Default Steelers OLB Woodley won't play in Week 9

Steelers OLB Woodley won't play in Week 9
By Scott Brown
Saturday, November 5, 2011

The Steelers figure to get starting outside linebackers James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley on the field together one of these games. But it won't be Sunday night when the Baltimore Ravens visit Heinz Field.

Woodley won't play, but Harrison, barring a setback, will return to the starting lineup after missing four games with a right orbital bone fracture.

The Steelers ruled out Woodley (hamstring) after practice Friday and listed Harrison as probable on their injury report. Inside linebacker James Farrior is listed as questionable with a calf injury, but he said he is ready to play after missing last week's game.

Harrison, listed as a full participant in practice Friday, is expected to receive medical clearance today to return.

"I hope they don't got me out here practicing for nothing," he said.

With Harrison returning at right outside linebacker, Jason Worilds is expected to make his first career start at left outside linebacker in place of Woodley. Lawrence Timmons, who started the past four games at right outside linebacker, moves back inside. He will start alongside Larry Foote or Farrior.

Farrior practiced on a limited basis yesterday.

"I feel good," he said. "If (the coaches) ask me to go, I'm going."

Woodley insisted all week that he would be a "game-time decision" even after he watched practice Friday. He said he has made significant progress since leaving the 25-17 win against New England.

"Sunday (night) it was hurting to go up the stairs," he said. "Now, I move good going up the stairs, jogging and everything."

>> Receiver Emmanuel Sanders won't play Sunday. He has been in Texas since the death of his mother, and her funeral is today. The Steelers listed Sanders, who also is nursing a knee injury, as out on the injury report.

>> Receiver Hines Ward is listed as questionable, but he is expected to play. Ward practiced on a limited basis Friday. Punter Daniel Sepulveda (knee) is also listed as questionable. Tackle Jonathan Scott (ankle) is listed as probable after fully participating yesterday. Guard/center Doug Legursky (toe) was ruled out earlier in the week.

>> The Ravens will be without receiver Lee Evans for a sixth consecutive game because of an ankle injury. Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (thigh) practiced on a limited basis and is listed as probable. Starting left guard Ben Grubbs (toe) practiced on a limited basis and is listed as questionable.

Shame. He really went beast mode over the past 4 weeks. Here's hoping that James Harrison can be James Harrison Sunday.
