This sucks. I was hoping sanders to have great year but injury bug has hit Sanders.

Steelers might have to sign a WR if Hines and Battle cant play against Bungles.

Ward- concussion, probably a go
Farrior- Q
Cotchery-knee, limited practice early in week

Hamstrings are tricky. Let Woodley sit this week and the bye and he'll have had a full month to heal by the time he plays again. I'd rather play it safe and have him down the stretch run for sure.

Steelers’ Sanders undergoes surgery; Ward expected to return

Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will not return to the lineup for Pittsburgh’s game against the Bengals this week because he underwent knee surgery, coach Mike Tomlin announced on Tuesday via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Sanders, who was starting to emerge as a third receiver, will be out a couple of weeks.

Tomlin does expect to have Hines Ward available against Cincinnati despite suffering concussion-like symptoms.

“Concussion-like symptoms” has sadly become code for “It’s a concussion but we want him to play.”

Tuesday with Tomlin

Mike Tomlin said today that Emmanuel Sanders had his knee scoped and will be out until after the bye.

Daniel Sepulveda also had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, but he's already been placed on injured reserve.

Hines Ward is OK after suffering from "concussion-like symptoms" following an illegal helmet-to-helmet hit by Ray Lewis that was not flagged during the game.

They'll watch Ward this week to determine his status for Sunday's game at Cincinnati.

LaMarr Woodley could possibly return this week, but there's a better chance James Farrior comes back.

If Farrior returns, Lawrence Timmons could be moved to left outside linebacker - where he lined up at times Sunday - with Farrior and Larry Foote inside.

Wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery is experiencing some swelling in his knee, but is expected to be OK.

Definately let WOODLEY heal and use the bye week. Hamstrings don't heal fast and they like to come back often.
Look at Peyton Hillis

Steelers' Sanders on shelf after knee surgery

Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders underwent surgery Monday on his injured knee and will be out "a couple weeks," according to coach Mike Tomlin. Sanders injured his knee against New England two weeks ago. He missed last week's game against Baltimore partly because of the death of his mother, along with his injured knee.

"Feeling better already ... be back before you know it," Sanders said on Twitter.

Sanders is having a solid season. He has 18 receptions for 243 yards and two touchdowns, mostly in the role of the third receiver.

>> The Steelers' wide receivers crew could be thin this week against Cincinnati. Hines Ward has concussion-like symptoms and a sprained ankle. Jerricho Cotchery (knee) and Arnaz Battle (hamstring) are also dealing with injuries suffered against the Ravens. That leaves the Steelers with two healthy receivers — Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown.

>> Also nursing injuries are linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (knee), linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring) and linebacker James Farrior (calf). Tomlin didn't rule out either Woodley's or Farrior's participation against the Bengals on Sunday.

>> Punter Daniel Sepulveda had surgery for a partial tear of his meniscus in his right knee yesterday. He was put on injured reserve last week.

>> Tomlin said that he wanted the punt team to try to draw the defense offside in order to pick up a first down late in Sunday's game that led to the Ravens' winning drive. But while trying to explain the situation to new punter Jeremy Kapinos, the play clock ran down and the Steelers took a delay of game penalty.

"We quite simply didn't get it lined up in time and wasn't interested in burning or utilizing a timeout," Tomlin said. "Those are things that happened particularly when you work with new people. I accept responsibility for that. I should've handed that cleaner, but I didn't."

Anyone lese getting concerned that Sanders may be "injury prone" and have a promising career derailed. First his foot and now his knee. A Wr can't have bad wheels and be successful.

I don't like this plan at all. Hopefully Worilds gets some time outside to allow Timmons to shift back to ILB for at least a portion of the game.

Steelers WRs Ward, Cotchery set for Week 10

By Scott Brown
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Friday, November 11, 2011


The Steelers' situation at receiver looks better Friday than it did earlier this week.

Hines Ward and Jerricho Cotchery practiced Thursday and are expected both to play Sunday in Cincinnati.

Ward was knocked out of last week's loss to the Baltimore Ravens with concussion-like symptoms. Cotchery didn't practice Wednesday because of a knee injury.

"They're getting better, and it looks like they're going to make it," Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said.

The Steelers don't have much margin for injury at the position.

Emmanuel Sanders recently had minor knee surgery and is expected to miss two to three weeks. Arnaz Battle, the special teams captain, has yet to practice because of a hamstring injury.

Ward is eager to return after missing all or part of the past two games with knee and head injuries.

The 14-year veteran left the Ravens game in the second quarter following a helmet-to-helmet hit by Ray Lewis. Ward lobbied to return, but the Steelers held him out as a precaution. Lewis was fined $20,000 for the hit.

When asked if it had been intentional, Ward shrugged.

"I tried to lunge backward to get the first down. I got hit in the back of the head. That's where you least expect it," he said. "It was helmet-to-helmet after seeing it. I was probably more shocked that Ryan (Clark) got fined because we as players thought it was a good hit."

Clark was fined $40,000 for unnecessary roughness for a hit on Ravens tight end Ed Dickson.

>> Outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley did not practice again because of a hamstring injury and likely will miss his second consecutive game. He said he is "day to day."

Strong safety Troy Polamalu did not practice for a second consecutive day because of a rib injury, but it is not believed to be serious.

Inside linebacker James Farrior remains on track to return from a two-game absence. Farrior (calf) has practiced both days this week. Inside linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (knee) returned to practice after sitting out Wednesday.

Outside linebacker James Harrison was limited in practice Thursday with a toe injury.

>> Guard/center Doug Legursky (toe) practiced for the second consecutive day. He is on track to return Sunday but not necessarily to the starting lineup.

Arians said the Steelers will stick with the starting five they have used for the past three games, with Chris Kemoeau and Ramon Foster at guard.

Legursky will serve as the top backup at center and guard.

"Now we don't have to worry about (center Maurkice) Pouncey getting hurt quite as bad," Arians said.
