Steelers injury report: Keisel wants to play, Woodley doubtful

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

Steelers could lose two veterans for Sunday's game against the offensively talented Lions.

Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) missed all three days of practice this week, usually a pretty strong indicator a player will miss the upcoming game. He was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, but Keisel may have other plans.

"I think I’m gonna go," Keisel said, as quoted by Mike Prisuta of Steelers.com "It gets better every day, so Sunday it should feel good."

Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley echoed similar sentiments to Prisuta. He's listed as doubtful for Sunday's game with a calf injury that limited his snaps against Buffalo in a Week 10 win. Both are considered game-time decisions.

Rookie safety Shamarko Thomas was declared out early in the week. Left guard Ramon Foster didn't practice all week either, and is listed as questionable for the game.

All five members of the Steelers' starting offensive line missed practice to some degree this week, but Foster is the only one who missed more than one day. It's likely Guy Whimper will start at left guard.

Kickoff against the Lions is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET.
