Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward had surgery today to repair a broken nose, but it isn't expected to prevent him from playing in the Sept. 9 opener at Cleveland.

Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that he hasn't ruled Ward out of Thursday night's exhibition game at Carolina, when the starters are expected to play one quarter.

"Hines is Hines. I wouldn't count Hines out," Tomlin said of the Steelers' career leader in receptions. "He's a player-coach in my mind. He's not a guy you need to worry about being up at game time."

Ward apparently sustained the injury during Pittsburgh's 27-13 victory over the Eagles on Sunday night. Ward did not disclose the injury after the game, when he talked to reporters at length with no apparent pain.

First step to be being a leader... not complaining about a broken nose and going out and playing and doing your job! :cope:

That sucks, Although he is as tough as they come, this will hamper him a bit

Can't help thinking about the fight scene from "Rocky"

Mick: "Your nose is broken."

Rocky: "How's it look?"

Mick: "It's an improvement."

If there ever was one offensive player in the modern age who epitomized the Steeler mentality - its Hines Ward - Nuff Said!!

P.S. - How does that lingering knee injury feel now Bus!!
