    Steelers' Mason Rudolph: May get fined for role in brawl

    Mason Rudolph could be subject to a fine for his role during the brawl that ensued late in the fourth quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 21-7 loss to the Browns on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.The second-year signal-caller was the victim of the most flagrant conduct of the fight, as Browns defensive end Myles Garrett pulled Rudolph's helmet off the quarterback and then swung it at Rudolph's head. Garrett received an indefinite suspension for his actions, while Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey were handed one- and three-game suspensions, respectively. Though Rudolph avoided a suspension, the NFL will presumably review the video of the fight and determine whether the 24-year-old did anything to warrant a fine. In the meantime, Rudolph will look to move past an outing that was already an ugly one leading up to the fight. Rudolph finished the night with 23 completions on 44 attempts for 221 yards, a touchdown and a career-high four interceptions.

    Steelers' Mason Rudolph: Tosses four interceptions in loss

    Mason Rudolph completed 23 of 44 passes for 221 yards, a touchdown and four interceptions in Pittsburgh's 21-7 loss to Cleveland Thursday night. He also ran twice for 15 yards.Rudolph struggled early managing just 102 yards passing in the first half as the Pittsburgh Steelers fell behind 14-0. Injuries to James Conner (shoulder), JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Diontae Johnson (concussion) -- all forced out of action and unable to return -- only compounded Pittsburgh's offensive woes. Forced to play from behind Rudolph attempted more passes than in any previous game and the four interceptions matched his season total. Sadly -- with the outcome of the game already decided and just eight seconds to play -- Rudolph was tackled late by Myles Garrett who then grabbed Rudolph's helmet and struck him in the head. Rudolph appeared to be unharmed but will likely be evaluated. Pittsburgh will have 10 days to determine if he can play against Cincinnati. Earlier this season -- in just his second career start -- Rudolph faced the Bengals and completed 24 of 28 passes for 229 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Now with a few more starts under his belt Rudolph should have success against a Bengals pass defense that allows the fourth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks.

    Steelers' Mason Rudolph: Modest numbers in win

    Mason Rudolph completed 22 of 38 passes for 242 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Rams.It wasn't an impressive stat line, but Rudolph played mostly mistake-free football and produced the only non-defensive TD of the game on a three-yard pass to James Washington. Rudolph has tossed at least one touchdown in all seven of his starts this season, a streak he'll look to extend in Week 11 on the road against the Browns.

    Steelers' Mason Rudolph: Manages game in win over Colts

    Mason Rudolph completed 26 of 35 pass attempts for 191 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 26-24 win over the Colts.Rudolph was deployed quite conservatively again in this one, averaging 5.5 yards per attempt while directing 50 percent of his completions to running back Jaylen Samuels. James Washington was the only Pittsburgh wideout to top 16 receiving yards, while Juju Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson combined for just 19 yards on four catches. It's become clear Rudolph still lacks the consistency and confidence necessary to be an effective starting quarterback, but he's helped the team back to the .500 mark for the season. He should play the role of game manager -- albeit in a tougher matchup -- next Sunday at home against the Rams.

    Steelers' Mason Rudolph: Rebounds after shaky start

    Mason Rudolph completed 20 of 36 passes for 251 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in Monday's 27-14 win over the Dolphins.Looking rusty after returning from a concussion suffered in Pittsburgh's Week 4 overtime loss to Baltimore, Rudolph's first pass of the game was intercepted by Xavien Howard. Rudolph continued to struggle and had a second interception reversed and ruled incomplete on the next offensive series. Trailing 14-0 after one quarter, Pittsburgh got things going on offense, including a 45-yard touchdown pass to Diontae Johnson and a 26-yard touchdown pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster. The Pittsburgh Steelers have now earned victories in three of their last four games after starting the season 0-3, but this coming Sunday they'll face a tough Indianapolis team that heads into Week 9 on a three-game winning streak.

    Steelers' Mason Rudolph: Cleared to play

    Mason Rudolph is no longer in the NFL's concussion protocol, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.With Rudolph having been cleared by an independent neurologist, the QB will be able to work fully after the Pittsburgh Steelers' Week 7 bye. In his looming return to action as a starter, Rudolph will face the 0-5 Dolphins. Meanwhile, Devlin Hodges is slated to resume working in a backup capacity.

    Steelers' Mason Rudolph: Remains in concussion protocol

    Mason Rudolph still is in the concussion protocol as of Tuesday evening, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.With the Pittsburgh Steelers on bye and not taking the field again until Monday, Oct. 28 against the Dolphins, there isn't much urgency for Rudolph to get over his concussion, at least not yet. On Monday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reported that Rudolph is aiming to be cleared by the team the Steelers reconvene next week, so plenty of time remains to get through all five steps of the protocol. During his sole absence this past Sunday against the Chargers, Devlin Hodges led the team to a 24-17 victory, completing 15 of 20 passes for 132 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

    Steelers' Mason Rudolph: Targeting return in Week 8

    Mason Rudolph (concussion) is eyeing a return to action in the Pittsburgh Steelers' Week 8 game against the Dolphins on Oct. 28, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.Though Rudolph sat out Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chargers, the second-year signal-caller has been progressing quicker than expected after he was hospitalized following a helmet-to-helmet hit one week earlier in a loss to Baltimore. Rudolph resumed practicing on a limited basis last week and looks like he could be ready to advance to full-contact work -- if not clear the five-step concussion protocol entirely -- when the Steelers reconvene following a Week 7 bye. Undrafted rookie Devlin Hodges drew the start against the Chargers and completed 15 of 20 attempts for 132 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the outing, but that probably won't be enough to keep him atop the depth chart if Rudolph is given the green light to play Week 8.

    Mason Rudolph (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday night's game against the Chargers, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.Rudolph was able to practice in a limited fashion this past week, but with a Week 7 bye on tap, the team will play it safe with him and start Devlin Hodges at QB on Sunday.
