Hines Misses First Super Bowl Practice; Tomlin Talks On the Session

In an expected move, Steelers WR Hines Ward sat out practice on Wednesday, resting his injured MCL that has been a huge topic at the Super Bowl in Tampa this week. Ward today wore a small black brace on his hurt right knee, and he’s even stated that he may wear the brace in the game.

Mike Tomlin had said that Ward wouldn’t practice on Wednesday, as he’s taken Wednesday’s off for most of the season, but he did say he should take the field on Thursday and thereafter as the team gets ready for the Cardinals Sunday in their efforts for a sixth NFL title.

Overall the team spent about two hours out in the sunny skies at practice, and Tomlin felt that the team had a pretty good session for their first workout of the week. “It was a good start to our week,” Tomlin said. “We practiced fast, and I thought we practiced aggressively. But it’s like I say to the team after every Wednesday practice: It’s a good start, but we’ve got to be better tomorrow.”
