Mason Rudolph suffers head injury, walks off with assistance

Rudolph appeared to lose consciousness as he took a late hit to head

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

Mason Rudolph was knocked out of Sunday’s game in the third quarter after taking a late hit to the head from Ravens’ safety Earl Thomas.

Rudolph lay motionless on the ground for several momonets as teammates rallied around him. The injury cart came on to the field for Rudolph, but due to a cart malfunction, Rudolph came off the field with the aide of his teammates.

Rudolph was 13 of 20 passing for 131 yards and a 35-yard touchdown to JuJu Smith-Schuster before exiting the game. Back up Devlin Hodges is now in as the Steelers quarterback.
