Default Ward: "It's just a Sprained Knee"

Moderators, you may need to merge this thread. I just thought it would be helpful.

AFC NOTEBOOK
Ward takes the cautious route
He doesn't return after knee injury
By Mike Reiss, Globe Staff | January 19, 2009


PITTSBURGH - Steelers receiver Hines Ward left last night's AFC Championship game in the first quarter with a right knee injury and didn't return, but he said he doesn't envision the injury keeping him out of Super Bowl XLIII.

"I will play," Ward said in the victorious locker room. "I'll be there - through, rain, sleet, or snow."

Ward expects to undergo an MRI this week and indicated that he could have returned to last night's physical battle against the Ravens.

"It's just a sprained knee," he said. "They said it's nothing structurally. I was going to come back, but I didn't want to come back at 75 or 80 percent. It gave an opportunity for other guys to step up and they did that."

On facing the Cardinals, whom oddsmakers have made early 6 1/2-point underdogs, Ward said, "Kurt Warner, I think, is really a difference-maker for that team. I think he's found his niche there. He's playing phenomenal and it doesn't hurt when you have the greatest wideout in the league today, [Larry] Fitzgerald, to bail you out on some of the plays. And they're playing great team defense. It's going to be a tough matchup, for both teams."


Good to know he will be there "through rain, sleet or snow." I know sleet and snow is common in Tampa.

It's easy to laugh at it because Hines is going to be OK!

I am a huge Hines Ward fan and he can come relax at my house when he arrives in Tampa if he wants to.

I pray he heals before the big game. Nothing can stop Hines!

HERE WE GO STEELERS.

He's not allowed anywhere near my house. My wife talks about how cute he is a little too much.

i would rather it have been a sprain of his ACL in his left knee instead of anything being wrong with his right knee.

anyone know why?

I'll take a guess and say that it's because that's his plant leg, since he is right handed.
