News: Woodley was placed on injured reserve Thursday with a chest injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Impact: Under GM Steve Keim, the Cardinals have taken chances on veterans with team-friendly one-year contracts, producing resurgent seasons for Karlos Dansby and Antonio Cromartie in the past. Woodley was another player in that vein, but despite starting at weak-side linebacker, he only recorded 10 tackles and one sack on 42 percent of the defensive snaps. With his season over, Dwight Freeney and Markus Golden will pick up the slack on the outside.
