Scott Brown reports via Twitter this afternoon that Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians told the media today that wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders might sit out the Thursday night game against the Cleveland Browns because his knee is still not 100%.
Sanders had minor knee surgery back in early November and he missed the game against Baltimore Ravens in week 9 and the first meeting against the Cincinnati Bengals the week after. Sanders returned to action against the Kansas City Chiefs following the bye week and played again this past Sunday against the Bengals.
Arians also said that right guard Ramon Foster could play Thursday night against the Browns after suffering a sprained left ankle last week against the Bengals. The injury forced Foster from the game and he did not return. Foster was replaced at right guard by Trai Essex for the remainder of the game. Foster reportedly worked today.
We will have the Steelers full Tuesday injury report up shortly.
