Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph Put On Injured Reserve List After Shoulder Injury

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph has been put on the injured reserve list after a shoulder injury.

The Steelers lost Sunday’s game against the New York Jets 16-10.

Hodges was benched earlier in that game after throwing two interceptions but then stepped back in during the fourth quarter when Rudolph left with an injury.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Mason sustained a sternoclavicular joint dislocation after being hit by two Jets players at once. Rapoport says he had a successful procedure to reset it. He was reportedly released from the hospital and can start throwing again in 6 to 8 weeks.


The next game is Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens, who have already clinched the No. 1 seed for the AFC playoffs, will be without a few of their starters for Sunday’s game against the Steelers.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on Monday that Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram, Earl Thomas, Brandon Williams and Marshall Yanda will not play.

The Ravens have already clinched the No. 1 seed for the AFC playoffs, while the Steelers need a win and a loss by the Tennessee Titans in order to secure a playoff spot.

To make up for quarterback woes, the Steelers say they have signed J.T. Barrett to the practice squad.

The Steelers also promoted center J.C. Hassenauer from the practice squad.

Maurkice Pouncey is also out while James Conner is questionable.
