LaMarr Woodley Injury Update: Steelers Linebacker Re-injures Hamstring, Out For The Day

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley re-injued his hamstring in the first half Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. Woodley's return was initially ruled as questionable, but as the half came to a close, word came down that the Steelers were going to shut him down for the rest of the day. Pittsburgh is already without linebacker Larry Foote, who is also dealing with a hamstring injury. Linebacker Stevenson Sylvester, who has been dealing with a calf injury and was inactive last week, is playing.

ESPN's John Clayton delivered the bad news via Twitter.

LaMarr Woodley reinjures hamstring. Return questionable.

Woodley was inactive last week against the Chiefs because of the nagging injury. All week, it was expected that he would give it a go against the Bengals but unfortunately his return was short lived.
