Leftwich says he’s moving around better

ESPN updates the situation with Steelers QB Byron Leftwich, who was limping around the locker room on Wednesday:

The Steelers’ preseason favorite to win the starting quarterback job entered the locker room Wednesday with a slight limp and a heavy brace. Still, Byron Leftwich was in good spirits after recently suffering a left medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury in the final preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. “The knee is a little sore, but it is what it is,” Leftwich said. “I’m feeling good … It’s moving better than I thought it would. I never hurt my knee before, so I didn’t know what to expect.” Leftwich thought he was fine when he initially suffered the injury. Then Leftwich tried to get up and said his knee didn’t feel right. He’s projected to be out two to four weeks but Leftwich didn’t provide a timetable and even playfully hinted he might be healthy enough to play Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. “It’s disappointing because I may miss this one. See how I left myself a chance?” Leftwich said laughing.
