Like I said...What are all of you basing that on ? I haven't missed a game since I was a kid so there are no smoke & mirrors. Worilds only missed 7 games out of 64. That is it...7. Played in more games than Woodley & Harrison when all 3 were on the roster. He missed 4 games in '11 because of his wrist injury but returned to finish the last 8 games of the season. Worilds had off season surgery to repair his injury & came back to play all 16 games of '12. Btw...18 sacks with only 21 starts is a pretty Dam good number to start with.
I said this 2 weeks ago in the "Worilds: What I don't understand" tread. But....Don't take my word for it. That was one question in Ray Fittipaldo's Steeler chat yesterday...See below.
Wild Bill: How many games has Worilds missed due to injury since he came to camp? His wrist set him back and it seems he had a lot of other injuries when he was needed to perform. Is he worth a Woodley like contract when he isn't very dependable either?
Ray Fittipaldo: Worilds did not play much as a rookie, only 43 snaps. He was active for all but two games and I'm not sure either was due to injury. He missed four games the following season when he had the wrist injury that held him back. He played in all 16 games last season. So he missed six games in three seasons and two of them (I don't think) were because of injury. Compare that to Woodley, who has missed significantly more time because of injuries, and I think it's safe to say Worilds is the safer bet from a health history standpoint.
