Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders participated in the team’s practice on Friday, and is listed as questionable for week 17. It has been announced that he will be a game-time decision.

From ESPN,

“Right now I’m 50-50,” said Sanders, who sprained his knee last Sunday while making a cut on the muddy turf at Lambeau Field. “I practiced today and the pain was bearable.”

Sanders said he will play Sunday if he can’t make the injury any worse.

“I’ve always played through injuries no matter what,” said Sanders, who has played in every game this season and caught 65 passes for 714 yards and six touchdowns. “I’m not going to hold anything back, and that’s always been my mentality.

Sanders is going to become an unrestricted free agent when the season is over, so this could very well be his last game wearing black and yellow. Among other notable Steelers injuries,

Outside linebacker Jason Worilds (abdomen) is listed as questionable for the 1 p.m. ET game against the visiting Browns. Linebacker Terence Garvin (knee) is the only Steelers player who has been ruled out for the regular-season finale at Heinz Field.
