It turns out, he was able to get through nine. A calf injury he suffered in the Steelers' Week 10 win over Buffalo will force Woodley out of the lineup when the Steelers host the Lions in Week 11.
Shamarko Thomas (ankle) was ruled out earlier this week. Wide receiver Derek Moye, tight end Richard Gordon and quarterback Landry Jones round out the rest of the inactive list.
The Steelers and Lions kick off at 1 p.m. ET from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
