If you watched the beating Steelers backup quarterback Byron Leftwich took in Sunday night’s loss to the Ravens, it wasn’t particularly surprising he ended up with a bum shoulder and two broken ribs (though, to be fair, the shoulder injury was self-inflicted after Leftwich stumbled in the end zone after a first-quarter touchdown).
Now it appears Pittsburgh will be down to quarterback No. 3 this week against the Browns, which means 37-year-old Charlie Batch will get the start. (We think he should’ve started against Baltimore; he’s 5-2 when coming off the bench for the Steelers.)
With Ben Roethlisberger and Leftwich out indefinitely, the Steelers are kicking the tires on Brian Hoyer and Mike Kafka. Turns out, outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley would also like to add a name to the list:
@LaMarrWoodley – So @JasonLaCanfora saying byron might be out. what would yall think if we got @donovanjmcnabb?
