The news was good considering what could have been on Eric Wood, who left Sunday’s game with a leg injury. Head coach Chan Gailey provided an update Monday.
When asked if Wood had a chance to be back in the lineup on Sunday, Gailey offered the following.
“It’ll be close on him,” said Gailey. ”He may not make it this week. We’ll just have to see. He just got banged up on the same leg. It’s kind of a sprain, bruise all that.”
Initially it appeared as though it was his right leg that got rolled up on the play in the Cincinnati game Sunday, but Gailey said it was his surgically repaired leg from last offseason. Kraig Urbik stepped in for Wood Sunday and would presumable start in his place this week if Wood is unable to go.
Knowing how careful they’ve been in handling Wood’s return from that long offseason rehabilitation, it wouldn’t be surprising if they gave him a week to recover. And if Urbik starts he’ll be motivated since the Steelers waived him earlier this season.
