Timmons' groin was wrapped following the morning practice and Woodley injured a hamstring. Neither injury is believed to be serious, and both players will be re-examined before the first of two practices Saturday.
Timmons, from Florida State, was the 15th pick in last month's NFL draft. Woodley, from Michigan, was the 46th.
New coach Mike Tomlin called the injuries ``typical ... of players trying to make a first impression.''
The recent draft was the first in which the Steelers used their top two picks on outside linebackers. They were thin at that position after releasing former Pro Bowl linebacker Joey Porter, who later signed with the Miami Dolphins.
