    Emmanuel Sanders out 3 weeks

    According to Ed Bouchette.

    @EdBouchette: Emmanuel sandera out for3 weeks

    @EdBouchette: Sanders had injection in left foot taking bone marrow from his heel to speed healing process

    @EdBouchette: #steelers could be in trouble at WR with news about Emmanuel Sanders. He had surgery on his left foot 12 weeks ago did not heal as expected
    As much as this absolutey sucks, it may be Sweed's opportunity.

    The Steelers lost a chance to add Plaxico Burress to their wide receiving corps Sunday and now they've lost Emmanuel Sanders for at least the next three weeks.
    Sanders, who became their No. 3 wide receiver as a rookie last season, is walking on crutches and his left foot is in a boot after a procedure to help it heal. Sanders caught 28 passes as a rookie, 12 of them in the final three games as he became a more favorite target of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

    But his right foot was broken in the Super Bowl and he wound up having surgery to repair breaks in both feet. The most recent surgery, on his left foot, was done 12-13 weeks ago. He reported to camp and ran the first day and practiced the second but began having problems with his foot.

    He described the prodecure that was done on his left foot on Monday in which bone marrow was removed through his heal and then injected in his foot to speed the recovery.

    Veteran receiver Hines Ward remains on the physically unable to perform list as his thumb continues to recover from surgery. Veteran Antwaan Randle El was released before camp began last Thursday.

    If it's going to happen, it's better that it happens now. If this is his ticket to healing up then let him sit out training camp and be ready for season opener.

    If this lingers on though, there will be some questions at WR suddenly for the Steelers. Not so much with the starting 3 because Wallace, Ward, and Brown will be ready. With the 4 and 5 WR sets that Arians runs though, things could be questionablet to say the least.

    Ward should be ready to go by the start of the season so I'm not worried about him but Sanders has so much to offer I'd hate to see him miss any significant time. This is where Sweed though needs to get healthy and on the field in a hurry. Use this time to make a name for yourself kid, it may be your last chance.

    All I saw were the tweets from Bouchette. I say if he's gonna be out 3 weeks, keep him out for four. We need him for the season opener. Sweed will get more work in camp and more time in the preseason now. Silver lining I guess.

    This is not good news although I am sure Emmanuel will do everything he can to get back on the field as soon as possible. This is an example of how surgery for a fracture isn't necessarily the best thing - that healing on its own can be better as with Ben's injury. I just hope that the treatments he is receiving will speed up the healing process so he can be ready for the season.

    Unfortunate, but definitely the best time possible for it to happen. I also agree with the idea of holding him out a little while longer to make sure that it has healed properly.
