Mason Rudolph to miss Week 17 against the Ravens.

Devlin Hodges was benched in Week 16 after his awful start against the Jets and Mason Rudolph came in and played well, helping the Steelers tie up the game. Unfortunately, Rudolph suffered a shoulder injury and won’t be healthy for Week 17’s game against the Ravens according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Hodges will get the start according to Schefter with Paxton Lynch backing him up. If Hodges puts up a similar game in Week 17 as he did in Week 16, we could end up seeing Lynch get playing time.

None of these quarterbacks are good but the Steelers should get the Ravens as they rest their key players and if they win, they have a chance to still make the playoffs.
