Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders expected to play despite foot injury

Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders @E_Sanders88 missed the second half of Sunday's win against the Lions with a foot injury, but he won't miss much more time than that. He has apparently avoided a long-term issue, and head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Sanders is expected to play in Week 12 against the Browns. Tomlin added that Sanders will be limited in practice.

Fantasy Analysis:

Sanders posted solid stat lines in Weeks 8 and 9, gaining more than 80 yards in each. But those games are sandwiched by days in which Sanders failed to top 15 yards. He is not a comfortable fantasy start in most weeks, but this matchup against Cleveland is favorable. While Joe Haden has been shutting down opposing No. 1 receivers -- look out, Antonio Brown @AntonioBrown84 -- the Browns' other corners have been rather generous. In the past month, secondary wideouts such as Marlon Brown, Mohamed Sanu @Mo_12_Sanu, and Jarrett Boykin @BoyKinHeCatch have all found the end zone versus Cleveland. Sanders, barring a setback with his foot, is a sneaky WR3 this Sunday.
