Linebacker LaMarr Woodley will miss his second game in a row with a hamstring injury when the Steelers play the Bengals on Sunday in Cincinnati.
Woodley has not practiced since he was injured against the New England Patriots Oct. 30 and has already been declared out of the game by Coach Mike Tomlin, along with wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders (knee) and Arnaz Battle (hamstring). Woodley is expected to return after the bye week.
However, Pro Bowl safety Troy Polamalu returned to practice today and will start against the Bengals, as will inside linebacker James Farrior, who has missed the past two games with a calf injury.
Polamalu and Farrior are listed as probable on the team's official injury report.
