Woodson Cleared To Play

Woodson Cleared To Play

From Tom Silverstein:

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.

Wonder if some of the players would play if Sunday's game was meaningful and if this will be McCarthy's approach the rest of the season -- players who are nicked-up skip games to get close to 100% for the play-offs. Did we ever hear a complete report on Sitton's injury/prognosis?

In other news, Jared Allen is now my favorite NFL player.

Allen on going to Detroit:

"I don’t like going to Detroit,” Allen said. “I’ll be honest. It’s gloomy, it sucks. Everything is brown and then there is snow on the ground. There’s like brownstones everywhere and I’m like, ‘Awesome.’ I don’t know, I couldn’t do it. If I had to live in Detroit, I think I’d just drown myself in the river that was across the way."

Allen on New Orleans:

I’m not trying to be mean," Allen continued, "but it’s just depressing when I go there. There’s two cities like I don’t go out to eat or don’t do anything. It’s Detroit and New Orleans. New Orleans looks like I’m driving through a third-world country. Every time I get off the plane, I’m like, ‘Oh, flak jacket.’ I’m trying to get down. I’m like, ‘Ah, crap, I can’t carry my gun here. This sucks.’"

“I don’t like going to Detroit,”

Does anyone?

This "free sharing" of information seems too good to be true. Like coumminsm.

OK I have never been to Detroit, so I will not comment on that one, but New Orleans, are you kidding me? If I was a celebrity maybe I could see it, but if you are an average guy and you cannot go out and have a good time in N.O. you must be dead.
