    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.

    Having been hospitalized myself for burns, I hope for a full recovery for Coach Wilson.

    In a related thought, I also hope that Redman runs like his *** is on fire on Sunday.

    Wow the hits just keep on coming for this team. This one though clearly affecting life outside of football! Hopefully he's able to recover quickly.

    Not that the Steelers need motivation, but I sure this helps them absolutely blast the Broncos out of the building so Ben and some starters are out of the game by halftime.

    Update on Kirby Wilson





    Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson was badly burned in a Seven Fields townhouse fire early this morning.


    Firefighters went 141 Jameson Way at 2:42 a.m. and saw smoke and flames from the street. They found Mr. Wilson, 50, burned "severely," according to a written statement from Jeffrey Schueler, director of public safety in nearby Cranberry.


    Mr. Wilson went first to UPMC Cranberry and then to UPMC Mercy for treatment, according to the statement, which offered no detail about his condition.
    A team source said Wilson has burns on 30 percent to 50 percent of his body, and the injuries are considered serious but not life threatening. No one else was in the house, the source said.


    Firefighters from Adams Area Fire District, Cranberry, Callery, Harmony, Zelienople, and South Butler extinguished the fire.

    Personal life first, football second, but I agree this should make them want to play harder..
