LaMarr Woodley out vs. Ravens?
ESPN.com news services
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley is not expected to play Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens, a source familiar with the situation told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Woodley remained limited in practice on Thursday and his status for Sunday's showdown. He is undergoing aggressive treatment for his strained hamstring and said he'll be a "game-time decision."
Woodley injured the hamstring in the third quarter of last Sunday's 25-17 win over New England. He says he's taking it slow and hopes the late kickoff Sunday night will give him a little more time to heal.
The Steelers have not announced who will replace Woodley if he can't go, though rookie Chris Carter filled in against the Patriots.
Woodley turned 27 on Thursday and was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Month after racking up 7½ sacks in October, the second-highest total in one month in team history.
