Steelers are signing QB Brian Hoyer.

Fantasy Impact:

Ben Roethlisberger is doubtful and Byron Leftwich is out vs. Cleveland so Hoyer will back up starter Charlie Batch.

NFL.com's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports Charlie Batch will start at quarterback Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, according to a source with direct knowledge of the Steelers' plans. Kinkhabwala confirmed backup quarterback Byron Leftwich sustained fractured ribs in their 13-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact:

It looks like the earlier report of Byron Leftwich being out "a while" was dead on. Considering how reluctant the Steelers were to put 37 year old Batch into the game Sunday Night, with Leftwich in obvious pain, we can't see them having much faith in Batch's in-game abilities at this point in his career. The Steelers are expected to work out QBs.

Steelers are concerned QB Byron Leftwich will be out for a while with injuries. Big Ben in doubt for Sunday, so they expect to workout QBs this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Charlie Batch is next on the depth chart if neither Ben nor Leftwich can play. With Isaac Redman having a concussion, expect the running game with at least Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer to be very active against the Browns as the Steelers are hoping Ben can return for Week 13 against the Ravens.

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review - [Full Article]

While Steeler QB Byron Leftwich stunned the Ravens with his legs, he couldn’t get much done with his right arm, perhaps in part because he was nursing his own rib and shoulder injury for much of the second half.

“Leftwich was hurt pretty much the whole game,” safety Ryan Clark said. “We couldn’t make a play for him.”

Leftwich downplayed the injury, saying only, “I’m OK.
