Ravens safety Earl Thomas worried about Mason Rudolph after big hit in Steelers game
Earl Thomas and the Baltimore Ravens were able to pull off a 26-23 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was a great all-around game, but there was an incredibly scary moment during the game.
Mason Rudolph, the Steelers’ quarterback, took a brutal hit from Thomas. He took the hit and went limp. After the injury, Rudolph was taken the hospital and there is a lot of concern surrounding him right now.
One of the most worried people is the Ravens’ safety himself, who shared his thoughts about the injury after the game. Thomas opened up about the hit and made it clear that he did not try to injure Rudolph. He also shared his concern for Rudolph and his family in the quote that was shared by Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.
Thomas on Rudolph hit: "I didn’t go high. I didn’t intentionally try to hurt him. I’m worried about him. I heard he’s at the hospital. My prayers go out to him and his family. I’ve never tried to hurt anybody. At the end of the day, guys have families."

Now, we can only hope that Rudolph’s injury will not be as serious as it looked. He is a talented young quarterback and has a bright future ahead of him in the NFL. This kind of hit is always scary, especially when a player has to go to the hospital immediately following it.
If Rudolph is forced to miss a significant amount of time, the Steelers will have some decisions to make. Devlin Hodges came in at quarterback for Pittsburgh after the injury. They may be forced to look outside the organization for another quarterback,.
The Ravens did pick up the win and moved to 3-2. While the win is huge for the Ravens, the big story coming out of the game is about Rudolph and finding out his status moving forward.
