Pickett had an MRI when the team returned from Houston and the injury is not serious. Team sources said he "will be fine," but it is not clear how much time, if any, he will miss.

Pickett injured his left knee in the third quarter when he was sacked on a 4th-and-1 play by defensive end Jonathan Greenard and twisted his knee.

He had to be helped from the field and was replaced by Mitch Trubisky.

Meantime, tight end Pat Freiermuth is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a hamstring injury sustained against the Texans. His injury leaves just one true tight end — rookie Darnell Washington — on the roster.


Coach Mike Tomlin might update Pickett’s status Tuesday during his weekly press conference, though he is not typically forthcoming about a player’s availability for the upcoming game.

The Steelers play host to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at Acrisure Stadium.
