Woodley out, Harrison probable for Steelers

Curtis Painter,  James Harrison AP

It looks like the Steelers are going to shuffle their outside linebackers for their big Sunday nighter against the Ravens.

LaMarr Woodley has been ruled out of the game with the hamstring injury he suffered against the Patriots last week, but they should have James Harrison back. Harrison went through a full practice Friday and is listed as probable, although he still needs official medical clearance to get back on the field against Baltimore. Harrison has missed the last four games with a fractured right orbital bone.

“I’d definitely like to go,” Harrison said, via Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I hope they don’t got me out here practicing for nothing.”

The Steelers are expected to start Jason Worilds, who has missed the last four games with a thigh injury, in place of Woodley. The status of another injured linebacker, James Farrior, remains up in the air. Farrior said Friday that he feels ready to play, but he’s listed as questionable by the team. Wide receiver Hines Ward is also listed as questionable and, like Farrior, he said he expects to return to the lineup after missing the Patriots game.

Two other Steelers were ruled out for Sunday. Guard Doug Legursky will miss the game with a toe injury and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will be in Texas after the death of his mother.

    Now we move Timmons back to ILB, putting our LBs at best in the NFL! When woodely comes back ain’t nobody gunna stop us!

    Worilds is a freak of nature. His bull rush is insanely strong. If he can stay healthy the rest of the year, he might just open some eyes.

    The RAMS??? Really?

    Yeah, it won’t be a big one in a few weeks. Better have a bodybag ready.

    Or several against the Ravens this Sunday Night. On NBC.

    First Harrison is out, then he’s in, then he’s out, and now he’s in again.

    Uh, alright.

  6. makosalad says: Nov 4, 2011 5:55 PM

    Can’t wait to whoop up on the ‘Rams’.

  7. wizgoblin says: Nov 4, 2011 5:55 PM

    The Rams? Really?

  8. wink1010 says: Nov 4, 2011 6:11 PM

    Genuinely like both Head Coaches and their respective teams. Now, if only the fans could show some mutual respect between the two cities, uh, nah, never mind; this ain’t Alice in Wonderland…We truly dislike each other…

    The better team will win! Almost 48 hours and counting. Never thought I’d wish my weekend away but I would gladly do so if we could fast-forward to 8:20 Sunday Night!!!

    The Rams?gonna be a great game this weekend..but honestly with the Ravens offense and Flaco with the 27th rated QB in the league..i honestly cant see them beating the steelers this time…suggs already got diarrhea of the mouth..the steelers o line is much better than they were the first game and suggs gonna face an experienced lineman this time..i got my momney on steelers by 6.the steelers will prevent the pass game the same way they did with pats last week..and with timmons back at ilb the run game will be a no factor

    PROBABLE: Harrison (Eye)

    QUESTIONABLE: Farrior (Calf)

    DOUBTFUL: Ravens Luck (Reality)

    Spell check and proof reading can be your friend. You got your momney on the steelers ? Why do you think Sugg’s has diarhea of the mouth ? Maybe because he has more sacks against the rapist than any other player in the NFL. That should give him the right to at least talk about it.
    To all of the stealer fans: You had all this wishful thinking just before week # 1. How did that turn out for all of you ?
    There is absolutely no reason why they could not repeat that performance. Now, don’t disappear after Sunday night like all yinzs did after week 1.

  13. jeepin08 says: Nov 4, 2011 6:43 PM

    Yinzs think that week 1 behind the woodshed beating was bad. This one may be way worse with all the m.i.a. linebackers. Going laugh my butt off if Harbs runs the score up after all the whining the fans did after a 2 pnt. conversion. You all will definately need someone to call you a whambulance. Bawahahahaaaa.

  14. steeltownpride says: Nov 4, 2011 7:02 PM

    Jeep this time the Ravens only had a week to prepare for the Steelers . Last time they played they had all offseason to prepare . Steelers will adjust . Remember Brady owned the Steelers and we see how that worked out for them .

  15. steelernation1 says: Nov 4, 2011 7:03 PM

    hmm spell check?we are human kiddo..1 typo and you say i misspelled a word..wow obviously you understood what i meant when i typed that so zip it

    and i didn’t disappear chump..i faced it like a man just like you will after sunday night.and again pee brain ben isn’t a rapist.get your facts straight before you jump on ben about something he was never CHARGED of.so you show me son where there is proof and evidence that he is a rapist and was charged with rape?until then keep your trap shut.cause you are just wasting space here..

  16. steelernation1 says: Nov 4, 2011 7:07 PM

    keep talkin jeepass..just to let you know jeep the pats are by far a way better offense than your Ravens..and steelers shut them down big time..look for that this week also.

  17. crownofthehelmet says: Nov 4, 2011 7:09 PM

    @jeepin

    “there is absolutely no reason why they could not repeat that performance”

    Actually, there is absolutely no reason why they should repeat that performance. Besides all of the team dynamics that have changed in 7 weeks, that performance was aided dramatically by 7 turnovers and poor tackling. I like the Steelers odds in having significantly fewer turnovers/missed tackles. Not necessarily saying they’ll win, but there’s no way it’s another whipping. At least not in the Ravens favor.

  18. steelernation1 says: Nov 4, 2011 7:11 PM

    oh this is a cool one..hahaha this is bens comment after suggs says he owns bens ass…

    I know Terrell a little bit. He’s actually a good guy. We joke around on the field, so I don’t think he meant anything bad by it. I just think he let out a little emotion after finally beating me.

    after finally beating Ben lmao now that was a good one…

  19. Bubby Brister says: Nov 4, 2011 7:12 PM

    Never ceases to amuse me:

    “Haha, you root for a guy who was accused but never arrested for sexual assault. Stay classy.” – People who root for a guy who was actually arrested and charged with murdering two people

    Baltimore = declining, failing
    Pittsburgh = improving, winning
    Suggs = Bubba from Forest Gump, failing
    Harrison = healthy, winning
    Flacco = failure, failing
    Roethlisberger = AFC MVP, winning
    Baltimore fans = dwelling on week one, failing
    Pittsburgh fans = dwelling on week 8, winning

  21. goforgin01 says: Nov 4, 2011 7:51 PM

    Without Woodley and Harrison less than 100%, it’s a whole different deal.

    Easier for Ravens to make plays. Doesn’t mean they will.

  22. mswravens says: Nov 4, 2011 8:22 PM

    Wow – just a bunch of trash talk. No commentary about the injuries & the game.

    I didn’t think the Ravens were going to win week 1…and I don’t think they’re going to win Sunday. I hope I’m as wrong as I was week 1, but I think the Steelers offense will out-duel Ravens in a higher than expected scoring game.

    That said, If there is one Steelers LB I would want to be out, it’s Woodley. Harrison didn’t look good before he went down. He was just starting to improve. I know his back had a lot to do with it & the rest is suspected to have done him good…but I don’t think he’s in Ravens v Steelers shape…Woodley meanwhile was playing crazy good & I’ll take Worilds in his place any day of the week. That kid has done nothing & has not shown any proclivity to be a typical Steelers por-bowl quality LB. I do think Cam will mix it up, create some plays, and the Ravens inconsistent offense will score…like 24-27 points. I think Ben & his receivers, + superior special teams, rule the day and put up 28-31 on us.

    Of course, the one caveat is that we have been creating turnovers & Steelers have not. If we can go +2 or better, then I think we pull out another one! If we go +2 or more early, watch out for another whooping!!!

  23. sbxxix says: Nov 4, 2011 8:34 PM

    I think my 49ers can hang with both those teams. We’ll find out pretty soon huh guys. I can’t wait to start trash talking with you all. I think we have a shot to beat both of you with our defense and running game.

  24. steelersownyou says: Nov 4, 2011 8:45 PM

    Wait til they see jason worilds! Dude is a beast! Good luck with your bad offensive line dealing with harrison, worilds, timmons..i actually feel bad for tje ravens…they dont even understand the worilds of hurt coming their way!!!!!

  25. conquerpeace4d says: Nov 4, 2011 9:17 PM

    I think Joe Flacco might be the worst starting QB in the NFL right now.

  26. steelersownyou says: Nov 4, 2011 9:39 PM

    49ers got a good defense. But alex.smith sucks! Green bay will dismantle the 49ers. Rematch of last years super bowl. Steelers vs Packers..Steelers win & Big Ben is your MVP! BOOK IT!

    Terrell Suggs flaps his enormous gums about wanting Heinz in the game… Why? Is he gonna cover him??!? LOL

  32. jdunio says: Nov 4, 2011 11:25 PM

    Looking at this game objectively, how could anyone think the Ravens have a chance to win the game? The Steelers beat the Pats worse than the score suggested…The Ravens had to come back from a huge deficit to squeak past the lowly Cardinals.

    The beauty of this rivalry though is that it doesn’t matter what happened last week, last game, or last season. Both teams will be ready to play, but unfortunately for the Ravens…they can’t win in Pittsburgh.

    Steelers 20 Ravens 16

    During the 55-game Harbaugh era, the Ravens have actually averaged more points per game than the Steelers, 23.8-22.6. The Ravens are 10th in the NFL in scoring over that period. This year, the Ravens are one of only three teams (Saints, Pats) that have scored 28-or-more points five times. It’s interesting how the perception is that the Ravens can’t score points.

  36. causeisaid says: Nov 5, 2011 8:55 AM

    Fans will be fans and I find the trash talk humorous but people – if you are going to post – just get your facts straight. You cant argue over FACTS. Ray Lewis was convicted of misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice about a statement he made when questioned by police the night of the incident. That is fact. Ray Lewis was never convicted of murder.

    I’m already dreading Monday morning, with these boards being filled with the inevitable, deafening barrage of high-pitched squealing, and gurgling noises coming out of Baltimore as they complain, gripe, moan, cry, sob, wail, grumble and whimper about the officiating.

    Someone mentioned about Ray Lewis not being convicted… Well neither was OJ or Casey Anthony.

    Someone else mentioned about how the Ravens are high scorers… They weren’t really convincing for your arguement against the Jags.

    there defense can score points..and last week if i recall 21 of there points were gifted by pass interference penalties by the cards in the end zone that put ravens on 1 yrd line..if they cant score from there they suck worse than everyone thought..and besides that scoring points is not an issue if you cant win in the playoffs

    Bama/LSU tonight. Steelers/Ravens tomorrow night. I think this is the most EPIC weekend I’ve ever had as a football fan. If my teams lose, I’ll be on both sites congratulating the winners … as always. But I hope the football universe is not that cruel :D

    steelers fans talkin a bunch of garbage,the ravens will control the line and u can count on a big Ben fumble early cuz he scarrrred of tee sizzling suggs.The steel curtain was in the 70s and these fans sound like they still living in the 80s get real .this team was built to beat the steelers and it will get done.

Ravens 17 Steelers 38 FINAL

    I talk to many Steeler fans on here that are classy people and have a good perspective of the game of football. Yes, there are several Ravens fans that are obnoxious, but there’s some Steeler fans that are too. This is not directed at decent ones, but the ones that post things like above:
    Us Ravens fans are feeling the sting of the thrashing your superior team gave us tonight! I’m not saying our team is better than yours – but we certainly were tonight!
