Pittsburgh Steelers Injury Report, Week 9: James Farrior, James Harrison Could Play; LaMarr Woodley Likely Out

Heading into Sunday's matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, the Pittsburgh Steelers have a trio of injured linebackers: James Farrior, James Harrison, and LaMarr Woodley. However, it appears that Farrior and Harrison might make their return to the lineup for the AFC North showdown.

Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports Farrior, who missed last week's victory against the New England Patriots due to a sore calf, practiced on a limited basis on Friday. "I feel good," Farrior said, according to Brown. "I'm ready to go. If they ask me to go, I'm going."

Harrison shares Farrior's wish to play. "I hope they don't got me out here practicing for nothing," the former Defensive Player of the Year said Friday. Harrison has missed the Steelers' last four games because of a broken eye socket. Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette repots Harrison will start Sunday if he receives medical clearance on Saturday.

The news on Woodley is less optimistic. Though he insists he's a game-time decision--"I know more than the doctors about my body," he told reporters Friday--Dulac says Woodley "will not play." It's important to note that this news is not official yet.

Farrior ranks No. 2 on the Steelers in tackles (33). Harrison tallied 18 (13 solo) in his four games, while Woodley has 24 tackles (12 solo) and nine sacks.
