Steelers WR Hines Ward just sprinted onto the field and took a quick lap. He didn’t appear to be limited at all by the knee injury he suffered in the AFC Championship Game.
Steelers fans waved their Terrible Towels and cheered on Ward as he sprinted around. Steelers fans in the crowd said that this could be like a home game for the Black and Gold.
Ward stopped his run to hug former teammate Jerome Bettis, who was on the field talking with some players.
QB Kurt Warner took the field a few moments later and shared a hug with Ward. Warner is currently chatting with Tiki Barber and Bettis.
