NT Pickett Questionable vs. Steelers

Nose tackle Ryan Pickett played a bit of politics when he was asked Friday for a self-assessment on what he has meant to the ascension of the Green Bay Packers defense this season.

“That’s like a question like they ask the president—grade yourself?” Pickett said. “You’ll have to ask somebody else that. Whatever they say, I know I’ve just missed being out there playing with my teammates.”

Pickett has been the anchor of a defense that ranks second in the NFL against the run and hasn’t allowed a 100-yard rusher in the last 10 games. He missed the last game with a hamstring injury, but he has a chance to be a factor again in Sunday’s game at Pittsburgh.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Pickett’s status will be determined Saturday.

“The feedback was positive, but we’re dealing with a hamstring,” McCarthy said. “So, the day after the work will be the final hurdle.”

The Packers listed Pickett as questionable for the game, but the veteran run stuffer is confident he will return to the starting lineup Sunday.
