Steelers: Kenny Pickett passes the second

If Mitchell Trubisky is officially the starting quarterback of the Steelers, that does not mean that Kenny Pickett has lost everything. On Tuesday, the Pittsburgh team released an update to its roster, now indicating that the rookie is the number 2 pitcher.

Chris Godwin still doesn’t know when he’ll be back

With the start of the season fast approaching, Chris Godwin still doesn’t know if he’ll be on the field Sunday against the Cowboys. Guest of the podcast “In the Moment with David Greene”, Godwin did not give more indications on a return date.

“I don’t think any of us know that yet. . . In the grand scheme of things, I don’t think it matters that much. I would like to be there for the whole season, but I think the most important thing is to be there for the second half of the season. To be there for what I missed last year”.
