Woodley a Full Go in Wednesday Practice; Should Play Sunday vs Bengals

All signs seem to be finally pointing in the right direction for linebacker LaMarr Woodley to be able to take the field Sunday when the 8-3 Steelers play host to Andy Dalton and the Bengals at Heinz Field.

Woodley was a full participant in practice Wednesday, and report are he should be able return from a hamstring injury that has forced him to miss three games.

“I’m getting there,” said Woodley, according to the team’s website. “I was out there practicing again today. I felt pretty good on it. We will wait and see throughout the week. It’s the most I have done. I felt good so we’ll have to see. Each day I am getting better. I am day-to-day.”

Woodley, who is tied for second in the AFC with nine sacks, wouldn’t go on record though about playing in the big AFC North contest as the Steelers try and stay pace with the Ratbirds.

“We’ll see about that,” he said. “Throughout the week hopefully I just get better and come close to Sunday we’ll see.”

Safety Troy Polamalu, who Mike Tomlin said has no symptoms from a possible concussion against the Chiefs on Sunday night, did not practice. Center Maurkice Pouncey (illness), and linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring) also did not practice on Wednesday, while receiver Arnaz Battle (hamstring) and linebacker Larry Foote (hamstring) were limited.
