Report: Steelers to work out QB Kafka

Former Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback [URL="http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/24097"]Mike Kafka[/URL] will work out for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, according to a report on ESPN's halftime show from Monday night.
Kafka was a bit of a surprise cut this summer by the Eagles, who released him in favor of rookie [URL="http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/25798"]Nick Foles[/URL] as [URL="http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/5448"]Michael Vick[/URL]'s backup.
The Steelers are in need of a quarterback as they now turn to third-stringer and long-time backup [URL="http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/4319"]Charlie Batch[/URL] to start this week against Cleveland. [URL="http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/6770"]Ben Roethlisberger[/URL] suffered a fractured rib and separated shoulder against Kansas City.
Then, [URL="http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/6343"]Byron Leftwich[/URL] broke two ribs in Sunday night's loss to the Baltimore Ravens, leaving Batch as the Steelers only healthy QB.
