Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley left Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns in the first quarter with an ankle injury.

His return is questionable, according to Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest.

Woodley left the game twice in the first quarter. He left on the first play of the game but was deemed probable. He returned in the second defensive series, but once again left shortly after with the same ankle injury.

Woodley has appeared in all 10 games for the Steelers this season. He's racked up 21 tackles, four sacks and an interception.

The second-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft has started 66 games in six seasons with the Steelers. He has 190 career tackles, 52 sacks, five interceptions and three touchdowns.

Woodley earned his only Pro Bowl appearance in 2009. He had 51 tackles and 13.5 sacks.

The Steelers are 6-4 this season and sit in second place in the AFC North.
