I am listening to "Movin the Chains" on Sirius and Tim Ryan just said that last night Ward said he had a grade 2 tear of his MCL. Grade 2 equates to 80% tear which is usually requires 4-6 weeks healing time.

How much heart does this guy have?

Amazing....

Ward is the heart and soul of this team. To play with that injury is just ballsy.

I doubted some that say he is the toughest guy "pound for pound" in the NFL.......but he's gotta be top 5.

Drizzle......I love the sig!!!! I still see nothing wrong with that Harrison hit. Its an open palm in the front of the shoulder pad....it wasnt in the back or a closed fist punch.

That is why Hines is a Pittsburgh Steeler and the toughest SOB I have ever seen play.

I thought I saw him crying tears of joy after the game. Nope, the poor dude was in excrucuating pain all night long. :chuckle:

Yet, I don't think I saw him playing half speed on any play last night,

Hines, and guys like him are parts of the reason, why this team are so great.

Never say die, will do what it takes and always represent the Steelers in a rather Gold light... playing throught that was tough, a lesser player would have sat out!

How many years left on his contract?

When he retires as the greatest Steeler reciver ever, i hope they make him part of the coaching staff.

Wards first catch and run was something. It may have changed how the cardinals expected to play him for the rest of the game.

I say the same thing. Ward made them play him after that first catch. Had Ward been Healthy I think he would have made even more of an impact. Ward is what the Heart and Soul the Steelers are made of.

This guy means so much to the Team and that is why we kept him and let Plexico go.

Ward is so tough.You could rip one of his legs off and he would still be hopping on the field.....tis but a scratch my friend!

This is why I love Hines, and Ben for that matter. Look at them both out on the field, in pain, to do what they love, for their team, their franchise, the love of the game, and their fans...

I mean I guess a hurt pinky is truly very serious... Romo was probably right to stay out for so many games... [insert sarcasm smile]

What a Warrior, means so much to this team for him to go to battle with them like he did
