Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph left Sunday’s game with a concussion after appearing to be knocked out cold from a hit by Baltimore Ravens safety Earl Thomas II in the third quarter. Rudolph left Heinz Field to be further evaluated at a hospital.

Unfortunately Rudolph had to walk off the field with help from a few teammates because the stadium medical cart was broken.

Update: The Steelers claim that the cart failed due to ‘operator error”.

The medical cart situation drew the ire of Twitter and NFLPA President George Atallah who were astonished that such a rich league could not afford a working medical cart.

Update: The NFL released a statement claiming medical officials didn’t believe Rudolph needed a cart.

Fans called B.S. at the NFL’s explanation
