Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy has said that the
return of safety Charles Woodson, wide receiver Jordy Nelson, running back Alex
Green and tight end Tom Crabtree are “imminent,” according to Tom Silverstein
of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
"I'm hopeful a lot of those guys can get back. But
we'll see," McCarthy said a day after beating Tennessee, 55-7. "I
know Jordy, talking with him, he feels like he's very close. Charles, he's
waiting on information from the medical staff. He's very close. Alex Green, I
was surprised that he wasn't available for Tennessee just based on the way that
process, the result of the process, so he'll definitely be available."
Woodson is recovering from a broken collarbone and Green
from a concussion, while Nelson and Crabtree are both dealing with hamstring
While the Packers have clinched a spot in the playoffs, they
can still earn a No. 2 seed which would provide them with a bye. Green Bay
either needs to win against the Minnesota Vikings or a loss by the San
Francisco 49ers to clinch the No. 2 seed.
