Steelers’ LaMarr Woodley placed on season-ending IR
A right calf injury has forced Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley on the season-ending injured reserve list, according to Scott Brown of ESPN.com.
The former All-Pro injured his calf in the team’s 30-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, and coach Mike Tomlin had indicated after the game that Woodley might be placed on injured reserve.
Woodley missed several games at the beginning of the 2013 season with a similar injury in his left calf. He has missed 12 games since signing a six-year contract in 2011 worth $61.4 million, the largest contract in team history for a defensive player.
