    Default BREAKING-Steelers Leftwich goes down with knee injury

    BREAKING-Steelers Leftwich goes down with knee injury

    The decision for the Pittsburgh Steelers starting quarterback might have just gotten a lot easier. QB Byron Leftwich has gone down with a knee injury at the 10 minute mark in the second quarter. Reports state that Leftwich was examined on a stretcher before exiting the field. He was not expected to return to the game.

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that Leftwich has been taken to a local hospital for an MRI examination.

    It was reported in the past few days that veteran QB Charlie Batch was believed to be on the bubble for the Steelers, depending on Leftwich’s injury, perhaps not so much now.

    Bad news for Byron Leftwich. His left knee was hit while he was throwing by teammate Jonathan Scott and it appears he may have torn something.

    He was taken to the hospital for an MRI, but the Steelers don't think it looks good.

    Is there any definitive word or official word yet? I am not watching the game. I'm waiting until it airs on NFLN Saturday.

    Byron Leftwich Out With Left Knee Injury

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP)




    Byron Leftwich No. 4 of the Pittsburgh Steelers warms up prior to the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers on Sept. 2, 2010 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

    Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich is reportedly on the way to a Pittsburgh hospital to get an MRI after he injured his left knee in the second quarter of the team's preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Leftwich threw an 18-yard pass to rookie Emmanuel Sanders before being knocked off his feet as running back Mewelde Moore attempted to block safety Marcus Hudson. The play occurred with 10:25 left in the second quarter Thursday night.

    Leftwich was examined by team doctors on a stretcher behind the Steelers' bench, then limped into a nearby tunnel that leads to the locker room.

    Leftwich has MCL damage

    Posted by Mike Florio on September 2, 2010 10:25 PM ET


    An agency purporting to represent Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich has posted on Twitter that Leftwich suffered a torn MCL on Thursday night in the preseason finale against the Panthers.

    The Twitter page assigned to Pro Player Solutions links to a website that makes the entire thing seem legit. But as further proof of the flaws in Mike Wise's logic, we didn't take this one at face value, because it wasn't contained in a report from a tenured member of a respected media company.

    Based on the PPS tweet, we have learned via a source with knowledge of the situation that Leftwich has damage to his MCL. The degree of the damage isn't known.

    Still, the source added, "Whatever [the degree] is it seems to be serious."

    The MCL is a rope-like ligament that, if not completely severed, often can heal with rest. Until the degree of Leftwich's injury is known, the duration of his absence will be uncertain.

    Still, with his primary assignment for 2010 covering the next four games (or if Terry Bradshaw gets his wish six), the existence of any MCL damage constitutes bad news for Leftwich.

    UPDATE: In a post-game press conference, coach Mike Tomlin said that Leftwich has a knee sprain and that he is undergoing an MRI.
