Steelers again turn to ageless Batch

Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Mike Wallace is in his fourth season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, so the wide receiver is familiar with all this talk about Charlie Batch.

Wallace says Batch has been old for a while. Wallace says, "Chuck's been old since I got here, so it's nothing new."

Batch will make another fill-in start for his hometown Steelers (6-4) when they hit the road to face Cleveland (2-8) on Sunday. For the eighth time since he signed with Pittsburgh 11 years ago, he will be under center to begin a game for the Steelers.

No Steeler is older than Batch, who turns 38 on Dec. 5. He spent the first four years of his career with Detroit, but only nose tackle Casey Hampton was with Pittsburgh before Batch arrived.
