Steelers Coach Bill Cowher said this morning that Hines Ward will not play Friday in Philadelphia in the third preseason game.

Ward tried over the past two days to practice for the first time in two weeks, but he had to leave early both times because his injured hamstring continues to give him problems.

"We're going to err on the side of caution," Cowher said. "I'm encouraged by his progress even though he's going slow. We have to be patient."

Cowher also revealed that cornerback Deshea Townsend will not play Friday because he has a broken right thumb. Cowher said he apparently broke it when he interecepted a ball in practice yesterday. Cowher could not say whether Townsend will be ready to play for the Sept. 7 opener against Miami. The coach also said no. 2 tight end Jerame Tuman (hamstring) will not play against the Eagles.

September 7 and beyond is all that matters.
That's exactly right. People forget that last season, the Steelers were 2-2 in the preseason and there were all kinds of questions about the offense going into the regular season. Ben didn't look good, the OL was a sieve for the most part, Hines was a holdout, then promptly injured a hammy soon after he came back, the defense wasn't playing well. But what happened at the end of the season? They brought home the Lombardi, proving that it doesn't matter what you do at the beginning - it's what you do at the end.

Steelers Notebook: Ward still eyes brief preseason exposure
Friday, August 25, 2006

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Hines Ward missed one regular-season game in his first eight seasons. Tonight, he will miss his third exhibition game when the Steelers play in Philadelphia, and he might miss the game Thursday against Carolina, too.

He's hurt, frustrated, antsy to get back on a practice field and into a game, but he will settle for a return Sept. 7, when the Steelers open the season against Miami at Heinz Field.

"It's still disappointing, coming off a Super Bowl year and Super Bowl MVP, to come back in training camp and only getting a week's worth of practice," said Ward, his injured right hamstring packed in ice. "It's frustrating. I would have liked to have been out there competing and feeling good, but my job now is to get healthy. If I get healthy and get ready for that opener against Miami, that's the main thing."

Second-year pro Nate Washington, who caught one pass as a rookie all last season (in the AFC championship game), will make his third consecutive start in place of Ward at flanker. Coach Bill Cowher won't play his starters long Thursday against the Panthers, not with the opener the following Thursday night. It's possible some might not play at all in the exhibition finale, although there's one who still wants to do so.

"I'd like to get at least a series," Ward said. "I will lobby for it, but, at the same time, coach knows what's best for his team. I would like to get hit around before I go into the regular season and actually go into a full game without having playing time in the preseason.

"But, if I'm not 100 percent, I won't push it."
