Default Ward out Sunday

As pretty much expected...

Steelers' Ward won't play against Arizona on Sunday
Friday, September 28, 2007
By Bob Smizik, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward will not play against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday.

Ward, who injured his knee against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, has missed only three games in his 10-year NFL career.

He missed his first game in 2005 with a hamstring injury, ending a streak of games played at 116 and games started at 83. He missed two games last December because of a hyperextended knee.

Tight end Matt Spaeth and cornerback Ricardo Colclough were officially listed as doubtful. Neither practiced today and both said they do not expect to play.

Center Sean Mahan and tackle Trai Essex, who had been injured earlier in the week, practiced and will be available Sunday.

I hate to see him hurt.......but better he rests and heals completely. Our schedule only gets tougher and Ben will need all the targets he can find.....not to mention Ward's blocking ability.

Why is Colclough doubtful? Is he auditioning for the role of overpaid sideline sweatsuit model/cheerleader now that Duce is gone? Not that he'd be much help anyway. How that guy is still on the roster is beyond me.

That's my thoughts. It is time to see if we truly have a legitimate person that can step into the number 2 role when Santo become the primary receiver.

Several observations

Need to let Ward heal - IMO if they win Sunday he may sit out Seattle to rest through the bye week

I assume Reid dresses - may be one of his last shots to show Tomlin he provides some value

As for Coclough's "injury," that is about as signifiacnt to our chances on Sunday as Steeley McBeam missing practice

Glad to read Mahan practiced but wonder what is up with Spaeth's injury.
