Default On the Steelers: LBs hobbling, but Woodley making a healthy impact

It looks as if James Harrison will miss his third consecutive game as the attrition among Steelers linebackers begins to add up again.

There is Harrison, who missed five games last season and who has yet to play in any game since Jan. 1 because of a lingering knee injury. There is highly touted rookie Sean Spence, lost for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament tear. There is top backup inside linebacker Stevenson Sylvester, who played in the first preseason game and nothing since because of a torn medial collateral ligament.

I rewatched some of last weeks game and Worilds is disappointing. He was trying to run around blocks of D'Brickashaw Ferguson instead of taking him on and working the pass rush in close quarters with strength and hand placement.

Sad to see that the Jets UDFA OLB from Fresno is a better pass rusher than our #2 pick from a few years ago. IDK if we need to draft a pass rusher or a Safety next season as a top priority.

Sometimes you miss, sometimes you hit on second round draft picks. The Steelers are notorious for finding great players in rounds 2 and 3 but those are the rounds that are the most unpredictable. Worlids never had the chance to take off. Injuries are killing his progress and needing to stick out following guys like Harrison and Woodley is a tough act to follow. He'll get playing time, but next season may be his last in camp if he doesn't show improvement.

Butler and LeBeau seem to like him. Worst case scenario, he's a good body for depth and competition purpose's.
