With the team placing backup QB Charlie Batch on injured reserve, his career with the Steelers very well may be over. Despite being a great leader in the locker room, Batch’s contract expires at the end of the 2008 season, and with the OK to solid play of backups Byron Leftwich and rookie Dennis Dixon, the future for Batch is unclear at best. He had said he didn’t want to go on IR, but with Leftwich and Dixon playing well enough to lead the team to a 3-1 preseason record, the team had little choice.
