That's odd, of course, since practice squad players don't make much, and the Steelers' quarterback situation could well create an opportunity. Both Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich are hurt, leaving the Steelers with only Charlie Batch.
The Steelers are hunting for a new quarterback this week. Former Patriots signal-caller Brian Hoyer appears to be a possibility, along with former Eagle Mike Kafka. (The Steelers are still probably about one injury short of being able to call their current quarterback situation "Kafkaesque," but if they sign Mike, they can presumably skip straight there.) Both Kafka and Hoyer will work out with the Steelers Tuesday. In any case, look for the Steelers to sign someone in the coming days. They play the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
