Leftwich leaves game with injury

Steelers Byron Leftwich, who is expected to start while Ben Roethlisberger serves a likely four-game suspension, has left tonight's game against the Panthers after hurting his left knee.

He will not return after completing 2 of 4 passes for passes for 43 yards.

After completing an 18-yard pass to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders five minutes into the second quarter, Leftwich got up limping. He then knelt on one knee, prompting the Steelers to take him out of the game.

He has gone into the Steelers locker room though he walked there under his own power. Dennis Dixon replaced Leftwich and threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Sanders.

Charlie Batch replaced Dixon after the latter finished the drive that Leftwich had started.

Roethlisberger started the game tonight and went 4-for-6 for 39 yards.

Quarterback Byron Leftwich was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital for an MRI exam to determine the extent of a left knee injury he sustained during the Steelers' preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers.

If for some reason, Leftwich is out for the season, who would you want as a back up?

There are twitter reports coming out now (just a couple) that are saying it's an MCL tear for Leftwich...not sure how accurate they are. Hope it's not true.

Its ironic that his knee got taken out by a BACKUP. As I said earlier, Ben gets the reps with the 1st team and Byron with a patchwork line and now he is hurt. Now who do we start in week 1? NOT DIXON. GEEEEZ

Shouldn't we have a 3rd QB during the first 4 games?

Dixon
Batch
?

Is Jeff Garcia a viable option? There must be some team who will be cutting a decent QB in 2 days right?

That's not a bad idea...Garcia would be a good back up option.

are you kidding? ben got sacked 2 of the 1st three plays.

some people just dont learn. :doh:

If that's true they would almost have to bring in another backup as security.

Feel bad for byron. This may be a life-changing moment for Dixon.

Illiterate huh? You can't even read your own posts. You said nothing about camp. You said DRAFTED. One would think that someone with the ultimate knowledge of all things football like yourself would know whether the team drafted a high profile position like QB. Good attempt to back peddle but you are still wrong.

he currently sucks and is out of football. :coffee:

and as was stated, we didnt draft him.

dixon will be the starter, since NOBODY is going to come in and have the chemistry and knowledge of the playbook that he already has.

if by freak chance batch gets the start, dixon will finish out the final 50 minutes vs ATL and then start week 2.

garcia would be a fine back up but he is currently under contract with a UFL team (and as he stated on sirius 2 days ago, not sure how easy it would be for him to get out of said contract)

I think I stated "Although he wasnt drafted" therefore admitting the error. That error is quite a bit smaller than not even knowing who the guy was lol. YOU think I have ultimate knowledge of all things, your post is textual proof of that.

I stated that he wasnt drafted. Hence admitting the error. Batch starts. Garcia is a bum and thats why hes in the UFL. Players dont go there by choice, they go by force

Wow. You are ignorant. Show me where I said he wasn't on the team. You won't because I didn't. My words were we did not draft a QB last year.

Another poor attempt on your part to make an arguement. Failure must be an everyday part of your life.

Fact: The Pittsburgh Steelers did not draft a QB in the 2009 NFL draft.

Well look at that. You failed again.

You know your wrong and now you just trying to weasel your way out.

This is bad news for the Steelers. Good news for that big Dixon nut that got banned from here though.

I wonder if they're going to consider starting Batch at all. He's been a quality backup for years, I understand he's 35, but he's less likely to make the mistakes Dixon will, and it's only for 4 games. Plus Batch has to know the playbook better.
