    Byron Leftwich serious elbow injury

    He left the game in the 3rd quarter. Ed Bouchette said he was screaming in pain. No official update yet though.

    Update after the game:
    Steelers backup quarterback Byron Leftwich broke his left arm in the third quarter Saturday night and likely will be out for the season.

    But coach Mike Tomlin refused to say that after a 34-16 victory against the Atlanta Falcons.

    "I don't have the time he is going to be out, but I am sure it will be an extended period of time," Tomlin said.

    Leftwich suffered the injury when he landed awkwardly after scrambling for 6 yards. He immediately ran to the sideline screaming in pain.
    "It is disheartening," receiver Antonio Brown said. "To see him in that type of pain really hurt me."

    Leftwich was wheeled through the locker room after the game on a gurney as teammates and coaches wished him well.
    Leftwich's injury paves the way for the Steelers to keep both Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon. Before the injury, one of them likely would have been cut before the season opener.

    "It just goes to show you it's good to have four NFL-capable quarterbacks in a training camp-like setting," Tomlin said. "It always has a way of working its way out."

    Wow. Earlier today I said I doubted we would need Dixon or Batch. Oops.

    Season ending injury for sure, lets just up it isn't a career ending injury.
