Default Ward is fine

Steelers' Ward says he's fine; MRI shows no knee tears
Monday, September 24, 2007
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Hines Ward appeared to be fine today when he reported to the Steelers training facility late this morning. He walked without a limp and, in his own words, said he was "fine.''

"I'm trying to maintain,'' Ward said.

Ward was hit twice hard near the goal line on two incomplete passes in the third period of the Steelers 37-16 victory over San Francisco in Heinz Field yesterday.

On one, he took a helmet to the knee and eventually left the game for good. Coach Mike Tomlin said a preliminary diagnosis was a bone bruise and that appears to be precisely what Ward has. An MRI showed no tears in his knee.

It's still not determined whether Ward will play in Arizona Sunday.

Heard that earlier on ESPN radio and breathed a huge sigh of releif. Hopefully he rests it this week and will be good to go against AZ.

Any word on what the MRI showed other than no knee tears?

The fact he was not on crutches after the game made me hopeful it was not too bad after Ben put him harm's way with that second throw across the middle.

Hopefully TD machine Spaeth will return to action and pick up the slack next week.

I have this sneaking suspicion that we are watching the passing of the baton this season, as Ward transitions from #1 to #2. Of course he'll still show up #1 on depth charts and everything, but I think Holmes is really ready to emerge. Yesterday was a great lesson for Santonio on press coverage, and he made a couple clutch catches late in the game.
