Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who missed last week’s Ravens game because of the death of his mother and because of a knee problem, won’t be suiting up for a few more weeks.

That’s because, as the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports, Sanders underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee to repair the meniscus and, according to coach Mike Tomlin, he’ll miss the next few games.

Sanders is fifth on the team with 18 catches for 243 yards and two touchdowns.

In other Steelers news, receiver Hines Ward, who suffered from concussion symptoms after a nasty Ray Lewis helmet-to-helmet hit, should be ready to play this week, while linebacker LaMarr Woodley and his bum hamstring still are questionable.

Get over it Whiner! The Ravens were victim of the same types of bogus calls during the Monday night game in Jacksonville.

It is what it is. The Steelers coach chose to let the Ravens drive 92 yards because they didn't think we could do it.

Man upo and stop acting like a female dog.

Murderer Lewis fine was what?  Penalized how many yards?  Yep.... ZERO!  Baltimore had 3 penalties for 20 yards and Pittsburgh had 6 for 70.... half a football field, in Pittsburgh.  Lost with 8 seconds left by 3.  Hmmmmm Refs apparently took the dog in that one.

Sorry to hear about Emmanuel Sanders Mom passing away. I hope he heals physically and emotionally.

The Steelers have a nice group of young receivers.

I am glad to here Hines Ward is OK but I hope he is not coming back to soon. He is no youngster and this is when you need to be very cautious with these head injuries.
