Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Steelers will release linebacker LaMarr Woodley within the next 24 hours.
Insight: Woodley produced double-digit sacks three years in a row between 2008 and 2010 but he only has nine in his last two seasons. The 29-year-old Michigan product has played his entire career in Pittsburgh.

Description: Pittsburgh linebacker LaMarr Woodley is doubtful for Sunday's game against Baltimore due to an ankle injury.
Insight: The Steelers' defense has given up the fewest yards of any team in the league (2,829), but Woodley has been playing well and this would hurt as they get ready to face the division rival Ravens.

Description: Pittsburgh linebacker LaMarr Woodley is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Titans. Woodley exited Sunday's win over the Eagles because of a hamstring injury.
Insight: Head coach Mike Tomlin is calling the injury "mild" so Woodley probably would have had a good chance to play if the game were on Sunday or Monday. With the short week though, we're guessing the Steelers air on the side of caution and let Woodley sit this one out.
 
10/7/2012 2:15:00 PM
Description: Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley left Week 5's game against the Eagles with a hamstring injury. His return is questionable.

Description: Woodley signed his franchise tender on Wednesday.
Insight: The young stud 'backer is now locked in to return to the Steelers in 2011, but really, a long-term deal seems likely in this case. Woodley has quickly turned into an annual IDP starting option. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: LaMarr Woodley will show up on time for training camp, a source tells ESPN.com.
Insight: Woodley?s pursuit of a big payday is being handcuffed by the 30/30 rule. He?ll cash in sooner or later, but look for another excellent season from him on the IDP front. (RapidDraft.com)
 
7/26/2010 12:50:00 PM
Description: According to a source, Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley is expected to show up to training camp on time. SOURCE: ESPN.COM
Insight: Due $550,000 in 2010, Woodley knows he is grossly underpaid. But like other players in his situation, the "30 percent rule" won't allow the team to give Woodley the best contract possible. Woodley will play highly motivated this year with free agency looming in 2011.

Description: LaMarr Woodley believes the Steelers are taking a "pretty risky gamble" in banking on the franchise tag to be available next year.

Description: Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley is expected to sign a long-term extension once a new collective bargaining agreement is in place. SOURCE: SAGINAW NEWS
Insight: Woodley has been on his best behavior, even though he does deserve more money. Once again, the CBA is a thorn in a lot of players' sides going into 2010. The Steelers have been known to reward their own, so Woodley is biding his time until the "30 percent rule" is abolished.
