Hines Ward Injury Update: Steelers WR Suffers Concussion-Like Symptoms

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward has struggled with injuries in recent weeks and suffered yet another on Sunday. The Steelers receiver suffered concussion-like symptoms in the first quarter against the Baltimore Ravens after taking a big hit from linebacker Ray Lewis.

Ward has been dealing with ankle issues in recent weeks and missed last week's contest against the New England Patriots. The injuries have accelerated the process in which Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders have both started to move past Ward on the depth chart. Brown has made a firm move past him, with Emmanuel Sanders just about there as well.

The Steelers travel to face their co-AFC North leaders the Cincinnati Bengals in an unexpected battle for divisional supremacy. Given Ward's injuries he will likely be sidelined, although it is possible he could make a quick recovery. We'll keep an eye on him in the upcoming practice participation reports.
