Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders To Meet With NFL Over 'Cramp' Timeout
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders says he's going to meet with NFL officials to discuss his fourth-quarter leg cramp in a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals earlier this month, the Associated Press reports.
Sanders maintains he did nothing wrong when he suddenly dropped to the ground with the Steelers nursing a seven-point lead. Officials stopped play after Sanders laid down on the turf and television announcers suggested the third-year receiver was faking it so Pittsburgh could avoid using a timeout.
Sanders sat out one play, taking in a small amount of fluids while team doctors massaged his calf, before returning, he says the cramp was sudden but disappeared quickly after receiving medical attention. He says he's not sure when he'll meet with officials, but the Steelers will be in New York this weekend to face the Giants.

I think he was faking big time. Buy let's say he wasn't...because the TV announcers said he was, he needs to have a meeting with Goodell? IV gotten cramps in my leg and foot that hurt like a bitch and was fine a few seconds later after rubbing it.
Bye For Now.
