PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward has been ruled out of Sunday's game at Arizona because of a sprained right knee.
Ward, a four-time Pro Bowl receiver, has missed only three games to injury in his 10-season NFL career. He sat out two games last December because of a hyperextended knee, and missed a 2005 game that ended a streak of consecutive games played at 116.
Rookie tight end Matt Spaeth (bruised quadriceps) and cornerback Ricardo Colclough (back) are listed as doubtful.
