Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced cornerback Cortez Allen had "minor" knee surgery, and will be out for "a couple of weeks."

The statement in its entirety:

Earlier today, Cortez had minor surgery on his right knee. We wanted him to get the surgery done now so he can begin rehabilitating immediately. This surgery was a minor procedure and will have no long-term effects on his return to the field. We look forward to his rehabilitation process and having him back on the field in a couple of weeks.
