"I would think they understand that," Worilds told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I would hope they know that I rush the passer, so if they put me out of position, they do it knowing that they're taking me out of position to make plays.
"Some of the things that we're doing, some of the positions that they're playing [us] is kind of to help the defense, more so than from, I guess, a schematic standpoint with me individually rushing. ... It if helps the defense ... I'm going to do that for my team."
The Steelers have struggled defensively, however. They rank fourth-last in the AFC with 139 points allowed. They rank 23rd in the league with just nine sacks. Worilds has two sacks this season after recording eight in 2013.
"[Worilds] is playing hard," LeBeau told ESPN. "As a defense we have to get better in that area, but I would not hang it on anyone personally." LeBeau added that the Steelers came close to recording a few sacks of Tampa Bay quarterback Mike Glennon in Week 4 before falling short.
Worilds racked up eight sacks in 2013.
