I would certainly think so. After all, if they have placed him on IR, then he is entitled to his entire base salary, whereas an injury settlement is for something substantially less. So, what would Ward's motivation be to accept an injury settlement, and less money, once he has been put on IR (and entitled to his full salary)?!??

EDIT: Well, I guess he could accept the injury settlement if he felt he could catch on somewhere else and still play this season.
