Rookie Kenny Pickett will remain the Pittsburgh Steelers' starting quarterback, head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday.

The 24-year-old passer remains in the concussion protocol but isn't expected to be limited in practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.

"If he's cleared to play, he'll play," Tomlin said.

"We're not going to blow in the wind. We're going to be somewhat steady," Tomlin said when asked about the decision to stick with Pickett as the starter.
