Steelers WR Mike Wallace has knee injury but should play Sunday
So, rumor has it that the Steelers are planning for the return of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday against the Chargers. But there is some concern regarding his favorite target. Wide receiver Mike Wallace sustained a knee bruise during the closing stages of last week's win over the Ravens. Head coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that Wallace "could be limited" during the upcoming practice week, "but should play."
Wallace was on the field for only 61 percent of the snaps Sunday in his first game as a "co-starter" with Emmanuel Sanders, so for him to be limited even further would really hurt. I think he'll be able to tough this one out, but we will let you know if anything changes. Wallace sorely needs Big Ben to get back under center this weekend as he has seen his numbers inevitably plummet with Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch starting.
