Default Running Back coach: Kirby Wilson burned in fire. Life-flighted

Just heard on BREAKING NEWS 2 seconds ago on KDKA Pittsburgh news that early this morning, Running Backs Coach Kirby Wilson is fighting for his life and has severe burns due to getting caught in a fire. He was life-flighted and have serious burns. Steelers Nation, thoughts go out to the Kirby family at this time.

man, oh man........seemingly everyone on the team is hobbled, crippled and getting injured....now one of our coaches gets burned bad.
Hope he can recover, it doesn't look good. Best of luck to him.

Wow that's horrible. Burns are one of the most painful things to deal with, the pain is horrible, the smell is horrible, and the survival rate is low, churns my stomach just thinking about it. God be with you Kirby, our prayers will be!

Football is so secondary in a case like this, but in all seriousness, it's like somebody has put a curse on this team.

Prayers to coach Wilson and his family

The hits just keep on coming with this latest incident - a reminder that as much as we have emotionally invested in the Steelers there are much more important matters in life than winning or losing a game

Sucks.

Glad he's going to be ok.
Depending on the severity of the burns he's going to go through a lot of pain (besides the obvious) with all the scrub brushing of the burns.
