PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There are two new faces on the Steelers’ roster.
One of them, however, is pretty familiar to Steelers fans.
Plaxico Burress is back to help fill holes at wide receiver.
And Bryan Hoyer will be backing up Charlie Batch this Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
Coach Mike Tomlin says he has great deal of confidence in Batch, and says there will only be “subtle” changes to maximize Batch’s strengths as starting QB.
