Batch gets the call under center vs Tampa Bay Sunday

In a move that doesn’t come as much of a shock, Charlie Batch will get the start Sunday vs the Bucs. Batch is the only real healthy QB on the roster with Dennis Dixon out after surgery and Byron Leftwich just coming off a knee injury. Let’s hope with a real week of practice he will be a whole lot better than last week in Tennessee.

Charlie Batch will start at quarterback for the Steelers when they play in Tampa on Sunday, coach Mike Tomlin confirmed after practice today. Byron Leftwich returned to put in a full practice Wednesday for the first time since the MCL in his left knee was sprained Sept. 2, and is the only other available quarterback on the roster. Dennis Dixon underwent surgery this morning for a torn lateral meniscus but Tomlin provided no update on the condition of his left knee.
