Steelers Place QB Mason Rudolph on Injured Reserve



Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph has been placed on injured reserve. The move, which effectively ends Rudolph’s season, was announced by the Steelers on Tuesday morning.

Rudolph injured his shoulder in the team’s loss to the Jets on Sunday after replacing Devlin Hodges in the second half. Hodges, who claimed the starting job from Rudolph midway through the season, was benched for poor play. After entering the game, Rudolph completed 14 out of 20 pass attempts for 129 yards and connected with Diontae Johnson for the Steelers only touchdown of the day.

Rudolph’s injury now takes the decision of who to start in a must-win game against Baltimore out of Mike Tomlin’s hands.

In 10 games played this season, which included starting eight, Rudolph led the Steelers to a 5-3 record, completed 62% of his passes for 1,765 yards with 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Center J.C. Hassenauer was activated from the practice squad to fill the open spot on the 53-man roster.
