Emmanuel Sanders on track to play for Steelers on Sunday

Sunday’s win over the Lions happened despite the departure of Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders.  In two days, the Steelers most likely will have Sanders back when they travel to Cleveland to face the Browns.

Sanders fully participated in practice all week with the foot injury, and he is officially listed as probable for Sunday.

“Probable” means that Sanders is a virtual certainty to be available for normal duty.

Also probable for the Steelers are guard Ramon Foster (ankle), center Fernando Velasco (center), tackle Kelvin Beachum (hip), and tight end Heath Miller (not injury related).

Questionable are linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) and defensive end Brett Keisel (foot).  Safety Shamarko Thomas (ankle) and linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) are out.

For the season, Sanders has 42 catches for 509 yards and two touchdowns.  He’s due to become a free agent in March.

The Steelers and Browns are each 4-6, which is good enough to be very much alive for a playoff berth.

    Should have taken the 3rd round pick they could have gotten for him earlier this year…

    as a Steelers fan I really couldn’t care if Sanders is going to play or not, the way he’s played all season we would have been better off to let him go to the patriots and get the draft picks. We have better receivers on the team who need playing time anyways.

    The Steelers should have taken the draft pick from the Patriots and let Sanders go…….

    Dude is never open anymore.

    I agree steelers should have taken a 3rd round pick for this guy. He’s always hurt and drops balls. He will be shocked but no big money contract coming his way next year.
