The Steelers have a playoff game in Denver Sunday, but the team’s thoughts may be elsewhere in the coming days.
Running backs coach Kirby Wilson, 50, was “badly burned” in a house fire early Friday morning according to Channel 11 in Pittsburgh. The cause of the fire is unknown.
“First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with Kirby and his entire family,” Steelers President Art Rooney said in a statement. “We are saddened to hear about this unfortunate situation but we know that he has the best medical care in the country treating him. The entire organization is praying for Kirby to have a full recovery and we will be by his side through this difficult time.”
We wish Wilson and his family all the best during this time and hope for a speedy recovery. Wilson is in his fifth year as Steelers running backs coach.
