LaMarr Woodley out again for Steelers

Tom Brady, LaMarr Woodley AP

LaMarr Woodley will get at least two more weeks off to rest his injured hamstring.

The Steelers ruled their linebacker out for the second straight week after Woodley missed practice again on Friday. Woodley, the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October, hurt the hamstring late in Pittsburgh’s victory over the Patriots two weeks ago and missed last week’s loss to the Ravens. With a bye coming for the Steelers next weekend, the hope is that the extended rest will enable Woodley to get back on the field without missing any more game action.

The Steelers should have linebacker James Farrior back after he missed two games with a calf injury. He’s listed as probable and his return means the Steelers have some options for replacing Woodley in the starting lineup. They could go with Jason Worilds or they could move Lawrence Timmons back outside. Timmons started at outside linebacker while James Harrison was recovering from a broken orbital bone.

Wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Arnaz Battle were also ruled out for the Steelers.

    Awesome. James Farrior comes back. That will be like having an extra person on the field. And by extra person, I mean his walker.

    Did you hurt yourself with that joke? Seriously dude, stick to pumping gas. I don’t think your career as a comedian will get you very far.

    I love Farrior coming back….its NOT a good thing when you outside linebacker has alot of tackles. Lets be honest here, he sucks in coverage, and thats where Gresham will make him pay!
    WHO DEY!

    America, you are now witnessing Exhibit 1,327 why Tomlin is a better HC than Cowher.

    TOMLIN (2011): Tomlin recognizes that by sitting Wood one more game, he’ll be giving him an additional 2 weeks of rest and recovery time than if he’d have run Wood out in Cincy, and risked him aggravating the torn hammy – and shotgunning Woodley’s productivity for the season. That’s called common sense.

    COWHER (2001): In 2001, the Steelers had LB Kendrell Bell coming off a stellar Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign. NINE sacks as an ILB. Unhread of for an All Pro ILB, let alone a rook. So Cowher, faced with a very similar situation botches EVERYthing. The Steelers have a week 3 bye that season, and Bell is hurt. So what does Cowher do? Does he sit Bell for two games, so Bell can be 100% by game 3? No. Not Bill Cowher. He runs out an injured Bell, whose play is already compromised by injry, and trashes Bell’s career. Bell was done after that. Not only that, the Steelers lost both games to the Pats and the Raiders (I think) to start 0-2 too. Another genius move, Bill.

    Cowher: good guy, but Tomlin is the one who really rocks. Major advantage: Tomlin.

    @daryllh …

    Yeah, in addition to the stats blitzburgh43 provided, that old guy is our defensive signal caller. So I’m glad he’s hobbling on back out.

    Rotten news about Woodley though. Sure missed his pass rush last week. Would love to introduce him to Dalton.

    You better worry about the Bengals this week, not the Ravens last week.

    Steeler fans, we play the Bungals twice, Woodley will get many chances to introduce himself to Dalton in the second game, at Heinz Field to boot !!

  13. steelersownyou says: Nov 12, 2011 4:29 PM

    treydawg69 you better worry bout seahawks. Cuz we all know ravens are more than capable of being whooped by seahawks..refer to titans and jaguars…
