Hines Ward Update
ESPN.com reports Pittsburgh Steelers WR Hines Ward (knee) suffered a slightly sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee during the AFC Championship game. Ward, however, is expected to be ready for the Super Bowl, the team said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Coach Mike Tomlin said during his press conference on Tuesday (1/20/09) that he believes Ward (knee sprain) will play in the Super Bowl.
Tomlin said the Steelers will do everything possible to give him the medical attention he needs. "It's not going to be comfortable between now and gameday," Tomlin said of Ward's injury. "But it's not about comfort, particularly for Hines...we're definitely not going to count him out. We're going to save a seat on the bus for No. 86.
Now that is some good news for Steelers' fans!
