The Wednesday injury report for the Pittsburgh Steelers is now out and it looks as if they will indeed get a few defensive players back Thursday night for the game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) and safety Shamarko Thomas (ankle) are both listed as probable after both practiced fully again on Wednesday.
It’s a different story, however, for linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf), who is almost certain to miss a third consecutive game. Woodley did not practice on Wednesday and is listed as doubtful for Thursday night. With Woodley expected to be sidelined, Jason Worilds will start again in his place at left outside linebacker.
Linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) looks as if he will be able to play this week after practicing fully once again on Wednesday. He is listed as probable on the injury report along with tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related) and tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle).
Nose tackle Steve McLendon (ankle) was ruled out earlier in the week and he will more than likely be replaced by Al Woods in the Steelers base defense.
