LOS ANGELES (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and “Dancing With the Stars” contestant Hines Ward was briefly detained at gunpoint Thursday in a mix-up over a reported stolen car, but he was released without being arrested, police said.
DALLAS (AP) — Instead of focusing on the eight Super Bowl trips and six Lombardi trophies, Steelers defensive line coach John Mitchell likes to talk about these numbers: four and nine.
That’s four players he’s coached on the Pittsburgh roster for nine or more seasons.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Casey Hampton is listed at 325 pounds. The way his jersey stretches tautly across his biceps (and belly) suggests the real number is north of that. Asked for his actual weight, the Steelers nose tackle says, “It’s 300 and change. Lots of change.”
Hampton is one of 26 players on the Green Bay and Pittsburgh Super Bowl rosters who tip the scale at more than 300 pounds — an eye-popping number made even more startling when you put it in historical context.
DALLAS (AP) — Now that the voters have chosen Troy Polamalu over Clay Matthews for The Associated Press 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award, the two stars can prove their worth against each other on the field.

Pittsburgh safety Polamalu received 17 votes Monday from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who cover the league, edging Green Bay linebacker Matthews by a hair — two votes.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger showed off Pittsburgh’s deep passing game and the Steelers inched closer to a division title and a first-round playoff bye, beating the Carolina Panthers 27-3 on Thursday night.
Ben Roethlisberger will line up under center, take the snap and throw his first pass to a teammate since the Steelers ended the season Jan. 3.
There won’t be any applause.
There likely won’t be much reaction from his teammates, who have seen the highest-paid player in franchise history go through this routine countless times in games and practices since 2004.
There will be countless questions.
The young woman who accused Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault said she tried to get away from the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and told him “no, this is not OK,” according to police documents released Thursday.
The NFL is weighing possible disciplinary action against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who met with league commissioner Roger Goodell one day after learning he won’t be charged in the alleged sexual assault of a Georgia college student.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who won’t face criminal charges after a 20-year-old college student accused him of sexually assaulting her inside a nightclub’s bathroom, said Monday he knows he’ll have to work to regain the trust of teammates and fans.
