The Steelers are reeling after a loss at home to the hapless Raiders, on the heels of a division heart breaker against the Ravens. Now it appears that Ben Roethlisberger will be without his #1 target on Thursday in Cleveland when opposing the Browns. Hines Ward, critical of Big Ben two weeks ago for missing the Ravens game with a concussion, pulled a hamstring late in the Raider game and will likely sit out on Thursday as a result.
Taking Ward’s place will be Mike Wallace, with Limas Sweed in the slot. If you’re in dire need of receptions Sweed might be a long shot waiver wire pick-up.
Either way Ward should return Week 15 at home against the Packers.
