Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley returned to practice on Wednesday as a full participant. Woodley had missed the Steelers' previous two games with an ankle injury he suffered during the first half of the Nov. 25 game against the Cleveland Browns.
Woodley has 21 tackles, four sacks, one interception, and one pass deflection in 10 games for the Steelers this season. The Steelers have lost three of their last four and could use Woodley to bolster a defense that has allowed 20 or more points in each of its last three games.
Tackle Mike Adams (ankle), cornerbacks Ike Taylor (ankle), Cortez Allen (groin), and Keenan Lewis (hip), guard Willie Colon (knee), linebacker James Harrison (illness), safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related), and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) all missed practice for the Steelers on Wednesday. Colon underwent knee surgery on Monday and will be out for several weeks.
The Steelers host the Dallas Cowboys at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday, Dec. 16.
