Steelers replace LB Woodley on injured reserve

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers have placed linebacker LaMarr Woodley on injured reserve with his second significant calf injury of the season.

Woodley left Sunday's 30-20 win over Cincinnati in the first quarter after straining his right calf. Woodley missed three games earlier this year with a strained left calf.

Pittsburgh signed linebacker Jamaal Westerman to take Woodley's spot on the 53-man roster. Westerman has played 57 games during his five-year career. He was cut by Buffalo last week.

The decision to place Woodley on injured reserve puts his future with the Steelers in doubt. The 29-year-old is in the third year of a six-year extension he signed before the 2011 season. He is due more than $13 million next year but hasn't played a full 16-game schedule since 2010.
