In a game against the Ravens on Saturday, Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph suffered a head injury after an illegal hit during the third quarter by Earl Thomas. Taking a serious hit, Rudolph was quickly rushed out of the game and did not return. Players and fans took to social media to express their worries for this quarterback.


During the third quarter, after a pass to James Washington, Rudolph was hit in the chin by Earl Thomas and knocked unconscious. As players gathered around him, many began to worry about his state. Fellow Steelers player Juju Smith-Schuster was seen crying on the field as Rudolph was taken to the emergency room.


The Steelers quarterback was diagnosed with a concussion and it was announced that he would not be returning to the field that game. Devlin Hodges replaced Rudolph later that game, which worked out for Steelers fans because he scored a touchdown for the team later that game.
