Default Steelers QB Leftwich possibly out for season after breaking arm

Steelers QB Leftwich possibly out for season after breaking arm

Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich likely will miss the season after breaking his left arm during Saturday night's preseason game, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported.

Although Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wouldn't confirm it's a season-ending injury to Leftwich's non-throwing arm, he suggested it was serious.

"I don't have the time he is going to be out, but I am sure it will be an extended period of time," Tomlin said.

The injury occurred when Leftwich landed awkwardly after a scramble in the Steelers' 34-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. The ninth-year pro immediately ran to the sideline screaming in pain.

"It is disheartening," Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown said. "To see him in that type of pain really hurt me."

The Steelers also lost rookie tight end Miguel Chavis for the season after he tore a pectoral muscle.

Tomlin termed injuries to center Maurkice Pouncey (ankle), nose tackle Casey Hampton (shoulder) and Keenan Lewis (knee) as "minimal."

Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
