Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett left Sunday's game against the host Houston Texans late in the third quarter with a left knee injury.

Pickett was ruled out, leaving Mitch Trubisky to take over at quarterback for Pittsburgh.

The Steelers were faced with fourth-and-1 from the Houston 33-yard line, trailing 16-6 with 1:16 left in the third quarter. They tried a passing play, the pocket collapsed on Pickett and defensive end Jonathan Greenard recorded the sack, with some of his body weight landing on Pickett's left leg.

Pickett needed help to get off the field, unable to put weight on the left leg.

He was evaluated in the medical tent before walking back to the locker room, no longer limping.

Pickett was 15-for-23 passing for 114 yards and an interception before leaving the game.
