During the Pittsburgh Steelers big win over the Detroit Lions in Week 11, they watched wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders leave the game early. Sanders left the game with a foot injury and was unable to return, but he seems that he will be able to suit up for the team this weekend against the Cleveland Browns.
As the Steelers returned to practice to prepare for their AFC North rivals, Sanders was able to take the field in full.
Barring a setback, Sanders will be able to go.
Starting wide receiver Antonio Brown will draw the most attention from the Browns secondary, which will allow Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery to take advantage of mismatches as the Steelers offense looks to keep on rolling.
Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers passing attack was on fire against the Lions secondary, so they want to keep that success as they charge towards the top of the AFC North and work their way into the AFC Wild Card picture.
Postseason hopes for the Steelers didn’t look too good a few weeks ago, but another win could set them up in great position.
