Woodson says shoulder won't limit him

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson left Sunday’s game against the Cardinals because of an injury to his right shoulder, and that could be a concern, as problems with both shoulders have plagued Woodson for years.

But Woodson says the injury is nothing he needs to be worried about as the Packers and Cardinals prepare for a playoff rematch.

“It just hurts,” Woodson said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “At certain times you land in awkward positions extended in a way and you get a sharp pain. Sometimes it lasts longer than others. It’s just something I deal with. I feel good. I’m ready to go.”

Woodson, who was a full participant in practice on Thursday, said he’ll be ready to make his customary contributions to the Packers’ defense, and that his top job against the Cardinals will be to shut down wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

“We’ll mix it up and try to throw them off-balance a little bit and put me in some different positions,” Woodson said. “But it’s no secret that most of the day I’ll probably be on Fitzgerald.”

Packers offensive tackle Chad Clifton was a full participant in practice, as were defensive linemen Ryan Pickett, Johnny Jolly and Michael Montgomery. Packers safety Derrick Martin is the only player who’s in danger of missing the game against the Cardinals.

  1. Fortunately for Woodson, he doesn’t use his shoulders to hold wr’s. Woodson is good but doesn’t deserve the accolades he gets for being perhaps the worst cb in the league when it comes to holding wr’s. He has turned the act of holding into a real art form. He lives off his reputation and officials are afraid to call him for holding.

  2. For everyone who didn’t see my sign Sunday, 3/4 of the earth is covered by water the other 1/4 is covered by Charles Woodson.
    GO PACKERS!!!!!!!!

  3. His name is Larry Fitzgerald and he’s coming full strength at ya’!
    Have fun woodson.
    If Boldin plays he’ll knock woodson out of the game.

  4. @ MrHumble
    Umm, have you actually seen any Packer games this season? I am a season ticket holder, and what you’re saying is total bull. Now Al Harris, yes, he holds a lot. Really, just a lot, and gets away with it. I will openly admit that.
    Woodson does not hold. When he rarely does, he is called for it. He is a shutdown corner and makes plays all over the field. He dominates unlike any corner in recent memory. If you say otherwise, well, you obviously haven’t watched him that closely. Or, you know, you might just be what the kids call a “hater.”
    Are you actually Fred Smoot? If you are, I can see how you would be jealous of a true shutdown corner. The guy is clearly the DPOY. Everyone knows it. So get over it.

  5. Mr. Woodcock sumo wrestler tactics may fool some. Ballers in the know see right through his bullshit!

  6. Yes Woodson gets his fair share of penalties because of his physical style of play, but you are faulting him for figuring out what he can get away with and exploiting it? Only an idiot would not get away with as much as they could in a sport as tough as football.

  7. Woodson is a shoe in for the “Defensive MVP” Woodson was named NFC defensive player of the month in December. He has won the award three of the fourth months this season, making him the only defensive player to ever have won it more than once in one season.

  8. Good thing Wood can jump routes better than anyone playing, hey Mr.Humble? Simply amazing. He should beat out Revis for defensive MVP. Beat him like a drum.

  9. Revis has more talent in his big toe than Woodcock. Tebow’s a Douche is short bus brain dead. Sharper had many big plays too. They are both smart old vets. Revis owns them both tools.

  10. MrHumble,
    Are you a fan of football? You don’t seem to be since you are denigrating one of the best pure CBs in the game. A cornerback who comes up on run support, plays man coverage with the best that have ever played this game, and a corner who can drop back in punt return position and take it to the house.

  11. Greatest sign ever seen at Lambeau:
    “I’ve got a Harris in my mouth from your Woodson”
    Greatest t-shirt at a packer game:
    “Show me your Woodson”
    …eat that AR12isBetter

  12. “Mr. Woodcock sumo wrestler tactics may fool some. Ballers in the know see right through his bullshit!”
    Oh, right, You are a baller. What grade school team did you warm the bench for? Baller….pud!

  13. I love how Pervy Harvin posts after every GB Packers fan, dude, doesn’t mamas basement get lonely, maybe even a little chilly? All you’ve done all year is call every Packers fan that you can find names. I don’t get it, why are you soooo mad? You think you’ve got the best team ever, so cheer up, dipshit. You’re right Favre prolly won’t break down this year. The only time he does is in COLD weather. Since all the Viking pussies play inside-the cold doesn’t matter. Don’t say Favre is the best-cause he’s not. Get him off the carpet in the dome and he’s ave. at best. GB was 6-10 last year, they’ve improved 5 games this year. 1 and done is fine this year in the playoffs it Rodgers first post season, GB will be good for the next 10yrs. When Favre is gone this year or next year or the next year or the following year or the year after that(you get my point)-you’ll be right back where you started, 0 rings and NO hope of EVER having one. So next time you read a Packers fans post, remember-YOU’RE NOT MAD AT THEM,YOU’RE MAD AT MOMMY. JUST ASK HER NICELY TO TURN THE HEAT UP.
    Posted this again in case you missed it the first time Pervy “MOM!!! MEATLOOOAAAF!!!!!” Harvin

    I can clearly see this buffoon is jealous that the Packers actually have talent in their secondary unlike the Vikings who have been enjoyed getting torched by QBs this season.
    Grow the hell up you lunatic.

    I am embarassed for you, for posting this on PFT
    My God… Get a passion, get a life, and get original.
    Original is good.

  16. @ erikleif
    Um, you mean kind of like how almost the whole Viking team should have been in the slammer for bringing a bunch of hookers onto a party boat and sailing beyond coastal boarders??? Or how about Jared Allen driving drunk as hell and putting lives at risk? Or how about your two cheating DTs breaking drug rules and somehow getting away with it totally clean?
    Man, think before you type you damn moron.

  17. Funny listening to Pervy, favre is a vet….pervy says he’s better than EVERYONE. Woodson is a vet…..pervy says he’s not better than anyone? What gives Pervy “MOM!!! MEATLOOOAAF!” Harvin?
    Oh, I get it, Woodson in a Packer and Favre always let’s you eat the biscuit…
    I bet if Sharper is still a fag in purple Revis wouldn’t own him? HOMER.
    Damn PFT wishes your mom would’ve swallowed, what a lazy bit*h

  18. Woodson is good he does get flagged 2 times a game, but he’s aggressive, and it also allows him to make the great plays. It’s not like his name is Ahmed Carroll

  19. Woodson had a terrific year in coverage, run support and big plays. This doesn’t mean Mr. Humble is wrong in his evaluation of Woodson getting away with holding. He is one of the best at the arm-bar, something they must be teaching in GB since the other DBs do it a lot as well. Some get called some don’t.
    In the second GB/Minnesota game, Woodson bit on the play fake and Berrian was breaking behind him in the open at the back of the endzone, when Woodson reached back and grabbed Berrian’s right arm so he couldn’t reach up and get the pass. Holding? Yes, but since the ref’s view of the grab was blocked by Berrian’s body it was rule incomplete. Even if it had been called it was better than giving up the TD.
    The great LTs in the game are good at holding and not getting caught as well. Just part of the game – sometimes it pays off, sometimes it gets caught.

  20. In case some of you people haven’t noticed Charles Woodson is gonna be this years Defensive Player Of The Year and that’s gotta be by a land slide! Yep, he’s earned it too, by being “thee” best player on one “thee” best defenses out there in the playoffs still…
    So, if anybody doesn’t like it then go suck one! (or two!)

  21. C-Wood is the schiznit. And I love how Pervy_Harvin can’t name one of his Viking’s players as better than Woodson. Only other team’s players. Way to support your team.

  22. How long does is it take you guys to approve a post? Big brother (NBC) got you humbled? Jeez. Post our stuff, we’re trying to chat. Damn.

    So how would you know?

  24. haha i love these idiots who post foolish comments and state them as facts. your insecurities about your favorite teams’ secondary are very transparent. don’t be jealous of chuck, even though I know that must be difficult

  25. The poster P Harvin is actually a girl so I would go light on her because she only knows how to hate and nothing about pro football. How could you expect her to, she probably lives in Mpls where they haven’t had a pro football team in years.
    Woodson should be in contention for MVP, he is that good.

  26. Man, I’m a huge Vikings fan, and I like a lot of the Packers players. Rodgers, Jennings on offense, Matthews, Collins and All-World Chaz Woody on Defense.
    Unfortunately the Packers go and ruin it by have the most ignorant, dillusional, drunken fans in the whole league.
    I’m hoping and praying that the Eagles beat the Cowboys and the Pack handles the Cards in the desert.
    Bring the Pack to the Thunderdome for Round III. The buildup will be amazing!

    I wouldn’t be so sure on DPOY, wasn’t Matthews supposed to be DROY?
    I think the Jets would have something to say about the best defense left.
    By the way turd, when you are emphasizing “the”
    , you don’t add an extra e to it.

    Oh yah,Mr. LoveBoat. Mn has plenty of young stars.Jared is 27 haha!Sidney is 23 AD is 24 Harvin is 21 etc.. Face it tool,Mr. Woodcock is about to be put out to pasture soon. You know,like Favre will be too. Two players pushing the the limits of play at their age for their position. Both doing awesome too.

  29. For those who hate on Woodson, you know nothing. He’s one of the top three shutdown corners in the entire league. He rarely gets burned for big plays, unlike Mr. Winfield.
    Percy Harvin just says random things to try to upset people. I just laugh and shake my head. Percy Harvin is one of the least knowledgeable people on PFT. He’s on here simply to annoy any fan not of the Vikings. And when you talk about him, he responds by saying that certain guys are in love with him because they’re picking on him. Percy could only wish he had that many guys in love with him. That’s his ultimate fantasy. A huge gang bang with 20 guys and he’s the bitch.
    And to the rest of you who think Woodson doesn’t deserve defensive MVP, look up his stats. Numbers don’t lie.
    Maybe if Jared Allen had more than two good games the entire year, he would have been considered.

  30. Woodson was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Month ….FOR THE THIRD TIME THIS SEASON.
    Amazing how stupid some of the haters are.
    Woodson is gold, as in green and gold.

  31. It’s a good thing fans don’t get votes on this or I’m sure every enemployed knucklehead fisherman in Minnesota would have put Jared Allen at the top of the list for Defensive POY.

    Emoney- Keep talking your fag shit, I’ve banged more skank than you have seen in your Hustler collection. Would like to kick your ass though!
    Oh,whats this on tv now? How Revis is hands down the best corner in football! Said by ex players that know! Enjoy your last season by Woodcock!

  33. “just_a_cigar”
    Hate to call you out on this one, because I agree with your takes, but in refrence to the “Love boat scandal”… But I didnt know Lake Minnetonka had “coastal waters”?

  34. Woodson has been playing hurt all year. He matches up against the opponents best wr, he blitzes, he jumps routes (and scores), and he is great in run support.
    Anyone who says Woodson sucks is a hater, and just plain stupid. Revis is a good cover corner, but Woodson straight up took games over earlier this year. A few that w/o him Packers do not make the playoffs.
    Percy, the only thing you are banging (why does a 40 year old act 12?) is your hand. Threatening violence over the internet? Wow, you are a winner. Talk, talk, talk, and nothing to back it up, SALLY. No football knowledge, no respect, and no intelligence, and yet you post more than Florio. Thank you for the entertainment that is your constant drivlle.

  35. I am convinced Pervy Harvin has no friends and is a complete nerd that acts tough and witty behind a his http://WWW…. he is a legend in his own mind and probably has conversations with his wife (hand)…. scary…

  36. Calisin- You are the front runner for biggest idiot on this site! Keep up the good work! Don’t hate because i am young at heart and life has beat you down! I exist to live not live to exist like so many of you! FYI Bet my IQ and football IQ dwarves you little man…don’t hate,try to relate!

    I’ve seen ths before, hmmmmmm. Oh yeah. 10 years ago. Some guy by the name of Deion Sanders said this. Heard of him?
    It’s about time Woodson lived up to the hype & potential he had coming out of college. 3 good years in a 12 year career. I wouldn’t hand him DPOY just yet, as Sharper is just as good, just a little more consistent. Either way, well deserved by either guy. Imagine if gb wouldn’t have tossed Sharper aside?

  38. Woodson is a stud and certainly the NFC defensive player of the year. Even as a Vike fan, I’d pick him way ahead of Allen. As for overall defensive player of the year, you gotta go with Revis though. Even the hardest core cheesers have to agree with that.
    Anyone with half a brain knows Woodson has some sort of mild separation. Big deal, it’s just pain — shoot him up and he’ll be fine. I played high school and college with separations. Paying the price now, but it didn’t make that big of a diffrence on game day.

  39. @ Calistin
    “revis is a good cover corner”
    he’s the best shutdown corner in the last 15 years.
    proposterious statement of the year contender with that one. wowsers.

    Sharper consistently misses a lot of big plays going for the pick. That’s something the stats don’t tell ya.

  41. @ aamys1
    Oops, my bad, I thought I rember it being on an ocean cruise. Thank you for the correction. 🙂

  42. “Packer fans …Please don’t cry when Jared Allen takes the MVP”
    Haha. Seriously? Jared Allen has been so overhyped this season it’s unbelievable. 7.5 of his 14.5 sacks came against the Packers while in 14 other games, all he could get was 7 sacks.
    You are just jealous that the Packers actually have stars on their defense unlike your team.

  43. As great as Revis is in coverage, I would have to say that Woodson does more for the defense than Revis. He blitzes he can play LB in goal line. Woodson should be DPOY, he has earned and I hope he gets the credit that he deserves. Give TT some props, last year our offense would get leads late, but the D would give it back the next drive, they went out and got a great Free Agent Coach in Capers, and though it took a few weeks for the Packers to accel at it. I am sure Packer fans have very little to complain about, and thanks to Woodson for being a key component of that. Reguardless if this is his last season or he has two or three more. Even with some retirements sprinkled in.

  44. LOL, Packers defense SMOKES dem viqueens! Only reason dem queens won in those first two meeting is cuz dah Pack’s QB had no protection and the D was new…
