PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and linebacker Lamarr Woodley were both limited in Monday’s practice.
Roethlisberger suffered a broken thumb in the Steelers win against Cincinnati last Sunday. He has already announced the thumb won’t hamper his ability to play this week against Kansas City.
Roethlisberger wore a splint on his right thumb in practice with a glove on top and likely will play with a glove on his throwing hand the rest of the season or until his thumb is fully healed. He took snaps in the shotgun and participated in individual drills.
Woodley appears a bit of a long shot to play Sunday night against the Chiefs with a hamstring injury. He participated only in solo drills. Woodley has been out since the second half of Pittsburgh’s 25-17 win against New England Oct. 30.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is expected to address both players and their statuses today in his weekly press conference, along with any other injury news. He’ll also preview the Kansas City Chiefs.
Tomlin’s press conference can be hears live on Sports Radio 93-7 The FAN.
