Ansah out for Lions; Woodley out for Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without two of their defensive

cornerstones for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Linebacker LaMarr Woodley and defensive end Brett Keisel were

placed on the inactive list. Woodley is dealing with a calf injury

while Keisel is out with plantar fasciitis in his foot. Ziggy Hood

will start in place of Keisel and rookie Jarvis Jones will fill in

for Woodley.

The Steelers also made guard Ramon Foster inactive because of a

right ankle problem. Guy Whimper will start for Foster.

Detroit rookie defensive end Ziggy Ansah will miss his second

straight game because of a sore left ankle. Ansah will be replaced

by Devin Taylor. Wide receiver Nate Burleson remains out as he

recovers from injuries suffered in a car accident in September.
