Leading tackler at Pittsburgh

Woods recorded 11 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 24-10 win at Pittsburgh.

Woods' tackle total was also a season-high for him and his best since 2021 with the Lions. He's tallied seven-plus tackles in two of his last three games, but he'll still just be on the fringe of the IDP radar after Arizona's bye in Week 14.

Good to go Sunday

Woods was considered questionable to play Week 7 after he was limited with a back injury during practice Friday. While the nature of this issue was never revealed, the 27-year-old will ultimately be available to play against the Seahawks. Woods has tallied 11 tackles while playing 97 combined defensive snaps over the last two games.

Woods was limited in practice Friday due to a back injury, and he's been deemed questionable for Sunday's Week 7 game in Seattle, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Woods logged a full practice session both Wednesday and Thursday, so the back issue appears to be new. The veteran linebacker logged a season-high six tackles last week against the Rams in his second contest following a three-week absence due to an ankle injury. If Woods missed Week 7, Krys Barnes and/or Ezekiel Turner could see increased snaps.
