(PITTSBURGH) — Quarterback Charlie Batch will get the start Saturday, when the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the St. Louis Rams.
Ben Roethlisberger is out due to an left ankle injury, and hasn’t practiced all week.
Batch joined the Steelers in 2003, and has a record of 4-2 as a spot starter.
The Steelers take on a Rams team who is starting their backup quarterback Kellen Clemens.
This will be the first start Big Ben has missed due to injury since 2009, when the Steelers lost to the Ravens.
