Pittsburgh Steelers veteran left guard Ramon Foster won't need surgery after suffering a right leg injury in practice on Saturday, but is expected to miss 4 to 5 weeks, according to multiple reports.

Foster, 32, was carted off the practice field Saturday when the leg was rolled on during a drill. He clutched his right knee while displaying he was in serious pain.

Foster reportedly suffered a bone bruise and hyperextended his knee, but avoided tearing any ligaments and the team is hopeful he'll be ready for Week 1.

Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin declined to provide an update after the practice, the team's first with pads during training camp.

Foster, who has made 115 career starts, would represent a major loss for the Steelers. B.J. Finney moved into the first-string role after Foster departed.

Foster is in the final year of a three-year, $9.6 million contract.
