12:02 PM ET 11.19 | The Pittsburgh Steelers will likely work out free agent quarterbacks this week, as backup Byron Leftwich might not be able to play after suffering a rib injury while filling in for Ben Roethlisberger. Jason La Canfora of CBS reports that the Steelers are worried that Leftwich's injuries will keep him from playing next Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, although he did return to the game after taking a big hit Sunday night. Leftwich had been forced into a starting role when Roethlsiberger also suffered a rib injury last week against the Kansas City Chiefs that keep him out for up to a month.

Looked like the **** injured himself on his celebratory dive into the end zone.

Maybe he just didn't want to have to wear that butt ugly uniform anymore.

They'd be better off with no QB

That's exactly what happened...what an idiot.

I'd much rather have Batch in there anyway...whether Leftwich is healthy or not.

It's a wonder how he's even still in the NFL with those mechanics...even worse than Tebow.

Same here. Leftwich sucks. Batch is a decent backup. And those striped unis should be burned!

They look like "Mean Machine" uniforms from the Longest Yard

That was a celebratory dive? He needs to work on it, then; I thought he just tripped himself up.

Only if he has to wear one of those retro uniforms. Even if he's the only guy on the Steelers wearing one that day.

After they've gone through the prison laundry about 100 times.

Actually, I kinda like 'em. And the stripes make the offensive linemen look thin.

Ahahahahahaa
I predicted this a week ago!

They look like mutant bumble bees

November 19, 2012  03:06 PM ET

I like their uni's--they look like bees. Especially their swarming defense!

Maybe they will keep the uni's and re-name the team the Pittsburgh Killer Bees!

Or maybe I should take my meds now.

Those Dirty birds...


The NFL suspended Baltimore Ravens All-Pro safety Ed Reed on Monday for one game without pay for violations of a rule prohibiting hits to the head and neck area of defenseless players, reports NFL.com.

Reed was penalized for unnecessary roughness in the Ravens??? 13-10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. The league says it is Reed???s third violation in three years of rules protecting defenseless players. Reed will not play in the Ravens game against the San Diego Chargers next Sunday.

The question is, will the Chargers bother to show up for the game.
