Hines Ward leaves on a cart


The Steelers might not have Hines Ward’s dancing feet to help them hold off the Cardinals for the rest of the second half.

Ward was carted off the field to the locker room in the third quarter of Sunday’s game in Arizona. He hurt one of his aforementioned feet on the team’s first offensive series of the third quarter, a series that ended with a pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Ward falling incomplete thanks to a good play by Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson.

Wilson hit Ward as he was trying to reel in the pass, although there’s no word on if the injury happened on that play.

The Cards cut the Steelers lead to 17-14 on a short pass from Kevin Kolb to LaRod Stephens-Howling that the scatback turned into a 73-yard touchdown.
