FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that the Steelers will try out free agent QBs Patrick Ramsey and Todd Bouman.
They may not sign either, but at some point may decide to place Charlie Batch (wrist surgery) on injured reserve. Working out Ramsey, 30, and Bouman, 37, allows the Steelers' scouting department to update their emergency list. Nov. 26 - 11:53 am et

Steelers look at QBs Ramsey, Bouman

PITTSBURGH (AP)—The Pittsburgh Steelers (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/pit/;_ylt=Alox0um1F5Oll7DKRd74yPgdsLYF) have met with experienced quarterbacks Patrick Ramsey (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/5918/;_ylt=AqRec2FIsu4CAK8aHA4XcGUdsLYF)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/5918/news;_ylt=ApTgN20sc5Vc4iGr7b6avKEdsLYF) and Todd Bouman (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/4231/;_ylt=AgbWPZLkUUYjtA2jpp2SKpcdsLYF)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/4231/news;_ylt=AvnajGcAhmtoB93U_3f_CtkdsLYF), a sign that injured backup Charlie Batch (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/4319/;_ylt=AtzdeCu9wh1V.d2N9MPoaLgdsLYF)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/4319/news;_ylt=AsZtQ5BQV1.vnbVNZrX0XEkdsLYF) might be out longer than the team first expected.
Batch broke his left wrist in Kansas City on Sunday, leaving second-year quarterback Dennis Dixon (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/8933/;_ylt=Avn7bjIz0L38Z9TorxmnGrQdsLYF)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/8933/news;_ylt=AkzRsjNMmd5OI7qRAGCBskMdsLYF) as the only backup to starter Ben Roethlisberger (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/6770/;_ylt=AqSmQmRKQhqd4sRtnllg7zIdsLYF)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/6770/news;_ylt=Aucet_15X2yS2cMvIUdyqzcdsLYF) on the 53-man roster. Former Pitt quarterback Tyler Palko (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/8639/;_ylt=Asq8D8MRwqhkfMqLgdVvoSAdsLYF)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/8639/news;_ylt=AugufHXs07z1ZwdlmftssxYdsLYF) is on the practice squad.

Batch had surgery on Wednesday and was expected to be out two to four weeks.
Ramsey was cut by Tennessee last month. Bouman, a former Vikings backup, played briefly for Baltimore last season.

Don't know, let's just keep praying Ben doesn't go down to injury any more!

At this point, let's just hope this is preliminary scouting just in case. If they are confident in Dixon to be 2nd string right now there's no reason to bring another, however if Ben were to go down they would have already done their homework and could sign another backup right away if need be.
