Default QB Status for the Browns

Byron Leftwich injury: Steelers QB could miss time
By Rodger Sherman on Nov 19, 11:56a

The Pittsburgh Steelers will likely work out free agent quarterbacks this week, as backup Byron Leftwich might not be able to play after suffering a rib injury while filling in for Ben Roethlisberger.

Jason La Canfora of CBS reports that the Steelers are worried that Leftwich's injuries will keep him from playing next Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, although he did return to the game after taking a big hit Sunday night. Leftwich had been forced into a starting role when Roethlsiberger also suffered a rib injury last week against the Kansas City Chiefs, and Roethlisberger's rare rib injury threatens his aorta and could likely keep him out for up to a month. Byron Leftwich is also injured for the Pittsburgh Steelers, meaning the squad could have to start Charlie Batch Sunday against the Cleveland Browns and will likely sign a quarterback off the free agent market. Leftwich was 18-for-39 with a pick in his first start since 2009.

A lot of conflicting reports on that. Quote from Leftwich...

But Leftwich didn't miss a snap during the game and dismissed all injury talk. "I'm OK," he said.

Just something I saw posted on FB just now...I know we'll know more later in the week.

Either way, I say going out and getting another backup QB is essential. I just don't feel that comfortable with Lefty and Batch as the only ones lol.

I feel better if Charlie gets the start against the Browns.

Who knows if Charlie will be any better, but IMO i know Charlie seems to run the OL well and he can manage the game better.

They should've signed McNabb to be Ben's back-up in the first place. They thought about, then went with Leftwich and Batch anyway. Cheaper, but you get what you pay for.

One thing you can ALWAYS bank on, Leftwitch and Batch getting hurt. Hate to say it, but it's true!

We only have about a million in cap space left, which is about what Batch cost us. So who would you pick that will take 1 mil a year to replace one of these guys?

I just saw on Twitter that Lamar Woodley is aking people what they think about signing Mcnabb. Not sure what to think. I know that Leftwich at 100% is about an average starter in this league so him at 50-75% is a NO-GO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please sign someone and Mcnabb might be a good answer.
