PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Quarterback Mason Rudolph has been cleared and is now out of concussion protocol.

Steelers’ communications director Burt Lauten says, “Rudolph was cleared by an independent neurological consultant to fully return to action following the team’s bye weekend. Rudolph is no longer in the concussion protocol.”

Rudolph was knocked out cold in the third quarter after taking a hit from Baltimore Ravens Safety Earl Thomas.

Thomas was reportedly fined $21,000 for his hit.

Rudolph’s concussion forced him to miss Sunday night’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Backup QB Devlin Hodges threw for 132 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the 24-17 Steelers win.

Coach Mike Tomlin reiterated Wednesday that Rudolph is the team’s starting quarterback moving forward.
