Pittsburgh Steelers: LaMarr Woodley, Brett Keisel inactive vs. Browns

For the second consecutive week, the Pittsburgh Steelers will take the field without two key starters on the defensive side of the ball.

Both defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) and outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) are among the Steelers inactives as they look for their third consecutive victory Sunday afternoon in Cleveland.

In addition to Keisel and Woodley, QB Landry Jones, WR Derek Moye, TE Rich Gordon, LB Stevenson Sylvester and S Shamarko Thomas are also inactive.

Fourth-year pro Ziggy Hood will once again get the start in Keisel’s place. Hood recorded a sack at the end of the Steelers win last week against the Detroit Lions.

Woodley will be replaced by Jason Worilds as Worilds will shift to the left side once again.

That could be a good thing as Worilds was very good last week, recording seven tackles, a sack and four quarterback hurries.

Rookie Jarvis Jones, who batted down a pair of passes last week, will once again get the start on the right side.

The Browns list of inactives includes: DE Armonty Bryant, OT Reid Fragel, OT Garrett Gilkey, TE MarQuies Gray, LB Craig Robertson, C Patrick Lewis and OT Martin Wallace.
