Steelers Injury Report: LaMarr Woodley and Mike Adams both ruled out, Willie Colon and Jerricho Cotchery set to return

New, comments

The Steelers will be without outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley and right tackle Mike Adams for Sunday's game against the Chargers. It will be the second consecutive game the pair has missed. The Steelers are healthy after those two, however.

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley and right tackle Mike Adams have been ruled out for Sunday's Week 14 game against San Diego.

Neither practiced at all this week, and their likelihood of playing wasn't ever very large. Along with cornerback Ike Taylor, who fractured his ankle in the Steelers' Week 13 win over the Ravens. He'll likely miss at least the Steelers' Week 15 game against Dallas as well.

Outside of those three, the rest of the Steelers' injured players practiced Friday, and are listed as probable for Sunday's game (except quarterback Byron Leftwich, who is listed as questionable with broke ribs). That includes left guard Willie Colon and wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery, neither of whom have played in the last two games.

The Steelers head into Sunday's game with the Chargers up a tiebreaker on Cincinnati for the AFC's final wild card spot. The Indianapolis Colts (8-4) are a game ahead with the advantage of owning a better AFC record (the second tie-breaker among non-divisional opponents, head-to-head record is the first).

The Bengals, winners of four straight games, host the Dallas Cowboys.
