Steelers rookie back at work, preps for debut



NOTES: QB Byron Leftwich has been cleared after missing the past three games with injured ribs, but Tomlin gave no indication if he will reclaim the No. 2 quarterback job behind QB Ben Roethlisberger. Charlie Batch played well in Pittsburgh’s upset win at Baltimore Dec. 2. ... Tomlin said LB LaMarr Woodley (ankle) will return to practice this week after missing the past two games. ... Tomlin acknowledged that S Troy Polamalu “experienced a little tightness” in the right calf that caused him to miss nine of the first 11 games on Sunday but that there were “no setbacks.”
