Hines Ward may have hurt his knee more by playing in the Super Bowl, not that he wouldn't trade a trip to the surgeon for another Super Bowl ring.
Ward told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that he'll have to see if he further damaged his medial collateral ligament by playing in the Super Bowl, and he thinks he may have to have arthoscopic surgery to fix the ligament.
The good news is that with more than six months until training camp, Ward has plenty of time to heal. Eventually Ward's recurring knee injuries may end his career, but as she showed in the Super Bowl, even at less than 100 percent, he's still a pretty valuable guy out on the field. Ward was not effective in the passing game as the game wore on, but he was still a dominating blocker and a pretty good decoy.
