The Pittsburgh Steelers are releasing quarterback Mitch Trubisky after two seasons with the organization, the team announced on Monday. The 29-year-old appeared in five games (two starts) for the Steelers in 2023, completing 67 of his 107 passing attempts for 632 yards, four touchdowns, and five interceptions. Originally drafted by the Chicago Bears with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, he has failed to live up to expectations and will likely be nothing more than a backup moving forward. The Steelers have an interesting offseason ahead as they look to settle on a starting QB.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 16 of his 23 pass attempts for 169 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the team's 30-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He also added a one-yard rushing touchdown. Trubisky and the Steelers' offense struggled mightily, especially during the second half in which they failed to score a point. After tossing his second interception of the contest, Trubisky was benched in favor of Mason Rudolph, who took over for Pittsburgh's last two drives. Although head coach Mike Tomlin did not name a Week 16 starter following the loss, Kenny Pickett (ankle) is reportedly pushing to return next Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky is set to make a second consecutive start in relief of the injured Kenny Pickett (ankle). Trubisky struggled in a loss to the New England Patriots last week but will look to take advantage of a favorable matchup against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. The Colts have given up the fourth-most points to opposing offenses while surrendering the 14th-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. While it's possible that Trubisky turns in a solid showing, fantasy managers cannot have much confidence in the Steelers' offense right now. The 29-year-old should be considered a last-resort QB2 option in superflex leagues this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett (ankle) will miss a second straight game in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. The 25-year-old had tightrope surgery after suffering a right high-ankle sprain in Week 13. It's fair to wonder if Pickett will even be able to make it back for a divisional clash in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Trubisky made the start in last Thursday's upset loss to the New England Patriots and looked pretty bad, going 22-for-35 for 190 yards with a touchdown and interception. Pittsburgh's offense hasn't looked good all year, and that's probably not suddenly going to change anytime soon, especially with Trubisky now running the show. Trubisky will be a desperation low-end QB2 play for fantasy managers in superflex leagues against Indy.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 21 of his 34 pass attempts for 169 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 21-18 loss to the New England Patriots. He added 30 yards on the ground and a rushing touchdown on eight carries. Filling in for the injured Kenny Pickett (ankle), Trubisky struggled to lead the Steelers' offense on Thursday night. Although he connected with Diontae Johnson on a nice deep ball for a 25-yard score, the 29-year-old missed open receivers and made questionable decisions on multiple occasions. If Pickett is ruled out again in Week 15, Trubisky would likely be in line to make a second consecutive start against the Indianapolis Colts.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett (ankle) underwent tightrope surgery on a high-ankle sprain on Monday and has been ruled out for the Week 14 game on Thursday night against the New England Patriots. The good news is he's week-to-week and will avoid Injured Reserve, which would require him to miss at least four games. Mitch Trubisky will make the start this Thursday, which is bad news for a Steelers offense that looked improved in their Week 12 win in the first game without offensive coordinator Matt Canada. The 29-year-old Trubisky, a former second overall pick in 2017 by the Chicago Bears, has plenty of experience but will be a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues for however long he's starting for Pittsburgh. He 11-for-17 for 117 yards and a touchdown in relief of Pickett in the 24-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 11 of 17 pass attempts for 117 yards and a touchdown in a 24-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He also lost a fumble. Trubisky entered the contest late in the second quarter to relieve the injured Kenny Pickett (ankle). Pittsburgh struggled to do much offensively on Sunday but Trubisky managed to find Diontae Johnson for a 2-yard score in the fourth quarter. If Pickett cannot suit up on Thursday night against the New England Patriots, Trubisky would likely be in line to make his first start of the season.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett (ankle) exited during the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals and is officially questionable to return. Mitch Trubisky entered the contest in his place. At the time of his departure, Pickett had completed eight of 11 passes for 75 yards. Despite the change at quarterback, Steelers playmakers like George Pickens, Pat Freiermuth, Najee Harris, and Jaylen Warren remain viable fantasy options.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 15 of his 27 pass attempts for 138 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in a Week 8 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also added 18 rushing yards on three carries. Trubisky took over for the injured Kenny Pickett (ribs) late in the second quarter. Although the 29-year-old struggled for much of the second half, he did lead one successful drive for Pittsburgh that resulted in a 22-yard touchdown pass to George Pickens. If Pickett is unable to suit up in Week 9, Trubisky will likely get the start in a home matchup against the Tennessee Titans.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett exited during the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He had completed 10 of 16 passes for 73 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero turnovers prior to his departure. The Steelers didn't provide an immediate update on the second-year quarterback's injury, but it appeared to be of the upper-body variety. Pickett was favoring his rib and shoulder area and appeared to be in serious pain while heading to the locker room. Mitch Trubisky, whose only game action this season came back in Week 4, took over at quarterback and will remain under center for the duration of Pickett's absence.

He departed in the third quarter after completing 15 of 23 passes for 114 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. He added nine rushing yards but was also sacked three times in the contest.
