Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley was limited in practice on Wednesday, as his lingering issues with the hamstring injury he suffered versus the Patriots continue to bother him. The Steelers defense will be salivating at the opportunity to get after the quarterback, whomever that may be, for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
After Matt Cassel was placed on IR, the Chiefs were forced to install Tyler Palko as their starting quarterback. Palko threw three interceptions in a 34-3 loss to the New England Patriots on Monday night. Following the game, the Chiefs decided to claim Kyle Orton off of waivers after the Broncos released the quarterback at the wish of Orton. Orton had plans to fill the quarterback vacancy left by Jay Cutler, but the Chiefs with higher waiver priority struck first.
Palko, Orton or even Ricky Stanzi could all take snaps on Sunday for the Chiefs, as head coach Todd Haley is in a tough spot to get his team a victory.
