PITTSBURGH — When the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Cleveland Browns this Sunday on their home turf, it will be without QB Mason Rudolph at the helm.

According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, Steelers' Coach Mike Tomlin has announced that QB Devlin Hodges will start. Rudolph has been benched.

This past weekend, Rudolph was fined $50,000 for his role in a fight with Browns players during their match up on Nov. 14. Browns QB Myles Garrett was suspended indefinitely.

Garrett received the suspension after he wrestled Steelers' quarterback Mason Rudolph to the ground in the last eight seconds of the game.

In a scrum on the ground, Rudolph got his hand on Garrett’s helmet first and appeared to kick Garrett in the groin while the players grappled.

Garrett got back on his feet, yanked Rudolph’s helmet off and swung wildly, hitting the quarterback on the top of the head. Rudolph threw his arms in the air in disbelief after the impact.

Garrett tried to appeal the suspension, but the NFL upheld the decision.
