Hines Ward appeared to be fine today when he reported to the Steelers training facility late this morning. He walked without a limp and, in his own words, said he was "fine.''
"I'm trying to maintain,'' Ward said.
Ward was hit twice hard near the goal line on two incomplete passes in the third period of the Steelers 37-16 victory over San Francisco in Heinz Field yesterday.
On one, he took a helmet to the knee and eventually left the game for good. Coach Mike Tomlin said a preliminary diagnosis was a bone bruise and that appears to be precisely what Ward has. An MRI showed no tears in his knee.
It's still not determined whether Ward will play in Arizona Sunday.
