Baron Batch Injures Knee During Wednesday Practice

Unfortunate news from Latrobe on Wednesday afternoon as rookie running back Baron Batch was carted off the field with an apparent knee injury. The good news is that Batch was not hit. Instead, he went down in pain after making a cut during a running drill. The Steelers have no official prognosis or report on the specific nature or severity of the injury. The hope, of course, is that Batch merely sprained his knee. But considering how much pain he appeared to be in as well as the fact that he was making a sharp cut, the fear is that Batch might have suffered some sort of ligament damage.

Just terribly unfortunate news. You never want to see anybody get hurt, but Batch had already established himself as a fan favorite with his impressive first two weeks of camp and his interesting background and personal story that he’s been willing to share on his blog, Twitter and during radio interviews.

Stay tuned for more news on Batch’s injury, as well as other Steelers camp news and notes both here and at Behind the Steel Curtain.
