With just over 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter in their match up with the New York Jets, the Pittsburgh Steelers have gone with Mason Rudolph at quarterback.

After throwing it his second interception of the game, Devlin Hodges it’s not on the sidelines in favor of the second year third-round draft pick out of Oklahoma State. It will be Rudolph’s first action since he was pulled in favor of Hodges against Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12.

Hodges was five of seven for 53 yards passing before exiting the game. Both of his incompletions were interceptions.

Although head coach Mike Tomlin did not want to anticipate failure from Hodges coming off of his four interception performance against the Buffalo Bills and Week 15, Mason Rudolph reportedly did have an added workload of first-team reps throughout practice this week.
