By the process of elimination, it appears fans will get their wish and Charlie Batch will start at quarterback Sunday vs Cleveland and it's not because of Byron Leftwich's subpar performance vs the Ravens Sunday night.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports Leftwich fractured two ribs in the Steelers 13-10 loss to Baltimore. It's expected Leftwich will be out a few weeks. Leftwich was 18-for-39 for 201 yards with three sacks, one interception and a 51.3 quarterback rating. His night was highlighted by a 31 yard touchdown run on the Steelers opening possession.
