Around The AFC North: Super Bowl Will Not Be Hines Ward's Final Game

New, comments

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward has been rumored to be entertaining retirement after Super Bowl XLV. After the team arrived in Dallas on Monday, Ward met with the press and addressed to address it.

"Whenever that time comes, trust me, I'll let you guys know," said Ward, who arrived in Texas wearing a cowboy hat and belt buckle. "I don't foresee this being my last game."

There has to be some level of relief going on Southern California right now. Because it allows Keith Rivers to more time to plan for when the opportunity comes to pay the wide receiver back. A broken jaw definitely deserves first degree, well-thought out payback. He's a patient cat, Rivers is.

Rivers finished the season with 85 tackles, playing much of the year with plantar fasciitis, which is:

...one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, which runs across the bottom of your foot — connecting your heel bone to your toes.

Plantar fasciitis causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your very first steps in the morning. Once your foot limbers up, the pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position.
