As linebacker LaMarr Woodley joins the list of big-name Steelers players with injuries, the early word is that Woodley’s ankle injury isn’t believed to be serious, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

Of course, beliefs can change after a night of sleep and the swelling that may go along with it. Not to mention the outcome of any of the various diagnostic tests.

The team for now isn’t saying much. The official word is simply that Woodley was ruled out during Sunday’s loss to the Browns.

Coach Mike Tomlin likely will address Woodley’s status during the head coach’s weekly Tuesday press conference. Along with the status of Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Troy Polamalu, and any of the other various injured Steelers.

Those injured Steelers need to get healthy soon, or 6-3 is going to end up being 6-6 by Sunday night in Baltimore.
