Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley Leaves Bengals Game With Calf Injury

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley has left the Sunday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a calf injury and his return is questionable.

Woodley just returned last week after missing the previous three games with a calf injury.

With Woodley out, Jarvis Jones takes over at right outside linebacker as Jason Worilds started on the left side.

    Please for the love of god keep Jason Worlids, If this season Isn’t enough just look at his past 2 1/2. I think Woodley is a Top 3 when healthy in the league, but age and health are going fast.

  • Jay

    Idk if it’s just me but laveon bell makes this offense sooo goog

  • Brandon James

    All I know is I’m excited for next season.

  • Elijah Stevenson

    Woodley needs to go plain and simple.

  • michael young

    His muscles must be the consistency of paper mâché. He’s the new Deuce Staley. His uniform consists of a XXL hoodie and some sweatpants.

    This gives Garvin a chance and in the 1st half he has already shown something. Just ask the Bengals punter!

  • Chris S

    Garvin is coming in and splitting time with Vince Williams at ILB.

    While I do not hate Woodley as some do. Those nagging injuries (calf, hammy, etc) are killing him. I think back when they gave him and Timmons those big contracts…that they way overpaid. Obviously not much they can do about it now, but still.

  • Eric

    Agreed. We must figure out a way.

  • Eric

    A massive pay cut would be better

  • Virdin Barzey

    Age is not an issue with Woodley. Its just health.

  • Virdin Barzey

    Not sure about Timmons being overpaid. Woodley? Yess.

  • Bob Loblaw

    I’m not sure I’ve even seen Timmons limp off the field, let alone miss a game.

  • dgh57

    I guess the excitement of someone replacing Woodley caused me to talk before thinking.

  • Elijah Stevenson

    Man when did this great player have so much injury problems ? He’s a great LB and all but what’s the point of using his abilities when u can’t use more than half the time ?

  • Elijah Stevenson

    Yeah Timmons hasn’t missed a game, didn’t Woodley start having hamstring/calf problems five years ago ?

  • Nathan Shrift

    I think Woodley is a June 1st cut, namely using his portion of the cap to sign rookies.

  • dgh57

    I think I saw a graphic put up during the game that said 51 straight starts for Timmons!

  • Brandon James

    When Woodley is 30 this year? Yes its an issue, because Health and Age go hand and hand with these little tweaks, and hes not getting any younger.


    You can make the club… Soakin in the Tub… Woodley is a walking injury…

  • John Charmer

    He needs to go. Eats up cap space and rides the bench.

  • sean mcmartin

    hopefully The Steelers keep worilds and let woodley go..He is injury prone and he can no longer play a full season..

  • Jason

    I agree with almost everything except that Woodley is top 3 when healthy. Not even close

  • Brandon James

    Top 3 OLB in a 3-4 Defense? I would say so. He was when healthy, and I would go no further than top 5-6
