Baron Batch may have only been a 7th round pick and the Steelers will survive without him, yet I was extremely disappointed that he tore his ACL.
I know there have been articles asking who cares and pretty much mocking fans who were disheartened by Batch’s injury, and I obviously disagree.
It is not that I thought Batch was the savior of the Steelers or that the team will do terrible without him, however, I like and root for guys who seem like they are really fighting for a spot on the roster.
Honestly, I thought the Steelers could choose to cut Mewelde Moore and have Batch be the third down back and at worst he would have probably taken Jonathan Dwyer’s roster spot.
Maybe he would have been a major contributor this season in some way or maybe he would have been inactive for the year, but I was severely disappointed that he got injured and I did not get to see him in the Preseason.
