Leftwich is Steelers’ backup QB

Byron Leftwich, inactive with a sprained left knee during Ben
Roethlisberger’s four-game suspension, is the Steelers’ backup
quarterback against the Cleveland Browns.

Charlie Batch, who started twice and played most of the previous
three games, is the No. 3 quarterback.

The Browns are without injured right tackle John St. Clair
(ankle) and defensive end Robaire Smith (back). As expected, they
also didn’t dress either of their injured quarterbacks, Seneca
Wallace or Jake Delhomme.

Wide receiver Carlton Mitchell, guard Shawn Lauvao, tight end
Alex Smith and defensive end Jayme Mitchell also were inactive.

Also, Pittsburgh sat down WR Antonio Brown. Among other Steelers
inactives are CB Keenan Lewis and Crezdon Butler.
