Steelers Vs. Browns: Pittsburgh Hosts Cleveland On Thursday Night Football

The Steelers host the Browns with both teams on short rest. They may have to do it without wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

The Pittsburgh Steelers (9-3) take on the Cleveland Browns (4-8) this Thursday, Dec. 8, on short rest; both teams played Sunday, with Pittsburgh prevailing against the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland dropping to the Baltimore Ravens.

They may have to take on their AFC North rivals without Emmanuel Sanders, as offensive coordinator Bruce Arians says the wide receiver's knee is "still not 100 percent," according to Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Sanders caught one pass for six yards against Cincinnati; on the season, he has 21 receptions for 274 yards and two scores. Sanders missed two games earlier this season due to soreness in his knee.

Ramon Foster, the team's starting right guard, could play Thursday despite having a sprained left ankle, Arians said, also according to Brown. He participated in Tuesday's practice.
