Hines Ward Has Surgery

February 10, 2009

The Post-Gazette is reporting that Hines Ward has had surgery on his shoulder, not his knee as was expected. Hines had surgery to “clean up” his shoulder and will be available for the start of the 2009 season.

Could this be another nail in Hines’ career coffin? While he had his best season in 5 years in 2008 it was clear in the playoffs that Santonio Holmes has taken over the roll of big time receiver for the Steelers. While Hines still plays a big part in the offense, he’s getting up there in age. The more wear and tear he puts on his body (like say a knee injury or shoulder surgery) the less effective he’s bound to be in future seasons.
