The Pittsburgh Steelers aren't waiting until the second half of the second preseason game to see Kenny Pickett in live action again.
Instead, coach Mike Tomlin said Thursday, the first-round draft pick will come into the game second, following starter Mitch Trubisky. Mason Rudolph will finish the game.
"We just simply want to see Kenny in more varsity action," Tomlin said. "We know more about Mason. Mitch has been around the professional game, obviously.
"And so this is a big week for [Pickett] in terms of maybe getting in in the first half of this game. And, I would imagine, getting the opportunity to see front-line defenders for Jacksonville."
Trubisky played two series against Seattle, and he said Thursday he would like to play more against Jacksonville. He completed 4 of 7 attempts for 63 yards with a touchdown. Rudolph followed him and completed 9 of 15 attempts for 93 yards and also had a touchdown throw.
