The news out of Green Bay continues to be positive regarding the the possibility of Pro Bowl CB Charles Woodson returning for Sunday’s NFC wild-card playoff game against the Cardinals.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy, who already said earlier this week that he expects Woodson to play, listed the six-time Pro Bowler as fully practicing Thursday.
“He took his normal reps, and he looks like he’s ready to go,” McCarthy said.
That’s not to say Woodson will be completely healthy. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Woodson told a pool of reporters that although he’ll be ready to play, he’s still in pain.
“It just hurts,” Woodson said. “At certain times you land in awkward positions or you get it extended in a way and you get a sharp pain. Sometimes it lasts longer than others. It’s just something you deal with.”
In fact, all of the Packers listed on Thursday’s injury report fully practiced, with the exception of backup SS Derrick Martin (ankle), who sat out for the second consecutive day.
