Hines Ward sat out voluntary practice on Wednesday, as his strained hamstring suffered last month continues to hold him back.
“This is like touch football right now,” Ward said. “I can run, it’s just why am I in a hurry to come back to run a curl route?” Ward said. “It’s not good to come out here and re-injure it, so I’m not good (for) Latrobe (when training camp opens in July).”
For now, Ward is going to continue to take it easy, and that seems to be fine for Mike Tomlin, knowing that come opening day, the veteran wide out will be ready to go. “I still have 3-4 weeks left,” Ward said about the final voluntary workouts, which conclude June 10.
