Ward says he’ll go vs Raiders despite concussion

The Steelers offense did little all night vs the Pats till it was garbage time, and one reason was the loss of wide out Hines Ward with a concussion.

Ward says that despite the injury, he will go Sunday when the 6-3 Steelers host the 5-4 Oakland Raiders at Heinz Field.

Ward said he could have gone back in the game, but was prevented from doing so by the Steelers’ medical staff.

“I felt like I could have played but our (doctors) felt otherwise,” Ward said. “It’s my body. I feel like if I want to go back out there I should have the right. They saw me tripping over the grass and the league was going to make a big deal about it, them putting me back out there.”

Ward got hit in the first quarter following what looked to be a a five-yard reception, which was then ruled incomplete.

“I’m a competitor and I want to be out there, especially against the New England Patriots,” Ward said. “I worked my tail off all week to get in that position and I got dinged up.”

    Really a tough night for Steelers nation. I wouldn’t be surprised if we lost to the Raiders next week, a certain if we play that way next week. One thing is even more certain, it’s us against the world. The haters will hate, like this garbage:

    Makes me sick…
