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.
