TAMPA, Fla. -- It was a wild and crazy Super Bowl Tuesday in the NFL.

Here are a few additional notes from the Pittsburgh Steelers' camp:

  Hines Ward believes the warm temperatures in Tampa have helped heal his sprained knee faster.

"You walk by and you see the five Lombardi Trophies sitting in the office, and you know it's a great pride that goes along with putting on the black and gold uniform," Steelers receiver Hines Ward said. "Being here and getting a chance to be the first team in NFL to win six championships has a special meaning."

"Oh yeah, we all miss him," Steelers safety Troy Polamalu said. "What's really great about the fraternity of brothers that we have here is, if they go to a different team or a different city, their heart is still here. A lot of guys still talk to Joey."
