Rudolph was hit from behind by Baltimore’s Brandon Carr, but the shot that knocked him out came from from the front via a hit to the jaw from safety Earl Thomas III.
Pittsburgh’s JuJu Smith-Schuster appeared to collapse in concern following the play.

A crowd of concerned Steelers gathered around Mason after the play. However, the second year player got up after a few moments and was helped off the field. Mason would have been given the dignity of a cart ride off the field, however, the Steelers cart broke once it got on the field.
Rudolph was ruled out of the game with a concussion.
The Steelers have a 23-20 lead with just over two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
