Steelers’ Woodley will not play Sunday
Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley will miss his second straight
game because of a hamstring injury, and linebacker James Farrior
likely will be back for Sunday’s AFC North showdown in
Woodley was ruled out Friday after not practicing all week.
Farrior was designated as probable after practicing for the third
consecutive day. Farrior missed Pittsburgh’s last two games with a
calf injury. Backup Larry Foote indicated he expected to come off
the bench again.
Also probable for Pittsburgh (6-3) against the Bengals (6-2) are
two of the past three AP defensive players of the year, safety Troy
Polamalu (rib) and linebacker James Harrison (toe). Polamalu
returned to practice Friday, and Harrison was a full participant
after being limited Thursday.
