Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett suffered an injury just before halftime in the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The quarterback took a huge hit to his right side and he immediately went off of the field in a lot of pain. He looked to be holding on to his ribs which is not a good sign for Steelers fans. Backup Mitchell Trubisky is now in at quarterback for Pittsburgh.

Pickett and the Steelers are down 9-3 to the Jaguars at halftime and now it looks as if they will be without their starting quarterback for possibly the rest of the game. The quarterback has 73 passing yards so far in this one, and we will see if he can come back in the game.
So far this season, he has amounted to 1,257 passing yards and five touchdowns along with four interceptions.

Throughout his career, Pickett has gone for 3,661 passing yards and 12 touchdowns along with 13 interceptions.
Update: Pickett has been evaluated for a rib injury and has been officially ruled out for the rest of the game.
