The Kansas City Chiefs injury report had four players listed -- three are questionable and one has been ruled out -- and once again that's less than their opponent. The Pittsburgh Steelers have seven players listed on the injury report including some big names like LaMarr Woodley, Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Poalmalu.

Three Steelers players are questionable: WR Arnaz Battle (hamstring), LB Stevenson Sylvester (calf), LB LaMarr Woodley (hamstring).

The big name there is Woodley and he's expected to miss this game. (That scream you just heard was Tyler Palko jumping for joy.) Woodley has missed two games in a row so this is expected to make three.

And there are four players that are probable: LB James Harrison (back), S Troy Polamalu (ribs), QB Ben Roethlisberger (right thumb), WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee).

OK, let's go in order here. 1.) Harrison had an eye injury but returned to the field in Week 9 but the Steelers are listing this as a back injury. He should be good to go. 2.) Polamalu's ribs don't seem to be a problem. 3.) Roethlisberger suffered a crack thumb in Week 10 against the Bengals but they've been saying all week he's going to play. 4.) Sanders hasn't played since Oct. 30 but it sounds like this is the week he'll return.
