There has been quite a bit of sad news this week in Steeler Nation as we have seen several long time veteran players such as Hines Ward, Aaron Smith and James Farrior get released, but there is some positive news to report. Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Marcus Gilbert reported via Twitter today that he visited running backs coach Kirby Wilson in the hospital today and said that Wilson looks great, is walking and still smiling like always. Gilbert added that he should be out of the hospital soon as he recovers from burns and smoke inhalation suffered after his house caught fire early in January.
Doctors had to initially put Wilson in an induced coma because of his injuries and the pain, but the reports have been positive over the last several weeks. Wilson was hired by the Steelers in 2007.
Coach Wilson looks great, walking and still smiling like always! Should be out soon!
