    Steelers Kirby Wilson hospitalized with severe burns.....Update: Tomlin expects him to coach in 2012

    Just got a tweet he was severely burned in a house fire, he's the Steelers RB coach.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) – Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson has been hospitalized after sustaining burns to his arms and legs in a house fire early Friday morning.

    Authorities say the fire broke out around 3 a.m. in Wilson's home in Seven Fields, a northern Pittsburgh suburb. Firefighters told borough manager Tom Smith the blaze started in the kitchen and Wilson suffered "moderate to severe" burns.
    Wilson, 50, was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital for treatment. He will not travel with the team for Sunday's wild card game in Denver. Wilson is in his fifth season as running backs coach, joining the staff when head coach Mike Tomlin was hired in 2007.
    Steelers president Art Rooney II says he is saddened by the incident and the organization is praying for a full recovery.
