If the Steelers want to extend their recent dominance over the Browns, they will have to do so with third string QB Charlie Batch-
“NFL.com’s Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that Charlie Batch will start at quarterback Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, according to a source with direct knowledge of the Steelers’ plans. Kinkhabwala confirmed ESPN’s Chris Mortensen’s report that backup quarterback Byron Leftwich sustained fractured ribs. “
The report would add that the Steelers have no plans to add to the roster this week, but that would seem nearly foolish. As has been said around Lake Erie today, Seneca Wallace is available.
