Rob Chudzinski confirmed in his post game press conference that Jason Campbell suffered a concussion during the third quarter in the teams’ loss to the Steelers.
Campbell went down earlier in the game with a rib injury, but came back on the next possession. After being hit in the head in the third quarter, Campbell was helped from the field and taken by cart to the locker room.
The Steelers were not penalized for the hit on Campbell.
“I talked to the officials about that,” said Chudzinski. “I felt like he was hit on the head on that. They didn’t feel that way.”
The explanation given to Chudzinski on the sidelines was that Campbell was hit on the shoulder. Replay confirms what the coach and team thought, that he was indeed hit in the head.
When asked about bringing in another quarterback, Chudzinski sad that the team would evaluate it, and that it was a possibility.
Brandon Weeden came in for the injured Campbell. He was 13 of 30 for 209 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He also lost a fumble on a scramble late in the fourth quarter. His interception was returned for a touchdown.
