Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders will undergo knee surgery and miss "a couple of weeks," according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Sanders suffered the injury in Pittsburgh's Week Eight victory over the Patriots and missed last Sunday's game against Baltimore.

The team is expected to have WR Hines Ward return to the lineup soon. The veteran, who has missed time suffering from the effects of a concussion, was cleared to practice and should be in the lineup on Sunday when the Steelers take on the Bengals.
