LATROBE, Pa. -- Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward addressed the media for the first time since being arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.

Similar to teammates James Harrison, Ward says he doesn't feel his situation will cause a distraction with the reigning AFC champs.

"My teammates haven't said anything about it," Ward said. "We're moving on. We're trying to win Super Bowls. I don't think my teammates are worried about my incident. They care for me as a brother, but I don't think this is going to be a distraction."

Ward is currently on the physically unable to perform list due to a thumb injury. He's expected to miss a couple of weeks of training camp, which actually may be a plus for the 35-year-old veteran.

The receiver didn't want to give any specifics about the case but says he will have his say in court.

"I just got to leave it into my attorney's hands," Ward explained. "But I'm confident in the end everything will work out, everything will be fine."
