Team Not Confirming
Head coach Mike Tomlin indicated that Byron Leftwich has a knee sprain and the full extent of the injury won’t be known until the results of an MRI known.
The fear is that Leftwich has an MCL tear. Leftwich’s representatives at Pro Players Solutions are saying that the QB does indeed have an MCL tear.
“Our thoughts and concerns are with PPS client Byron Leftwich who tore his MCL this evening, ” the agency wrote via twitter just after 9:00 p.m.
However, the Steelers are saying further tests are being conducted and right now are not confirming what Leftwich’s representatives are saying.
As of 11:00 p.m., it was believed Leftwich was still undergoing tests. The consensus though inside the locker room is that the injury is significant.
