According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Steelers plan on rotating linebackers LaMarr Woodley and James Harrison in and out of tomorrow’s game against the Eagles.

Bouchette says the Steelers want to keep their guys fresh after blowing a 4th quarter lead in Oakland in week 3.

“I have to come off,” Harrison said. “It’s no need being out there, being dog-tired, and not be able to do what’s necessary to play the position. You want to stay fresh. You don’t want to go out there and play every snap in the first half and come out sluggish in the third and have nothing left in the fourth.”
