LaMarr Woodley Injury Update: Pittsburgh Steelers' Linebacker Questionable To Return With Hamstring Injury

On a day when he recorded multiple sacks in a game for the 16th time in his career, Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley is questionable to return after injuring his left hamstring in the second quarter.

He is now on the sidelines with his helmet off but there is no word on whether or not he will return. With the game not in jeopardy at the moment, it might be best for the Steelers to leave him out unless he is actually needed. The Steelers defense has held the explosive Patriots offense to a lackluster performance so far today so his production isn't as needed as it normally would be.

Woodley is one of the leaders among the defense and the linebacking core and was playing well prior to his injury as one of the many defenders tasked with getting to and frustrating Tom Brady.

The Steelers lead 23-10 with 6:10 remaining in the third quarter.
