Backup Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch suffered a broken collarbone during the first half of the Steelers preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, reports the Tribune-Review.
Its unknown how serious the injury is, although a collarbone break is among the more serious injuries a player can suffer. If Batch is to be lost for the year, that will leave the Steelers with two rookies, fifth round pick Dennis Dixon and undrafted rookie free agent Mike Potts behind Ben Roethlisberger.
Polling Suspended (Again)
Bloggers polling plugin officially SUCKS. For weeks now I've watch as vote tallies on Steelers free agency, draft needs, and the draft itself go up... and then down.
Thanks to all of those who voted, but I'm taking the poll on Jarvis Jones down because there are 80% fewer votes now than yesterday afternoon....
