LaMarr Woodley may have been somewhat disoriented recently.
Barraged with questions regarding where he would be playing in the event he was able to suit up for the first time in three weeks against Miami Sunday.
He told BTSC (via Dale Grdnic) he wouldn't be moved from his familiar left outside linebacker position, even considering Jason Worilds has been on fire recently. Woodley was certain the change wouldn't take place, and it appears as if he will prove it Sunday.
Woodley has been able to practice all week, and heading into Friday's practice, it appears he'll be able to start Sunday against Miami.
His return will slide Worilds back to the right side, where he was starting previously. Jarvis Jones would be brought in relief.
Nose tackle Steve McLendon may miss his second consecutive game with an ankle injury. He's been unable to practice this week. Defensive end Brett Keisel has already been ruled out for the game, and the team has already said Mike Adams will start a left tackle.
Right guard David DeCastro was limited on Thursday, and missed practice on Wednesday. He is questionable for this game.
All signs indicate running back Le'Veon Bell will be able to play Sunday, 10 days after suffering a concussion as the result of a helmet-to-helmet hit from two Ravens players in Week 14. Bell has passed all his IMPACT tests, but will still need to be evaluated before being cleared to play. He's practiced fully all week.
