Steelers Release QB Byron Leftwich

Steelers Digest on Twitter - [Full Article]

The Pittsburgh Steelers have released quarterback Byron Leftwich to free up roster space. Leftwich is expected back to rejoin the team next week.

Fantasy Impact: 

Quite a fall for Leftwich, who before the preseason was the favorite to be Pittsburgh's starter while Ben Roethlisberger was serving a suspension. It's not like you want to start Dennis Dixon this week, but he's clearly the man in Pittsburgh until Roethlisberger returns.
