The Pittsburgh Steelers (10-4) enter Saturday's game against the St. Louis Rams (2-12) with a hefty injury list:

Out

- RB Mewelde Moore

- DB Curtis Brown

- C/G Maurkice Pouncey

- WR Emmanuel Sanders

Questionable

- QB Ben Roethlisberger

- LB LaMarr Woodley

- LB Chris Carter

Friday morning, word got out that the Steelers were starting QB Charlie Batch in the place of injured QB Ben Roethlisberger. With Roethlisberger struggling with an ankle injury, the Steelers figure to lean heavily on RB Rashard Mendenhall and a Steelers running game averaging 4.3 yards per carry in 2011.

The Steelers are also hoping for a healthy recovery from LB Lamar Woodley, who has compiled an impressive 9.0 sacks and an interception so far this season.
