And then there were two, apparently.
With the Steelers poised to pick from a trio of quarterbacks for Sunday’s game in Tampa against the surprisingly undefeated Buccaneers, one of them could be unavailable.
Per a league source, an MRI revealed that Dennis Dixon has a tear in the lateral meniscus of his left knee. Three years ago, he tore an ACL in the same knee.
The source says that Dixon will be getting a second opinion on Tuesday and determining the next steps on Wednesday.
That possibly leaves Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich as the options for Sunday, if Dixon can’t play.
UPDATE: Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that, if the second opinion confirms the initial diagnosis, Dixon will miss at least three weeks.
