Insider Only Steelers name Charlie Batch starter vs Rams

Saturday’s quarterback matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and St. Louis Rams will feature Charlie Batch vs Kellen Clemens.

Following today’s walk-through, the Steelers have named Batch the team’s starter at quarterback. After playing Monday night, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be on the sidelines after not practicing all week.
LaMarr Woodley, Emmanuel Sanders and Maurkice Pouncey are also not expected to play for the Steelers.
Jason Worilds will start at LOLB as James Harrison returns to the lineup.
The Steelers are currently 15.5 point favorites.
Pittsburgh, 10-4, has a lot to play for as the team can still lock up a first round bye, if they win out and win division, after the Houston Texans (10-5) lost to Indianapolis last night. The Texans loss was big for the Steelers when it comes to any hopes of earning a first round bye.
The Steelers though will need Baltimore to stumble at least one more time. The Ravens finish the season with two divisional games, against Cleveland this weekend and Cincinnati in week 17.
Updated: The Steelers this afternoon placed cornerback Curtis Brown on IR, and promoted RB John Clay
