ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting, via Adam Schefter, that Pittsbrugh Steelers QB Byron Leftwich has two broken ribs and is unlikely to play against the Cleveland Brownss. Leftwich was abused by the Ravens on Sunday night, suffering brutal hit after brutal hit.
With Ben Roethlisberger (ribs, shoulder) sidelined indefinitely, the Steelers are down to just one healthy QB in Charlie Batch. Look for them to work out street free agents this week, with Dennis Dixon a likely candidate.
Fantasy Impact: Even if healthy, Leftwich can't be counted on in fantasy. His vaunted cannon arm wasn't there and his accuracy was all over the place.
