Antonio Brown suffered a mild high ankle sprain last week and has been ruled out for week 10. Emmanuel Sanders is expected to take his spot in the lineup this week against the lowly Chiefs.
Jamison Hensley: “Brown plays a tough role in the Steelers’ passing attack, going over the middle where he turns short catches into big gains. Mike Wallace proved he could do the same Sunday when Brown was out, taking a pass on a shallow crossing route and breaking away for a 51-yard touchdown. The Steelers are fortunate that they have a talented backup in speedy Emmanuel Sanders, who has found a way to stay healthy this season. Sanders will also take over Brown’s role as the primary returner. He averaged 25.3 yards on three punt returns and nearly broke one for a touchdown.”
You have to like Sanders this week as a high upside WR3. He has good speed and hands, while having the backing of QB Big Ben who thought Sanders could be a top WR on most teams in the NFL. We shall see.
