A scary scene unfolded during today’s Steelers-Ravens game when Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was knocked out cold and later hospitalized after taking a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit from Ravens’ safety Earl Thomas.
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
