Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward appears to be a longshot to play in the Steelers' 8:20 p.m. game Thursday at Cleveland.
Ward sustained a mild hamstring pull near the end of Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Oakland Raiders. The short week for the Steelers does not bode well for the 12th-year veteran playing against the Browns.
"Not favorable for him," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.
