I had a chance to talk to Mike Tomlin before his 60 minutes with the press at noon today. The only news of significance he told me was that Hines Ward will not practice on Wednesday, but will do some running when the Steelers begin their workouts at the University of South Florida.

Ward will be the story the whole week because of his strained right knee ligament and the fact that he didn't practice last week in Pittsburgh. But I don't expect him to be hampered much come game time Sunday. It's going to be one of those stories that's played up pretty big during the week, but once Sunday comes it will be forgotten because he'll show no ill effects from the injury he suffered in the AFC Championship Game. That's my gut feeling right now.

Tomlin seems loose. Every new thing he's seen as a 36-year-old head coach is treated exactly the same by him -- with a shrug of the shoulders and an attitude of, "If this is what's expected of me, I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it well and it's not going to detract from the real reason why I'm here."
