Slipped disc to end Ward's Canaries career?
Ward, who has made only three senior appearances for the club, slipped a disc in the warm up for January's FA Cup Third Round tie with West Ham. He was later called into action after Robert Green suffered concussion.
The 31-year-old has not recovered as expected and will require an operation. With his contract set to expire in the summer, it could be the end of his Canaries career.
