Woodson, Clifton Sustain New Injuries

Woodson, Clifton Sustain New Injuries

During his usual Wednesday press conference, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy described new injuries sustained by cornerback Charles Woodson and left tackle Chad Clifton in addition to their typical, nagging injuries.

As noted first by sports producer and photojournalist Pat Mayo of ABC-affiliate WBAY in Green Bay who reported on Twitter that Woodson had left practice with an injury, McCarthy confirmed the cornerback had sprained his ankle.

McCarthy could not say the severity of Woodson's injury as he was currently being evaluated. Woodson is also dealing with a toe injury as he has for several weeks, although it has not limited him during games.

The head coach also detailed a concussion to Clifton that occurred during the most recent game against the San Francisco 49ers, although the offensive lineman didn't show any symptoms until Monday.

The veteran left tackle is also dealing with chronic injuries to both his knees, which have historically limited him during the practice week but not enough to keep him out of games.

In other injury news, defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins (calf) and fullback Korey Hall (knee) have officially been ruled "out" of this upcoming Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Defensive backs Atari Bigby, Anthony Smith and Pat Lee did not practice on Wednesday, although they have not been ruled out.

Sweet -effing Christ, we're just not gonna catch a break this year, are we? Meanwhile, the Bears remain healthy as can be, and have a knack for being able to play opponents weakened by injuries.

Err, I should say, have a knack for catching opponents when they've been weakened by injuries.

If this is serious, this injury will hurt BAD (literally for Woodson) and packer nation.

Clifton had to go out sometime. If it winds up being now, looking at the depth chart, Bulaga moves to left tackle and Lang moves into right tackle.

Cuphound...nevermind the depth chart. Lang goes to LT and Bulaga stays at RT. They dont want basically 2 new guys at positions.

SpartaChris's picture

RT is relatively new for Bulaga though. IIRC, he didn't play it at all in college and just started there this year.

If memory serves, Lang filled in on the right side a lot last season. I believe the only reason Bulaga got the start over him this year is because of his wrist injury.

Bulaga is not Colledge. Lang is not Barbre.

What's Newhouse looking like these days?

YAY

If Clifton has to miss the game than Lang gets the nod at LT. I don't like the idea of moving Bulaga to LT for one game then going back to RT.

Now, if Clifton was going on IR I would move Bulaga but if its only one game than Lang should start at LT with Newhouse as the backup for both guys.

"Clifton passed enough neurological tests to be able to go through a light workout Wednesday. If things go well, he'll probably see an independent neurologist Thursday to see if he can be cleared.

That was the process Aaron Rodgers and Dimitri Nance went through. Generally, if they're working out on Wednesday, the prognosis is good."

Also .....
"DE Kyle Vanden Bosch will be going on injured reserve for a bulging disk. He was doubtful for this week before that. Starting CB Alphonso Smith was also put on IR today."

Norman's picture

Good news (for the Pack anyway) on Vanden Bosch, that guy is a beast. (/Sarcasm On) Now if Goodell would only suspend Suh for this game for that blatant, illegal hit on Cutler (/Sarcasm Off) we'll be all set.

Was the 7th rounder for anthony smith conditional or did we just give it straight up? Because if we did it would seem like a waste. Especially with ted getting 2 servicable players in the 7th round in the last 2 drafts.

PkrNboro's picture

Not like it was a realistic scenario anyway, but the Lions were officially eliminated from post-season activity last week -- let's hope that factors into their play this week.
