Earlier today, Ben had minor surgery on his right knee that was the result of slight discomfort this offseason. We advised him to get the surgery done to ensure he will be completely healthy for the start of training camp. This surgery will have no long-term effects on his health.

Well, good reps for Jones...

That's what I take out of this exactly, reps for Jones and reps for Gradkowski, I'm fine with that, getting our back ups prepared is never a bad thing. I'd much rather Ben get 'issues' taken care of now and miss a little bit of time in the offseason than miss GAME time.

Probably nothing more than exploratory surgery to find the discomfort and fix it. I'm sure he'll be more than 100% once camp starts.

I agree guys. I look forward to seeing the other qbs get reps because they need it in this offense.
