Pittsburgh Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley (calf) was placed on Injured Reserve Tuesday, Dec. 17. In a corresponding move, the team signed LB Jamaal Westerman (Bills). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: It's been a tough season for Woodley and the Steelers' D, but now it's over for the LB, who has missed 3 of Pittsburgh's last 5 games and ranks 2nd on the squad with 5 sacks.

Pittsburgh Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley said he has been working out this season in hopes to avoid the injuries he suffered during the 2012 season. 'My offseason is going great. I'm looking forward to getting back with the team in a few weeks,' Woodley said. 'I've been training since the middle of February. ... It was a disappointing season being 8-8 and not making the playoffs. It was disappointing at the end of the day.' There were some criticisms about Woodley's fitness last season.
Huddle Up: After averaging 11 sacks a season from 2008-11, he only totaled 4 in 13 games in 2012 due to ankle and hamstring problems. Look for the extra offseason work -- and the first-round selection of LB Jarvis Jones -- to light a fire under Woodley in 2013.
