Steelers QB Leftwich Breaks ArmSteelers QB Leftwich Breaks Arm, The Steelers are set at quarterback, thanks to Ben Roethlisberger, but the identity of your backup is now in question.

Veteran Byron Leftwich suffered a broken left arm in Saturday’s 34-16 victory against the Falcons. He probably will be placed on injured reserve and miss the entire season, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

With Leftwich out of combat, the battle for the No. 2 job behind Roethlisberger will be between aging Charlie Batch and fourth-year man Dennis Dixon. The two had been fighting for the third quarterback position. Now is therefore likely that the roster.

Leftwich, to begin his ninth NFL season, had been a starter in the Jaguars, Falcons and Bucs. In 2003 first-round pick from Marshall played a game in Pittsburgh last season, his second season with the Steelers.
