Two days after injuring his calf against the Cincinnati Bengals, outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley watched his season, and possibly career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, come to an end. The team placed the veteran on the season-ending injured reserve because of his latest injury.
Now the Steelers have to make a decision on his long-term viability. As the highest-paid linebacker in franchise history, he has not met expectations of the $61 million contract he signed in 2011. In all, he has missed 12 games since signing the contract, and has been a complete disappointment.
To take his place, the Steelers added veteran linebacker Jamaal Westerman to the roster. Westerman, a five-year veteran, was recently released by the Buffalo Bills after 12 games. In all, he recorded nine tackles tackles and .5 sacks.
