Woodley questionable with hamstring injury
By Jamison Hensley
The injuries continue to pile up for the Steelers. Shortly after the Steelers announced safety Troy Polamalu reinjured his calf, Pittsburgh reported that outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley is questionable to return with a hamstring injury.
Woodley missed six games last season with a hamstring injury. He wasn't on the injury report but the Steelers entered the game wanting to rotate him with Jason Worilds to keep Woodley fresh for the fourth quarter.
This has become a disturbing trend for the Steelers. Since the start of the 2011 season, Pittsburgh has had trouble getting both Woodley and Harrison on the field at the same time. The Steelers' pass rush has suffered as a result.
