Dennis Dixon done for the season…


The Pittsburgh Steelers placed quarterback Dennis Dixon on injured reserve Saturday, according to a league source.

Dixon opened the season as the Steelers’ temporary replacement for Ben Roethlisberger, who is currently serving a four-week suspension, but injured his knee in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans.

Veteran quarterback Charlie Batch has filled in well since Dixon’s injury, recording 186 yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions in last week’s 38-13 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

With Dixon’s season over, the Steelers are likely to keep Batch and quarterback Byron Leftwich on the active roster when Roethlisberger returns from his suspension next week.
