The Pittsburgh Steelers could be down to their third string quarterback when they face the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. With starter Ben Roethlisberger already out, Byron Leftwich went down with two fractured ribs in their Sunday night game against the Baltimore Ravens. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Leftwich is unlikely to start the Steelers Week 12 game against the Browns.
So who's the Steelers third quarterback? None other than 37-year old Charlie Batch. The Steelers are a much better team than the Browns, but even they'll be greatly tested with their third string quarterback.
It was previously reported that the Steelers will be looking for quarterback help on the free agent market this week. Batch may start the game but they will need someone behind him as the backup.
The Steelers face the Browns in Week 12 before another rematch with the Ravens looms.
