The Steelers’ top pass rusher is expected to miss another game.
LaMarr Woodley, who leads the Steelers with nine sacks this season, is extremely doubtful for Thursday night against the Browns, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports.
Woodley was named the AFC’s defensive player of the month for October, a month in which he recorded 7.5 sacks. But he suffered a hamstring injury at the end of that month and didn’t play at all in November. He finally got back on the field Sunday against the Bengals, only to aggravate the hamstring in the first quarter.
Now Woodley and the Steelers hope his most recent setback will only cause him to miss one game, and that he can play against the 49ers on December 19.
