Byron Leftwich: Plays Through Rib Issue

Posted on November 19, 2012 at 7:42 AM


Though Leftwich suffered a rib injury Sunday night against the Ravens, he didn't miss a snap in the game, reports.


Leftwich took several hard shots Sunday, and while it got to the point that Charlie Batch was spotted warming up on the sideline, he downplayed the issue. "I'm OK," Leftwich said after Sunday's game. We'll have to see if his practice participation is impacted in the next few days, but assuming no complications or setbacks, he'll start in place of Ben Roethlisberger (ribs/shoulder) once again this coming Sunday against the Browns.
