Abram, Simmons among 2nd-year players poised for breakouts
Instead, the rookie safety injured his shoulder in the season opener and didnt play again last season. Now Abram is one of several second-year players poised for a breakout season in 2020. While Abrams season was cut short because of an injury, Tennessee first-round defensive tackle Jeffrey Simmons started late because of one. Simmons recovered in time to play nine games of the regular season and three playoff games. He showed flashes as a rookie with 59 catches for 680 yards and five TDs despite substandard quarterback play from Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges.
Steelers QB Rudolph out with concussion
(CNN) - A helmet-to-helmet collision left Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph unresponsive and later diagnosed with a concussion Sunday. As Rudolph let off a pass down field against the Baltimore Ravens, a defender's helmet smacked right into his. Burt Lauten, a Steelers spokesman, tweeted Sunday Rudolph wouldn't return to the game. "Rudolph is leaving Heinz Field to be further evaluated at a hospital," Lauten tweeted. Now that Rudolph is out, the Steelers will look to Devlin Hodges who was promoted from the practice squad after Roethlisberger was put on the reserve/injured list, according to the Steelers' website.
