Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett suffered a bone bruise to his knee Sunday against the Houston Texans, head coach Mike Tomlin announced Tuesday.

Tomlin added that Pickett will participate in practice Wednesday and will let the quarterback's comfort and play determine his availability for Sunday's Week 5 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.

The 25-year-old went down in the third quarter Sunday and was replaced by Mitchell Trubisky. Trubisky completed three of five passes for 18 yards.

Pickett and the Steelers' offense struggled before the second-year signal-caller exited the contest. He left the game with 114 yards and an interception on 15 of 23 passing. Pickett was also sacked three times.

The offense's inefficiency prompted coach Mike Tomlin to say postgame there'd be some changes after the "ugly" performance, but he declined to give specifics.
