Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and linebacker Terence Garvin may play Sunday despite sustaining knee injuries that knocked each out of the Steelers' 38-31 win Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Sanders did not play in the second half after scoring a touchdown and setting up a field goal with a 47-yard kick return. An MRI did not reveal any serious damage to Sanders' knee. He was injured while running a pattern on the muddy playing surface at Lambeau Field. Sanders sprained his lateral meniscus. Garvin also sprained his knee, but coach Mike Tomlin said the Steelers are "leaving the light on" for both to play against the visiting Cleveland Browns in the regular-season finale. Wide receiver Markus Wheaton, who played for Sanders in the second half at Green Bay, broke a finger against the Packers but will try to play through the injury with a splint. The rookie will also tape the ailing digit to another finger. Outside linebacker Jarvis Jones is "looking better," Tomlin said, after missing the Green Bay game because of the flu. He will probably be limited in practice this week, as will outside linebacker Jason Worilds. Worilds is working through an abdominal injury that limited his playing time in the second half against the Packers. The late scratch of Jones and Worilds' injury left the Steelers with just one outside linebacker.
Emmanuel Sanders questionable
