Batch will start for Steelers vs. Rams

The Pittsburgh Steelers will start backup quarterback Charlie Batch for Saturday's game with the St. Louis Rams, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Ben Roethlisberger, who had four turnovers in Monday night's loss to San Francisco, will rest his injured ankle.

The Steelers need Roethlisberger for the postseason more than they need him to try and win the AFC North, so with a playoff berth already in hand, Pittsburgh will opt to have Big Ben as healthy as possible for the playoffs.
