Default Charlie Batch OUT for 6 weeks?

Schefter twitter


Steelers QB Charlie Batch, Big Ben's would-be replacement, needs wrist surgery and will be sidelined six weeks. Get ready, Dennis Dixon.

Steelers will have no comment till Mike Tomlin's presser on Tuesday. If it is Dennis Dixon as starter, he has thrown one only NFL pass.

Was he long enough to get hurt?lol. Man, its no funny, but did he get hurt in the shower or something?

When it rains it pours. I think batch is getting to old to be a #2. Every time he steps on the field he gets hurt in reg games.

I think its time for Chuck to hang em up. Osteoporosis can set in when you start getting old and your bones get brittle.

Oh well, now Dixon will be active on gameday and can finally be used in the "Wildcat" or as a KR/PR or WR as most on this board thought he should be doing.

Just heard the same thing on ESPN 1250 stan and guy's show....not good. Didn't tampa bay cut what's his name the backup QB we had last year. His name escapes me right now.

Looks like the Pen's injury bug has hit the Steelers. I like Charlie but he is as fragile as a 90 year-old women.

Didn't this happen the last two times he replaced Ben? Comes in for a few drives and then is knocked out for the rest of the season? Geez man.

This injury has shenanigans written all over it.

What I mean by that is I wonder if he wasn't injured prior to that game. It happens.....player hurt him self, knows he'll be cut if he lets the cat out of the bag. So just fake an injury and save your self millions $.

I never even saw Batch get hit. Maybe he did get hurt but it sure looks bad. What did he play? One series?
