While the Steelers’ offense is on the field, WR Hines Ward is strolling the sidelines with a black parka over his shoulders — not a good sign for Pittsburgh.
Ward exited the AFC Championship Game during the first quarter with an apparent right leg injury, and after briefly re-entering during the second quarter, he’s on the sidelines again.
The Steelers have yet to make an announcement as to Ward’s injury, but the CBS game broadcast announced that he’s questionable to return. With the game several minutes from halftime, we’ll have more on his status later.
Ravens CB Frank Walker also left the game late in the second quarter. Walker was just seen walking down the tunnel with team personnel, who were holding his left arm in place to avoid movement. That’s typically an indication of a shoulder injury.
Walker started against the Steelers as an injury replacement for Samari Rolle, who was deactivated because of a groin injury.
