— Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will miss next Sunday’s game against the Patriots after suffering a meniscus tear in his left knee in Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins, according to multiple reports.

Roethlisberger played through the injury in the second half of Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins, missing only one series after suffering the injury when he was clipped on the leg while scrambling out of the pocket. He described his knee as “black and blue” after the game.  He reportedly will undergo surgery on Monday.

Roethlisberger is expected to return for Week 9. The Steelers have a Week 8 bye before facing the Ravens the following week.

— Cam Newton walked out of his postgame press conference on Sunday after his Panthers lost 41-38 to the Saints to fall to 1-5.

Newton gave short responses to questions, saying, “Next question” when a reporter asked him about his level of frustration.

He made his exit after 90 seconds and six questions.

Newton also walked out of his Super Bowl press conference earlier this year after his team’s loss and was widely criticized for it.

— Tragedy struck U.S. Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay on Sunday as his 15-year-old daughter was killed in a shooting in Kentucky. 

Trinity Gay, a rising track star, was struck in the neck by a stray bullet outside a restaurant in Lexington.

A suspect in the shooting, Dvonta Middlebrooks, 21, was found and arrested. Police say he fired multiple shots, but a motive is unclear.

Tyson Gay competed in the last three Olympics for the United States and holds the U.S. record for the 100-meter dash with a time of 9.69 seconds. He was disqualified from the London Olympics in 2012 after he tested positive for steroids. He was part of a team that won silver in the 4×100-meter relay in that Olympics.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I love being quarterback of this team.” — Tom Brady, after his first game at Gillette Stadium following his Deflategate suspension

THIS DAY IN SPORTS HISTORY: In the 2004 ALCS against the Yankees, David Ortiz hit a walk-off home run in the 12th inning of Game 4 to keep the Red Sox alive and start their unforgettable comeback from three games down.
