Steelers rule out Mason Rudolph for Week 6 against Chargers – Yardbarker

The Pittsburgh Steelers will not have Mason Rudolph under center for their Week 6 battle against the Los Angeles Chargers. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Rudolph (concussion) has been ruled out, and that undrafted rookie Devlin Hodges will make his first NFL start: The Steelers confirmed Rudolph’s status: Rudolph was knocked out cold during last Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. Earl Thomas hit him in the head on a sandwich tackle, and Rudolph was knocked unconscious before he ever hit the ground. That hit has subsequently garnered a $21,000 fine from the NFL, which Thomas is appealing. Hodges, who joined the Steelers as an undrafted rookie out of Samford, played last week when Rudolph exited the game, going 7-of-9 for 68 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions as Pittsburgh lost to Baltimore in overtime.
