Running Back Coach Kirby Wilson Burned Badly in Morning Fire at Home

Steelers running back Kirby Wilson was badly burned in an early morning house fire in Seven Fields, Pennsylvania. According reports, Wilson was flown to a Pittsburgh-area hospital.

Steelers president Art Rooney II has issued the following statement:

“First and foremost our thoughts and prayers are with Kirby and his entire family. We are saddened to hear about this unfortunate situation but we know that he has the best medical care in the country treating him. The entire organization is praying for Kirby to have a full recovery and we will be by his side through this difficult time.”
