Just got the text from the Steelers, talked about at Tomlin's press conference today.

With Sanders out until after the bye week we'll see more of Jerricho Cotchery. The Steelers are thin at WR right now with Ward's status in question and Arnaz Battle going out of the game last week. Sanders had a knee scope from an injury suffered against the Patriots. Sanders also spent the latter part of last week and the weekend back home in Texas with family mourning the loss of his mother who recently passed away.

The Steelers missed Sanders speed on offense in the Ravens game. I was hoping he'd be back but it looks like he'll rest until the KC game at this point atleast.

The bye week is going to be great for this team. A lot of players not fully healed from various things.
