Packers’ Injury Report: Week 13
The Green Bay Packers resumed practice Wednesday in preparation for the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The team had a number of players who were limited and/or did not participate.
Cornerback Charles Woodson left practice with an ankle injury. The severity is unknown, but Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said that one player he talked to did not even notice Woodson leave the field. The fact that the injury did not draw much attention, likely means it’s not too serious. However, the team will provide a more detailed diagnosis Thursday.
Offensive tackle Chad Clifton was limited in practice due to a concussion and a knee injury. Clifton has battled knee injuries for the past few years, so a little rest should allow the 11-year pro to be ready to go on Sunday. The more serious impediment to Clifton playing is a concussion. Head coach Mike McCarthy said the head injury occurred in Sunday’s win over the 49ers, but Clifton was not symptomatic until Monday. Clifton was neurologically cleared to participate in a portion of Wednesday’s practice, so as long as he is cleared by an independent neurologist at some point this week, he should he able to play. If Clifton is unable to suit up, look for second year pro T.J. Lang to fill in.
Fullback Korey Hall has already been ruled out of Sunday’s game, and barring a dramatic recovery, defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins will miss the game as well. The full injury report can be found on Packers.com.
