Mason Rudolph Leaves Hospital, Support Pours In from Fellow Pokes and Pros

An outpouring of support after Rudolph’s scary injury.




Mason Rudolph took a nasty head-to-head hit from Baltimore safety Earl Thomas on Sunday during the third quarter of the Steelers’ 26-23 overtime loss to the Ravens. He was eventually helped off the field and ruled out with a concussion and then sent to a local hospital.

The good news is that, after being admitted to the hospital with a concussion, Rudolph was able to go home.

It was a scary scene that left several on hand visibly shaken up including Pittsburgh wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Several of Rudolph’s current and former teammates, fellow NFL players, and talking heads expressed their concerns and vowed their prayers and well wishes.

Rudolph’s counterpart across the sideline, fellow second-year pro Lamar Jackson, started his postgame presser expressing his concern.

Earl Thomas, who made the hit, explained that he did not intentionally injure Rudolph and that he was worried about him.
