Byron Leftwich returned from his sprained MCL on Wednesday to a full practice, but he won’t return to the top of the Steelers depth chart.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced that Charlie Batch will get the call on Sunday against a revived Bucs defense. It’s a somewhat surprising choice if Leftwich is truly healthy.
Playing in relief of Dennis Dixon, Batch dropped back to pass 13 times. Those plays gained a total of 19 yards. You just don’t see that in the NFL too often.
Tomlin can only hope he doesn’t see it again.
