Knee injury might force Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders to miss Week 17

Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders @E_Sanders88 didn't play in the second half of Sunday's victory over the Packers, and he might be missed this weekend against the Browns. Sanders has been diagnosed with a meniscus injury in his right knee, according to head coach Mike Tomlin, who deemed Sanders questionable for Sunday's regular-season closer. If Sanders can't go, Markus Wheaton would replace him in the lineup despite fracturing a finger during the Packers' game. However, Wheaton is still expected to play.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Steelers have an outside shot of playing into January, so Sanders will play if he can play. He has scored in four of his last five games but hasn't surpassed 70 yards since Week 9. Sanders will be a decent WR3 if he is active against Cleveland.
