie Batch is expected to get the start behind center against Green Bay. Michael David Smith is expected to get the old Charlie Batch Lions jersey out of the mothballs, just for old time's sake.
