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.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • Brandon James

    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.

  • RUFUS BUTTERBEAN

    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
