Hines Ward is "Highly Unlikely" to Play Sunday
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Hines Ward is listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the Patriots, but NFL Network's Albert Breer tweeted that it is "highly unilikely" that Ward will play. Ward sprained his ankle last week against the Cardinals and left the game on a cart.
If Ward is not able to play, WR Emmanuel Sanders will get the start instead. Sanders has 13 catches for 173 yards and two touchdowns this season, including five catches for 46 yards and a score last week.
