Woodley out for Steelers

CLEVELAND (AP) - Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley will miss the season finale against Cleveland with a hamstring injury.

Jason Worlds will start at left outside linebacker in place of Woodley, who also sat out last week against St. Louis and has missed six games this season.

Pittsburgh (11-4) needs a win and a loss by Baltimore at Cincinnati to win the AFC North.

As expected, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will start despite a high ankle sprain. Roethlisberger injured his left ankle on Dec. 8 in a win over the Browns and is not yet 100 percent. However, with so much on the line, coach Mike Tomlin will play his starting QB as long as necessary.

The Browns' most notable inactive is quarterback Colt McCoy, who missed Cleveland's final three games with a concussion sustained against the Steelers more than three weeks ago.
