LaMarr Woodley participates in Friday practice, says he'll start at Giants in Week 9

Geoff Burke

It wasn't a confirmation, but clearly, Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley wants to be on the field Sunday when the Steelers take on the Giants in East Rutherford.

After missing the first two practice sessions this week, Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley made it through Friday's practice, and indicated he intends to start Sunday when the Steelers take on the Giants.

The Steelers will need him - but need him at 100 percent. Woodley hasn't ever really healed from a hamstring injury in-season. He reinjured one multiple times last year trying to play, perhaps earlier than he should have, and this is the second hamstring injury he's suffered this season.

Will he be able to make it through four quarters is anyone's guess, but if he's in there, he needs to produce.

Since signing a $60 million extension with the team before the 2011 season, Woodley has missed a total of eight of the Steelers' 25 games. While he was racking up sacks until his Week 8 injury last season, he wasn't doing that this year.
