November 16, 1994| Associated Press

Arizona Cardinal quarterback Steve Beuerlein had surgery Tuesday to repair torn cartilage in his left knee.

The Cardinals said Beuerlein is expected to return in two to three weeks. He was injured Sunday during the Cardinals' first offensive series against the New York Giants.

He continued to play and directed both second-half scoring drives in a 10-9 victory which left the Cardinals at 4-6.

Coach Buddy Ryan said Jay Schroeder would start Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
