Good news, it's great to see him able to get around again. This young group of backs we have can use all the coaching they can get in the offseason.

Pittsburgh Steelers (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/pit/pittsburgh-steelers) running backs coach Kirby Wilson made his first visit to the team's facility Wednesday since he was severely burned in a fire only days before Pittsburgh's wild-card game against the Denver Broncos (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/den/denver-broncos), according to a report in the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette.

ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley writes about all things AFC North in his division blog (http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth).

According to the Post-Gazette, the Steelers greeted Wilson with cake in a team meeting room. The 50-year-old Wilson was using a cane to walk around, the paper said.
He is planning to officially return to work by the end of April, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Wednesday.
