    Hines listed as questionable...

    Testing his injured hamstring, Hines Ward went through a full practice for the first time since Aug. 4. The injury kept Ward from playing in any of the four exhibition games. Although Ward is listed as questionable for Thursday's opener against the Miami Dolphins, coach Bill Cowher is encouraged by the progress his top receiver is making.
    "He seemed pretty good at the end (of practice)," Cowher said.

    • Like Ward, tight end Jerame Tuman is questionable for the opener with a hamstring injury. Unlike Ward, Tuman did not practice. Backup center Chukky Okobi also did not dress because of a knee injury.

    • Two days after being acquired from the New England Patriots, rookie running back Patrick Cobbs participated in his first workout with the Steelers.

    • Three members of the 2006 draft class that were released Saturday were among eight players added to the practice squad yesterday. They were defensive end Orien Harris (4a), quarterback Omar Jacobs (5a) and running back Cedric Humes (7th round). The only 2006 draft pick not on the 53-man roster or practice squad is tight end Charles Davis (5b). Also added to the practice squad were tight end Jon Dekker, fullback John Kuhn, cornerback Anthony Madison, defensive end Shaun Nua and tackle Brandon Torrey.
    I sure hope he's recovered because if he goes out and plays and tweaks it again it could be weeks before he is ready to return...if he's not 100% he needs to sit. As much as I want Hines in the game for us, hamstrings can linger on for months if they aren't healed properly.

    I agree 100% Matt. I think he will play though.

    I've heard he's been practicing pretty well and without much pain and injury so that;s a good sign.
    :: Whoa, where the hell was I for 2 years?::

    I think he's going to play too although I don't know how much action he'll see. He'll start but I'd probably look for him to come out of the game every few plays so the coaches can check that hamstring.

    We need Hines healthy for the year not just this game so I hope they don't push it.

    The Steelers regular season isn't getting off on the right foot! They made it through training camp and now it's hitting the ceiling!

    Considering Ben won't be playing, it would be a real plus to see Ward on the field because he is always a spark. But if both Ben and Ward don't play we are going to need see something special from both Batch and Washington! The good thing is it's only the first game of the season.

    I think the fact that Ben is out will put some undue pressure on Hines to be in; but I have to agree that I'd rather have him sit out one more to be on the safe side rather than risk losing him for several games in the beginning of the season.

    Wishing him and Ben all the best with full and quick recoveries.

    Here is the latest on Ward:

    "You know I'm not missing this game. Yes, I will be playing."

    Said Cowher, "He's making good progress."
