QB - PIT
Week 7 Outlook
The Steelers placed Mason Rudolph (shoulder) on injured reserve.
Rudolph relieved Devlin Hodges in Week 16 but left the game with this shoulder injury. Pittsburgh will now have to turn back to Hodges for a must-win Week 17 matchup with the Ravens. Paxton Lynch will be his backup for that one. Rudolph appeared in 10 games this season and compiled a 13/9 TD/INT ratio.
Mason Rudolph is expected to miss Week 17's game against the Ravens due to his shoulder injury.
Rudolph came on to replace the ineffective Devlin Hodges in Week 16's loss to the Jets only to get hurt and exit the game. Rudolph's injury means Hodges will likely be under center with Paxton Lynch backing him up. This is not a situation to target for fantasy purposes, even against Ravens' reserves.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph completed 14-of-20 passes for 129 yards and a touchdown in a 16-10 loss to the Jets in Week 16.
Rudolph replaced ineffective Devlin Hodges during the game but injured his shoulder and was unable to return. If his left shoulder is feeling better, Rudolph would presumably be under center when the Steelers face the Ravens in Week 17.
Mason Rudolph replaced Devlin Hodges as the team’s quarterback in Sunday’s game against the Jets.
Hodges threw two interceptions in the first quarter and was replaced by Rudolph. The Steelers are looking for a spark on offense and will turn to Rudolph to shake things up.
