No one saw this coming including Hodges. It's a tough situation for the young passer though he did produce 68 yards on 7-of-9 passing in relief of Rudolph, who took a nasty blow under the chin and was out before he hit the ground. The Steelers are certain to keep the playbook as simple as possible and Paxton Lynch will likely be promoted from the practice squad to serve as an emergency fill-in, or potentially take over should Hodges not produce. There has been no indication how long Rudolph will be in the protocol but it would be no surprise should he miss multiple weeks. Unranked on DLF's quarterback rankings, Devlin Hodges should not be started in all but the most extreme of emergencies.
