Woodley Could Start Thursday Against Cleveland

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said linebacker Lamarr Woodley suffered no setback to his recovery from a hamstring injury and he could potentially start Thursday night against Cleveland.

Woodley had missed three straight games to a hamstring injury and returned Sunday but left in the first half and did not return. Speculation was that he reaggravated the injury, but Tomlin said he’s not ready to declare anything about the injury until Woodley practices.

“I don’t know if you want to characterize it as a setback at this point,” Tomlin said in his press conference Monday. “I think that the week will provide that legitimate information for us.

“Obviously, he felt something, and he was mature enough to not do any further damage to it. We appreciate that. We will see if that provides an opportunity for us to put him in play this week.”

Linebacker Jason Worilds will start if Woodley is unable to go. Either way, Woodley could see limited time as Tomlin said the game plan was to limit his participation in his first game back.

Other injury news:

  • Offensive guard Ramon Foster sprained his ankle Sunday against Cincinnati and his status for Thursday night is questionable.
  • Wide receiver Arnaz Battle (hamstring) and linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring) have both already been ruled out for Thursday.
  • Tomlin was optimistic that linebacker Larry Foote (hamstring) could return Thursday night.
  • Nose tackle Chris Hoke (neck) and running back Jonathan Dwyer (foot) met with doctors Monday. The results have not yet been released.

On the Steelers: No chance of looking past Browns

Mike Tomlin amused many at his news conference while talking about Cleveland's Joshua Cribbs Monday. "We cannot let Josh Cribbs do what he's done to us time and time again in the past. We've been dead Indians in his cowboy movie enough," Tomlin said in a not-quite-PC comment because the coach apparently wasn't talking about the Cleveland Indians.

Could The Steelers Play A Game In Ireland Soon? Dan Rooney Hopes So

The NFL might be playing a regular season in Ireland in the near future in attempt to spread the reach of the game further, but the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely not be playing in that game if it involves losing a home game. It was reported today that the league has moved a step closer to playing a game at Ireland after a NFL delegation inspected Croke Park, a prime location in central Dublin with a tradition that is steeped in history. US Ambassador to Ireland and Steelers president Dan Rooney is a prime player in this game taking place in Ireland and reportedly the delegation is happy with Read more [...]Could The Steelers Play A Game In Ireland Soon?

Packers, Saints class of NFL field

The NFL has reached the quarter pole with its share of thoroughbreds. And its share of pretenders. With four weeks remaining, the Packers, 49ers and Saints have separated themselves in the NFC, and perhaps in the entire league. Green Bay and San Francisco already have secured division titles, and New Orleans is almost there.

Trib Columnist Dejan Kovacevic Talks NHL Realignment

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Dejan Kovacevic joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN after covering the NHL Realignment meetings in Pebble Beach to talk about every aspect of what was discussed, and how a decision was made.

Dejan is a fan of the realignment the league has come out with, and discussed the possibilities for the playoff format and how it could work out..

One thing this realignment will do is make teams put together their roster to beat teams in their conference since they’ll need to be in the top four in order to make the postseason.

We wrapped things up with Dejan getting his thoughts on some Steelers issues including LaMarr Woodley and Hines Ward, and how they’ll be used the rest of the season.
