Woodley practices, Harrison doesn’t

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 12, 2012 – 4:14 pm

Linebacker LaMarr Woodley was a full participant in practice on Wednesday, with hopes of returning to action this week after missing the last two games with an ankle injury.

“I did everything today,” said Woodley. “I practiced the whole time from individuals to every team period. So I was out there the entire time.”

Woodley injured the ankle in the second quarter against Cleveland on Nov. 25, and missed the Baltimore and San Diego games.

“It’s always tough watching from the sideline, but when you’re on the sideline, you can do a lot,” said Woodley. “It’s almost like I was a player/coach. So when Jason Worilds was out there, I was telling him things that maybe I can see, what the offensive tackle was doing, just being out there helping one and other.”

While Woodley practiced, eight players sat out including tackles Mike Adams (ankle) and Willie Colon (knee) and cornerback Ike Taylor (ankle), all who have been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Also missing practice were cornerbacks Cortez Allen (groin) and Keenan Lewis (hip), linebacker James Harrison (illness), safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related), and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder).

    I’m really worried about the Steelers season this year, so far its turned out to be a rough one, what with all our injuries and big loses to teams I know we are better than. So all we can do is cross our fingers and hope for a win against the Cowboys.

    This is what i learned when you had a dissapointing lose in a football game you were supposed to win; you just have to accept it and look forward, but you have to play better than you did the last game. Make every play better than the last one.

    Here is a question. Now before I say this I understand injuries are partof the game, but with that being said. Who is our condition coach and why is he still here? I mean for the last 4 years our team as had injury after injury to person after person. Why is this overlooked so much? I love my team and will ride to the end but it’s been on my mind for years now. SMH

    Look if you a true steelers fan you would no be worried!!!!! look this is when the steelers on go to get hot!!!! both the ravens and bengals have hard remaining games. i like are chances to finish with three wins. we would be 10-6. we’ve done worst and won he super bowl and think if we bring it on together we will make a super run in the playoffs.

    I have been a true Steelers Fan for more than 30 years. In my opinion the Steelers are victim to thier own success. Late round picks have filled the Roster with back up talent that is falling below the competition when called apon. The next Three drafs will be very important and could impact the the next 10 years. Key veterans will be leaving soon. Who do we have that will replace them?

    Im not worried, for some reason the Steelers always play down to the level of a terrible team but can always beat the hard teams.. so when it comes the the playoff (cuz they WILL make it) they should be able to win against the better teams… Remember they won the suoerbowl as a 6th seed wildcard team!!! Lets GO STEELERS!!!

    Football is a great game, and it is so because it requires a lot of preparation and commitment in order to make things happen, we see so often that the best prepared teams usually produced the best results, but make no mistake, and I don’t know if there is an statistic about this in a game that has them all, but the truly successful teams, the ones that achieve beyond expectations, are the ones that can put their souls and spirits in to the field. These are, and always will be the fundamentals to create a dynasty like the one we so strongly believe in: The Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Well, when there are injuries you end up with less experienced players filling in, that however does not excuse a team for poor performances against competition they should be able to handle with ease. The focus of this years squad does not seem to fit the focus of the teams in recent history who have been playoff teams, conference champions, and superbowl winners. There is NO MARGIN FOR ERROR at this point. Disciplined play is needed to achieve the goal that every team has at the outset of each season. Fumbles due to mishandling the football, jumping offside on offense when you know the snap count, holding on a return, or a running play, these things happen in games, but at the rate they have transpired this season show a lack of FOCUS.
