Mason Rudolph Benched And Then Addresses Claims Of Racial Slur

Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph was benched from his team’s 16-10 win over the Bengals on Sunday but after the game, he had to address questions about Myles Garrett claiming he used a racial slur during their melee on Thursday Night Football.

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

Rudolph reiterated the claims were “totally untrue” and when asked if he said anything that could have been construed in a racist way, he responded by saying, “Absolutely not.”

Rudolph went 8-of-16 for 85 yards and an interception before getting benched for Devlin Hodges in the third quarter of Sunday’s game.
