Cornerback Charles Woodson cleared his last hurdle in the NFL's concussion protocol and practiced in full Thursday.
He will be ready to go on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
The news wasn't as definitive with LB A.J. Hawk (calf), who ran at full speed along the sideline during practice, but still wasn't cleared to work out with the team. Hawk will be evaluated in the morning and may try to practice Friday.
If he doesn't, coach Mike McCarthy said he wouldn't necessarily rule him out, but it would seem pretty unlikely he would risk playing him without any practice time.
RB James Starks (ankle) and LB Desmond Bishop (calf) both did not practice and appear to be longshots to play.
Starks said he is feeling better, but he wasn't sure if the medical staff was going to allow him to practice this week. McCarthy said if he doesn't practice, he won't play against the Raiders.
After watching Starks leave the last two games (Yes, I know, McCarthy said they pulled him in Detroit because of the score) I think the best course of action would be to sit Starks on Sunday and let Grant and Saine carry the load.
As it stands, it sure doesn't sound like Bishop, Hawk, Clifton, Sitton or Starks will be playing on Sunday. That's a pretty decent amount of talent to have sitting on your bench.
