Receiver Emmanuel Sanders has been summoned to the NFL offices for a meeting about an injury that occurred during the Steelers win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Oct. 21.
Sanders went down during the fourth quarter of the game, while the team was preparing to get into their huddle. He was taken off the field by trainers, but did return to the game, leaving the league office questioning the injury.
“I have to go up and visit the NFL offices in New York,” said Sanders. “I am looking forward to it. I am not going to speak on it too much. It’s an in-house issue.”
Sanders said he learned of the meeting after receiving a letter via FedEx and wasn’t sure when the meeting was going to be held.
“It’s an in-house situation and we are going to handle it from there,” said Sanders. “That situation is a week ago. The NFL wants me to go to New York and I will continue to deal with it and we will handle it when I get there. Right now I am talking with Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin and we are handling it in-house.”
