    Default Dixon out longer than expected

    Steelers' Dixon out longer than expected
    Friday, September 24, 2010
    By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Dennis Dixon will be [HIGH-LIGHT]out six weeks[/HIGH-LIGHT] after having surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee, the Post-Gazette has learned.

    [IMGR]http://i54.tinypic.com/fan2ti.jpg[/IMGR]It was originally thought Dixon, the team's No. 3 quarterback, would be out three to five weeks after being injured in the second quarter of the Steelers' 19-11 victory Sunday in Tennessee. But, even though the surgery went very well and determined there was no major damage, Dixon will be out even longer than anticipated. If the prognosis is accurate, he will not return until the Nov. 14 game against the New England Patriots.

    Coach Mike Tomlin said the other day he has no plans to sign another quarterback to the roster. Ben Roethlisberger will miss two more games before his four-game suspension is over.

    Well.....

    It's not like he was going to be used in some meaningful fashion when Ben came back anyways unless there was a person not in a coma that believed Tomlin wouldn't start Ben in Week 5 over Dennis Dixon if Dixon were healthy and the Steelers were winning lol:

    I'll say it because that's how a I roll

    What's scary Kip, is there were guys who were actually ready to pass the torch to Dixon not to long ago and get rid of Ben.

    Why don't we just put Dixon on IR? Save the roster spot and keep Batch and Leftwich. This way we carry all 4 while only using 3 spots until we figure out the mess at the end of the season.

    By not putting him on IR someone has to be cut when he returns.

    Exactly. I do think, however, they'll revisit this idea in two weeks, but Dixon on IR and keep 3 QBs the rest of the year. it's not like Arians had actual plans to use Dixon in a package anyway.
