Surgery for Steelers receivers

Turns out the injury Emmanuel Sanders suffered in Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl loss was very serious. The rookie wide receiver will have surgery this week to repair his broken foot. H. Ward (US Presswire)

Sanders isn’t the only wideout going under the knife. Hines Ward will have surgery on his left knee (which is already deprived of an ACL), as well as his left thumb. Presumably, the surgeries will take place at separate times. (If it were his right thumb, perhaps simultaneous surgeries would work. But figure with two left side issues, things would get too crowded for the doctors standing around the operating table…right?)

For the knee, Ward is addressing cartilage damage that has been bothersome since training camp. For the thumb, he’s correcting a torn ligament suffered in Week 2 against the Titans. Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says Ward’s thumb can bend all the way back past his wrist (which is why he wore a protective cast on it this season).

Bouchette points out that team doctors around the league, including Pittsburgh’s James Bradley, will be especially busy this month, as players scramble to get operated on before their insurance disappears as part of the looming March 4 lockout.

You can't fix a broken heart... owner.
Zing!!


Fixed it, Jerry Jones is a joke.
Stay on topic...This about the Steelers WR's...

All that money and one playoff win in 14 seasons.  LOL.
What do you mean, all that money? He's had a salary cap just like everybody else...

And what a grand stadium, how many law-suits from colapsing practice facilities and sliding ice?
I'm pretty sure that he can afford it...

  How about those 400 fans
Pretty sure he can afford that too..
