Pittsburgh Steelers Injury Report, Week 16: Emmanuel Sanders Could Miss St. Louis Rams Game

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders doesn't know "100 percent" if he'll play Saturday against the St. Louis Rams, reports Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The second-year man has a sore right foot stemming from a surgical procedure he had on it following Pittsburgh's loss to the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl.

"The most important thing is that I'm there for the playoffs and 100 percent," Sanders said, according to Brown. "Don't want this injury to be lingering."

It seems that Pittsburgh will take a conservative approach with regard to Sanders' injury. Brown guesses it will rest Sanders on Saturday, while Steelers Depot believes Sanders will miss Pittsburgh's regular-season finale against the Cleveland Browns as well.

Sanders, 28, has recorded 21 catches for 271 yards and two touchdowns in the 2011 campaign. He hasn't played since Dec. 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs, in which he caught one pass for six yards.
