Earlier in the week, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin made it clear there was no quarterback controversy. Despite Mitch Trubisky's great play after coming in for Kenny Pickett following his concussion in Week 6, Pickett remains the starter if he's able to play.

On Friday afternoon, it was announced that Pickett had cleared concussion protocol and is ready to suit up on Sunday, which means he will be starting under center.

This is great news on two fronts. For starters, it's encouraging to see Pickett recover so quickly, as concussions are scary injuries that can linger. Second, it's also a plus that he'll be able to continue his development for Pittsburgh with another start.

The Steelers draw a Week 7 matchup against the Miami Dolphins, where they are 7.5-point road underdogs according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
