WARD IS QUESTIONABLE

The official NFL injury report is out, and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward is questionable with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee.
Although Ward hasn’t practiced all week after getting hurt in first half of the AFC title game against the Baltimore Ravens, he has guaranteed he will play in the Super Bowl against the Arizona Cardinals.
Meanwhile, Cardinals running back J.J. Arrington missed a second consecutive practice with a right knee injury and is listed as questionable. Arrington is “optimistic” about practicing next week and playing in the game. 
Cardinals hybrid defensive end/outside linebacker Travis LaBoy is dealing with a left biceps tendon injury and is hoping to test out a specially-designed brace as soon as Saturday.
Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin (hamstring) has participated fully in practice this week and has been designated as probable. 
The Cardinals listed punter Ben Graham (groin) and defensive end Antonio Smith (knee) are questionable, but aren’t expected to miss the game.
Steelers linebacker Patrick Bailey (hamstring) is questionable. 
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (back), center Justin Hartwig (knee), offensive tackle Max Starks (knee), running back Mewelde Moore (ankle) and linebacker Lawrence Timmons (illness) are all listed as probable.
Meanwhile, Arizona Republic beat writer Kent Somers reports that Philadelphia Eagles safety Quintin Demps and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley were fined $7,500 and $5,000 by the league office, respectively, for late hits on quarterback Kurt Warner in the NFC title game.

  1. Please oh football gods, please let him miss the game. Watching Sweed drop passes on Superbowl Sunday as the Cardinals win their first Superbowl would be a great reward for the millions of Steeler haters.

  2. If Hines Ward is questionable for the Super Bowl, does that mean he also has a 50/50 chance of skipping, (which was done in the last Steeler’s Super Bowl appearance), during the game?

    Whether he will cheapshot someone in the game is not in question

    Doubt he could do worse than what your boy Demps did to Warner.
    By the way, now that the Steelers have won the right to lose to the Eagles in the Bowl, how bad will the score be?

    Ok, I understand the fine for Demps because that was a late hit/cheap shot and he deserves to get fined. What I don’t understand is why Bunk was fined. Maybe I didn’t see that particular play(I was hammered during the game) but I also didn’t hear ANYONE talking about it. I’d like to see the replay.
    My birthday is coming up and I have one wish:
    Boldin or Housh to Philly!!
