"I think they will stick with what they have, plus draft a tall receiver in the first or second round. I think they will let Sanders leave in free agency for a number of reasons and are perfectly comfortable thinking Markus Wheaton will not only replace him, but also be a much better receiver. Their intent is to take a tall receiver early -- they have already indicated that to Ben Roethlisberger -- another indication that Sanders will be gone."

Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton, who played for Emmanuel 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.

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.

The pieced pointed out that it could be Sanders' last game with the team if they don't advance to the playoffs. And if he misses Week 17, rookie Markus Wheaton would get the start.

Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders left the game in the second quarter with a foot injury and didn't return. But Sanders indicated that the injury wasn't serious and said he did not need to get an MRI on his foot.
Sanders said the Steelers held him out of the game in part because they didn't want him making the foot worse on the wet field. But he said he could have went back in. Looks like he'll be fine for Week 12 matchup against Cleveland. It's a stretch of four tough passing defense the next four weeks for the Steelers: Browns, Ravens, Dolphins and Bengals.
