Injury Update On Steelers Rookie Quarterback

He entered the concussion protocol during the Pittsburgh Steelers' Week 14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that quarterback Kenny Pickett has cleared concussion protocol and he expects him to start Saturday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Pickett was limited in practice last week before ultimately being ruled out for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Mitch Trubisky got the start instead, completing 17 of 22 passes for 179 yards, zero touchdowns and six carries for nine yards and a touchdown.

In his first 10 games, the twenty-four-year-old rookie has completed 191 of 294 pass attempts for four touchdowns and eight interceptions. He's also rushed 44 times for 225 yards and three touchdowns.

Barring any setbacks, Pickett looks in line to return this week against the Raiders.
