Charles Woodson won’t play against Chicago


The Green Bay Packers will have to do without Charles Woodson for another week.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that team physician Patrick McKenzie didn’t feel it was in Woodson’s best interests to return to the field this week for the Packers trip to Chicago to play the Bears. Woodson has missed the last six games with a broken collarbone suffered against St. Louis in October.

Very frustrating day,” McCarthy said after practice via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “Charles was ready to play, he’s ready to go. Based on the information over the last two days, we’re going to hold him out of the game.”

Woodson practiced in a limited fashion last week but still has not been cleared for contact.

“This is in the best interest of Charles,” McCarthy said. “I know it’s disappointing, frustrating for him. He’s continuing to rehab; that’s basically where he was all day today.”

Woodson will have two more games against the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings to get back on the field before the playoffs.

    It’s because the rookie Chris Hayward is lighting it up.

    Well that’s some good news for us Chicago fans. i dont think any real Bear fan is expecting this game to go well.

    Good for us. You will likely still beat us tho. I believe the pack is a better team, but it sure would be nice to beat you guys for once.

    Maybe Charles should get a second opinion.

    After Woodson’s trash talking about Cutler, I was looking forward to the rematch. Too bad.

    Maybe if Woodson was still a good player this would be news.

    It’s not trash talking if it’s the truth. Cutler has been horrendous against the Packers and thrown many dumb passes that wound up being picked off. All the DBs did was acknowledge that they were going to get opportunities. DBs used to say the same thing about Favre when he was with GB and ya know what? They were right.

    As a bears fan, this is a relief. Whatever his age, Woodson has been a menace to the bears since he arrived in Green Bay.

    Bear down!

    Woodson has been getting a ton of penalties the past couple of seasons. He has lost his speed, and the only way he can keep up is to hang on for dear life. The Pack has learned to survive without him, so they’re only going activate him if he is 100%.
