"We had him evaluated and saw that that was necessary, so we made the decision to fix it ASAP and it was fixed yesterday", Tomlin said. Quarterback Mason Rudolph was able to return to limited participation in practice for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wednesday just days after sustaining a concussion against the Baltimore Ravens. There's no timetable for his return, though he's unlikely to play in Week 6, especially with the team's Week 7 bye looming. He walked off the field because he chose to walk off the field, and the medical experts were comfortable with his ability to walk off the field and the safety in it. "The medical cart not functioning was irrelevant".

Rudolph remains in the concussion protocol and coach Mike Tomlin wouldn't speculate on his status for Sunday's game in Los Angeles against the Chargers.

"I don't know that", Fichtner said, when asked if Hodges was the starter. I think that the changeup in how their defense is designed is making them a little more hard.

The Steelers (1-4) are slated to visit the Chargers (2-3) at 8:20 p.m. ET Sunday.

It's been a whirlwind year for Hodges, who wanted to play for Nick Saban at Alabama coming out of high school before eventually settling in at Samford. But after the Steelers traded away Josh Dobbs, they signed Hodges, a Walter Payton Award victor, to the practice squad. Pittsburgh won on a touchdown on the final snap. Samuels will be out about a month after surgery for a sprained left knee. Highly productive in special teams. "We drafted him to be a running back and he will get an opportunity to get more exposure there because of the injury to Jaylen and I am sure he will be excited about it".
