Hamstring keeps Steelers’ Ward out of practice

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said earlier this week that WR Hines Ward was “very questionable” for the upcoming game against the Browns, and on Tuesday the team’s leading receiver was held out of practice. It’s another sign Ward, who has a strained hamstring, will likely be unable to play against the Browns on a short week of rest.

Although he was believed to have suffered a concussion in last week’s loss to the Raiders, CB William Gay participated in full practice. Backup QB Charlie Batch (wrist) also took part in the full session, while RB Rashard Mendenhall was listed as taking part in a limited portion.

The Browns listed 15 players on Tuesday’s injury report, holding out FB Lawrence Vickers (hamstring) and CB Eric Wright (hamstring) from practice. Three other starters — DE Robaire Smith (shoulder), LB Kamerion Wimbley (knee) and RB Jerome Harrison (illness) — were listed as limited.
