LaMarr Woodley’s performance was a little too over the top today as the Steelers outside linebacker tried to convince reporters that there is a chance he will play Sunday night.
He pointed to a half-full duffel bag in front of his locker as proof that he will be a “game-time decision.”
And here is what Woodley said when asked what input doctors will have on whether he suits up against the Ravens.
“Doctors don’t know nothing,” Woodley said with a grin. “I know more than the doctors about my body. They just went to school for it.”
As for Mike Tomlin’s role in deciding whether or not Woodley plays, the fifth-year veteran said, “Not coach Tomlin’s decision, my decision. He’s just coaching.”
Woodley did say -– with a semi-straight face –- that his hamstring is much better than it was last Sunday night.
“Sunday it was hurting to go up the stairs,” Woodley said. “Now I move good going up the stairs, jogging and everything.”
Bring on the Ravens.
