Cardinals' LaMarr Woodley: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodley was placed on injured reserve Thursday with a chest injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Under general manager Steve Keim, the Cardinals have taken chances on veterans with team-friendly one-year contracts, producing resurgent seasons for Karlos Dansby and Antonio Cromartie in the past. Woodley was another player in that vein, but despite starting at weak-side linebacker, he only recorded 10 tackles and one sack on 42 percent of the defensive snaps. With his season over, Dwight Freeney and Markus Golden will pick up the slack on the outside.

Raiders add veteran LaMarr Woodley
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

LaMarr Woodley's situation tied to Jason Worilds'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Steelers designated linebacker Jason Worilds with the transition tag on Monday, meaning they will have the right to match any offer another team makes to the linebacker this spring. But his future will affect LaMarr Woodley, who is on the chopping block based on his salary and recent injury track record. 

Woodley missed 14 games over the past three seasons, but he would count nearly $14 million in dead money on the salary cap, a problem since the Steelers are tight against the salary cap as it is. But the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says that if the Steelers keep Worilds then they'll likely release Woodley.

Worilds had eight sacks and 63 total tackles with a pair of forced fumbles, all career highs.

The Steelers could keep LaMarr Woodley and Jason Worilds
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert suggested the team could find a way to keep both LaMarr Woodley and Jason Worilds on the roster this offseason. Both are scheduled to be free agents in March. 

Where Colbert slowed down on the optimism is when discussing Woodley's injuries -- he's missed 14 games over the past three seasons. NFL.com also noted that Woodley would count $14 million in dead money on the salary cap, a problem since they're projected to be $10 million over the cap. 

Worilds also figures to be in high demand after his best season. He had eight sacks and 63 total tackles with a pair of forced fumbles, all career highs.

LaMarr Woodley taking different approach to staying healthy
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Injury-plagued Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley will be trying this offseason to shed that tag. That's why he will be working with noted trainer Tom Shaw.

Woodley has missed 14 games over the last three seasons, mostly with calf and hamstring injuries. He has previously trained on his own in Arizona, but will be working in Orlando this year with Shaw, who stresses running on trails and even sandpits to strengthen legs.

The new regimen for Woodley comes with the urging of teammate Ike Taylor, who has worked with Shaw.
