From the Twitter account of the agency that represents Byron Leftiwch:
Our thoughts and concerns are with PPS client Byron Leftwich who tore his MCL this evening. Bad luck for a classy guy.
Sad stuff for Leftwich. But that's life in the brutal NFL. We wish Leftwich a speedy recovery with the hope that he can potentially even return later in the 2010 season. But he'll be shelved for a few months at least I'd imagine.
