Steelers' Ward questionable for Browns

PITTSBURGH (AP) -Wide receiver Hines Ward practiced lightly despite a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable for the Pittsburgh Steelers' game at Cleveland on Thursday night.

Earlier in the week, coach Mike Tomlin was pessimistic that Ward would play. Tyler Grisham was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster, giving the Steelers an extra wide receiver in case Ward can't play.

Cornerback William Gay, who sustained a concussion during the Steelers' 27-24 loss to the Raiders on Sunday, also practiced Wednesday but is listed as questionable.

Quarterback Tyler Palko was released. Charlie Batch will be the No. 3 quarterback in Cleveland as his broken left wrist continues to heal.
