Steelers rested, ready to get back to work

Strange but true: Hines Ward actually wanted to go to work on a Monday morning.

"I missed football," the Steelers' wide receiver said.

The Steelers practiced yesterday for the first time in more than a week. Coach Mike Tomlin gave most of the players last week off since the Steelers had a bye. The only ones who had to report were practice squad players and rookies.

"It gave guys a chance to go home and just get away from football," Ward said.

It also gave some of them extra time to recover.

Troy Polamalu said his sprained left knee "feels much better." The strong safety added that he hopes to practice later this week.

Polamalu has played in the Steelers' past two games, but he has been limited in practice since returning from the injury he sustained in the season opener.

Polamalu did not practice yesterday. Defensive end Travis Kirschke (lower leg) and outside linebacker Lawrence Timmons (ankle) also didn't practice.

Tomlin said the two are questionable for the Steelers' game Monday at Denver.
