Last year Dixon looked great during the preseason before suffering a season-ending injury of his own. Batch ended up having had a great game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers while Ben Roethlisberger was serving a suspension but so far he’s only had four pass attempts during the preseason. Dixon will most likely end up as the teams backup as they been using him a good amount in the previous weeks. You can expect to a lot of both players next week.
