Steelers Lose Second Quarterback-Leftwich Out

After losing Ben Roethlisberger to an injury last week, the Pittsburgh Steelers will now look to their third quarterback this weekend against Cleveland.

Charlie Batch, 37, will get the start for Pittsburgh after Byron Leftwich was ruled out because of a fractured rib suffered in a 13-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Batch hasn’t started a game in nearly two years.

Former New England quarterback Bryan Hoyer was signed by Pittsburgh to back up Batch.

Roethlisberger was called “doubtful” for this week by Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin.
