Steelers Injury Report: Sanders Has A Lateral Meniscus Injury; Wheaton Fractured A Finger
During his Monday press conference following the Sunday win over the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin updated the injury situation heading into Week 17.
According to Tomlin, linebacker Terence Garvin (knee) has a knee sprain that will have him questionable for the Sunday game against the Cleveland Browns. They’ll see how much he’ll be able to participate and they will leave the light on him for now.
Linebacker Jarvis Jones (illness) is looking better on Monday after being forced to miss the Packers game because of the flu.
Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee) has a lateral meniscus injury that will make him questionable for the Browns game as well. Like Garvin, there is more optimism with him than was initially anticipated.
Wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) suffered a fractured finger during the game. That will be splinted and taped to another one beside it, according to Tomlin.
Linebacker Jason Worilds (abdominal) suffered an abdominal injury against the Packers that could slow him during the early portions of the week. They will see how he pushes through that.
