Steelers bench Mason Rudolph for Devlin Hodges after brutal start

Rudolph was pulled early in the third quarter with the Steelers trailing the winless Bengals 7-3.

Rudolph had an 8-for-16 line for 85 yards and an interception vs. the Bengals.

Pittsburgh's offense still struggled with Hodges in at quarterback. Pittsburgh was wise to make the move because watching Rudolph play with so little confidence last week was a warning of just how bad things could be for him if he faced the Browns again in just three weeks.

Garrett has been indefinitely suspended for striking Rudolph in the head with Rudolph's helmet.

The fine represents more than the entire game check for Rudolph, whose yearly base salary is $658,267.

He also won his first National Football League start with a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers while Rudolph was in concussion protocol, completing three-fourths of his 20 passes but passing for just 132 yards and a touchdown with an interception in the mix.

Tomlin declined to disclose the quarterback plan going forward. If the Steelers hold on and win, you have to think Hodges has a good chance at starting next week.

"Just felt like our offence needed a spark", Tomlin told reporters following Sunday's game.
