Steelers QB Mason Rudolph knocked out after big hit vs. Ravens
Everyone at Heinz Field held their breath after seeing Mason Rudolph fall to the ground as he took a nasty hit from Earl Thomas. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback was seemingly knocked out following the hit against the Baltimore Ravens per Tom Pelissero.
Earl Thomas made the hit on Rudolph, who hit his head as he went to the ground and was flat on his back as teammates looked for help. They are bringing out a cart, back board, etc.

On the play, Rudolph delivered a remarkable pass downfield to James Washington for a 26-yard gain. At the same time, the second-year quarterback took a hit directly to his head from the Ravens All-Pro safety.
After the hit, Rudolph’s teammates were frantically waving their arms to get the medical staff’s attention. Unfortunately, the young quarterback had to be carted off as the stadium was holding their breath. Especially since the fans have already seen Ben Roethlisberger ruled out for the remainder of the season.
As we hope the injury isn’t anything serious, we will continue to get details on the quarterback. While he exits from the game, Devlin Hodges will become the quarterback for the Steelers in this game.
