PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Ben Roethlisberger will not be the starting quarterback when the Steelers face the St. Louis Rams tomorrow.

Instead, veteran Charlie Batch is getting the start.

Batch is not unfamiliar to coming into the lineup and winning for the Steelers.

Last year, when just about everyone felt the Steelers would be hard pressed to split their four games during Roethlisberger’s league suspension, Batch delivered three wins, only one loss and plenty of passing yards.

The assignment tomorrow is the St. Louis Rams who have struggled for the lion’s share of this season.

So, it makes sense to rest Roethlisberger against this team at home.
