Steelers Dixon has tear in meniscus of knee

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

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.
