Steelers guard Foster aiming to play against Browns

Despite suffering a knee injury last month, Ramon Foster expects to feature in the Pittsburgh Steelers' NFL opener.

Ramon Foster is hoping to be on the field for the Pittsburgh Steelers in week one of the NFL season.

The 32-year-old offensive lineman was carted off the field after he suffered a knee injury in late July. He was expected to miss four to six weeks after he was diagnosed with an MCL strain and a bone bruise. 

Foster, however, returned to practice on Monday and said he thinks he will play in Pittsburgh's regular-season opener against the Cleveland Browns on September 9. He also said he initially believed the injury was career-ending.

"I thought it was over," Foster said (via ESPN).

"But we got the MRI and it's one of those things where you're calm now, you've got a shot. To say I'd be ready for week one, I honestly didn't think that, either. But the body's weird."

Foster has spent his entire nine-year career with the Steelers. He has started 44 games over the last three seasons.
