Pittsburgh Steelers lose Ramon Foster and LaMarr Woodley

 

Pittsburgh Steelers starting left guard Ramon Foster has been banged up for much of the season, and it appears it’s only gotten worse in today’s game vs the Buffalo Bills.

He left games against the Minnesota Vikings and Oakland Raiders with separate injuries, and he was removed from today’s game against Buffalo in the third quarter with an apparent ankle injury that will sideline him for the remainder of the contest and possibly longer:

 


The bigger news is that of Pro Bowl linebacker LaMarr Woodley being out. He’s been a solid player this year and the loss him of him would hurt an already banged-up defense.

He had five tackles before being force out due to injury. It was already his second-highest tackle total of the season behind the eight he recorded against the New England Patriots last week, and coming into the game, the veteran Michigan product had tallied 28 tackles, five sacks and a forced fumble in eight games.
