Sanders, Keisel, Worilds appear on Steelers' injury report
The Steelers took Christmas off, but were required by the NFL to file an injury report.
If the Steelers had practiced Wednesday, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee/lateral meniscus), defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) and linebackers Jason Worilds (abdominal injury) and Terence Garvin (knee sprain) would have been unable to work, according to the team. Safety Troy Polamalu and tight end Heath Miller would have been given the day off.
Right guard David DeCastro (back) would have been limited, and linebacker Jarvis Jones (flu) and wide receiver Markus Wheaton (broken finger) would have been full participants.
So their players could have the holiday off, the Steelers (7-8) practiced Tuesday, usually the players' weekly day off. They will resume practicing Thursday for their regular-season finale Sunday against the Browns (4-11).
