Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was asked about the allegations from Myles Garrett that he called him a racial slur.

“I couldn’t believe it and I couldn’t believe that he would go that route after the fact. It is what it is I think I’ve moved on. One day it was tough, but moved on. We’re good to go now,” Rudolph said, via

When asked if he could have said anything that Garrett interpreted as a racial slur, Rudolph said: “Absolutely not. There was nothing. Not even close.

  • Regarding the decision to bench Rudolph in favor of Devlin Hodges, Tomlin said: “Just felt like our offense needed a spark. Mason wasn’t doing enough; Duck came in and provided us with a spark, made a couple plays. We’ll see what next week holds, next week. But I like the contributions of Duck; I like his readiness; I appreciate the efforts of Mason and also appreciate the support of Mason after we made the change.”
  • As for when he’ll make a decision regarding the team’s starting quarterback for Week 13, Tomlin said: “I may have already made it as I stand up here right now. I’m just not going to share it with you guys.” (Brooke Pryor)
