A right calf injury has forced Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley on the season-ending injured reserve list, according to Scott Brown of ESPN.com.

The former All-Pro injured his calf in the team's 30-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, and coach Mike Tomlin had indicated after the game that Woodley might be placed on injured reserve.
