It was reported earlier that Kenny Pickett was expected to miss significant time with his ankle injury, and now we know the estimated timetable for his absence.
According to Gerry Dulac, the Steelers quarterback is expected to undergo a procedure on his ankle on Monday and miss 2-4 weeks.

Pickett was injured on a run that got Pittsburgh to the Arizona one yard line in the second quarter of their Week 13 matchup. He came into the week with what Mike Tomlin called “ankle discomfort” and had the ankle heavily taped during the game Sunday.
The Steelers have a short turnaround, as they will host the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football in Week 14. It is yet to be determined if it will be Mitch Trubisky or Mason Rudolph who gets the starting nod in Pickett’s absence. Trubisky finished out the game against the Cardinals, going 11-of-11 for 117 and one touchdown.
