Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (knee) says he'll be 'ready to go by Sunday' vs. Ravens

Kenny Pickett's knee injury cost him the final quarter of Pittsburgh's blowout loss to Houston, but it sounds as if that will be the only price he'll pay going forward.

Pickett told reporters Wednesday he's feeling well enough to expect to play in the Steelers' Week 5 contest against the Baltimore Ravens.

"Good, good," Pickett said when asked how he feels, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Brian Batko. "I'll be ready to go by Sunday."

Pickett, who was a limited participant Wednesday, added he's been wearing a knee brace in practice, but isn't sure if he'll wear one in Sunday's AFC North showdown.

Pickett suffered the injury on a fourth-down play late in the third quarter of the Steelers' Week 4 loss, in which he ran into an oncoming rusher and was twisted as he was taken down for a sack. Mitch Trubisky replaced him for the remainder of the 30-6 defeat.
