Hines Ward says the hit he took Sunday night from Patriots safety James Sanders was a clean hit from his point of view. “It was clean, I think. It was helmet to helmet, though. His helmet hit my helmet on the side. I don\’t know what the league wants. It was a good hit as far as I remember and I remember everything.”
Ward said he will play Sunday against the visiting Oakland Raiders despite being held out by the team doctors Sunday night.
