Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson, who was burned over 30 to 50 percent of his body during a house fire earlier this month, remains in critical condition in a Pittsburgh hospital.

The family released an update on his status on Tuesday:

“Mr. Kirby Wilson remains in critical condition in the Trauma Burn Center at UPMC Mercy in Pittsburgh. In addition to burns sustained over 45 percent of his body, he has suffered a smoke inhalation injury and will require multiple operative procedures in the future.”

As the Steelers official website notes, “Wilson is known by all who work for the Steelers as a man with a ready smile and a pleasant demeanor regardless of the circumstances. As a coach, he is known to his players as a tireless worker and a high-energy guy who is demanding yet fair.”
