Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley returned to practice on Wednesday, and hopefully will play on Sunday after missing the last several weeks. Woodley had been dealing with a hamstring injury and limited in weeks past. Woodley practiced in full today. The Steelers missed Woodley in their last match up against the Cincinnati Bengals, with the Steelers winning in a close game, 24-17.
This will also mark the first time since Week 4 that Woodley and fellow outside linebacker James Harrison have played together. The return of Woodley and pairing with Harrison should help a Steelers pass rush that has been limited a bit the past few weeks. In the last meeting between the Steelers and the Bengals, the Steelers didn't sack rookie quarterback Andy Dalton even a single time. Woodley is expected to be active and start on Sunday.
