Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who injured his knee last week in the 38-31 victory at Green Bay, said he is “50-50” to play against the Browns Sunday in the regular-season finale at Heinz Field. Sanders was a full participant in practice Friday and is officially listed as questionable on the team’s injury report. He said a decision will not be made until shortly before kickoff.
Outside linebacker Jason Worilds, who suffered an abdominal injury against the Packers, also is listed as questionable. The only player who has been ruled out is reserve linebacker Terence Garvin, who injured a knee last week.
Guard David DeCastro, who did not practice Thursday because of a back injury, is listed as probable as are several others, including outside linebacker Jarvis Jones (illness), defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) and receiver Markus Wheaton (finger).
