As someone who hates zombies and the Steelers, this picture that surfaced of Hines Ward zombiefied for an episode of The Walking Dead is just plain gross.

Ward will play an extra on AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead when it returns on February 10th and told the :

“It was an amazing experience. Just being in makeup preparing me for my role was cool. I actually scared myself when I looked in the mirror for the first time after. I had a blast doing it.”

Surely Ward will get kudos for having that same grin football fans are used to seeing from throughout the years even as a zombie, right?

Probably not.  Ew.
