Ward practices; Steelers release Palko, promote receiver
Share with others:
Hines Ward practiced on a limited basis today and is being listed as questionable on the team's official injury report, leaving open the possibility he might play tomorrow night against the Cleveland Browns.
Nonetheless, the Steelers have promoted wide receiver Tyler Grisham from the practice squad and signed him to the 53-man roster. To make room for Grisham, an undrafted rookie from Clemson, the Steelers released former Pitt quarterback Tyler Palko.
Ward, the team's leading receiver with 72 catches and six touchdowns, has a mild hamstring injury that probably would allow him to play if the game were on Sunday.
