Byron Leftwich has first full practice
Quarterback Byron Leftwich, who injured his left knee in the final exhibition game Sept. 2, went through a full practice for the first time Friday and is listed as probable. While Leftwich's knee is improving, Dennis Dixon will make his second consecutive start in place of suspended quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Listed as doubtful are two rookies, linebacker Jason Worilds (shoulder) and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps). Rookie wide receiver and kick returner Antonio Brown may play after being held out of the season opener against Atlanta.
