Deflated football found in Steelers-Eagles game

REPORT: NFL Investigating Deflated Football Pittsburgh Steelers Used Thursday Night vs. Eagles

The NFL issued a statement on the report of a deflated football being found in the Steelers-Eagles preseason matchup Thursday.

National Football League officials say all the proper procedures were followed during the game Thursday night. Rudolph, the Steelers third-round pick, finished 7 of 12 for 101 yards.

NFL Vice President of Football Communications Michael Signora told Rapoport that "all footballs were in compliance with NFL rules following the pregame inspection process & all proper procedures were followed". Eskin also said the National Football League is investigating, though it was a brief one.

Eagles reporters better be on the lookout for rogue footballs during upcoming practices because on Sunday, the Eagles announced that they signed former second-round pick Christian Hackenberg.

A helmet belonging to a Philadelphia Eagle player is seen prior to the game against the Denver Broncos at Lincoln Financial Field on November 5, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. "The next thing I knew, the NFL was checking the football". The ball was found during the third quarter when Steelers third-round rookie quarterback Mason Rudolph at the helm.

The Giants had recovered two turnovers and measured the balls on their sideline; they came up at 11.4 PSI and 11.8.
