Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was asked about the decision to go with Duck Hodges as the team’s Week 13 starter.
“I’d been benched once in college for a half and once in high school,” Rudolph said, via ESPN.com. “So yeah, there’s some past experiences you do draw from. I conquered that, and I think I’ll conquer this the same way. Just going to be a matter of staying true to myself and believing in myself and staying in the fight.”
