NFL Injury Report:
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.

"Alex Green, I was surprised that he wasn't available for Tennessee just...
The Green Bay Packers had to turn to a player from their past last week to handle the running back duties, Ryan Grant.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers veteran defensive back Charles Woodson has been ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale in Minnesota, missing his ninth consecutive game.

Packers defensive back Charles Woodson still thinks he will be able to play when the playoffs begin. If he does, he wont have any more regular-season games to break himself back in.
The Packers ruled out Woodson for the ninth straight game since he broke his collarbone on Oct. 21 against St. Louis. Including the bye week, Woodson will have had 10 weeks to heal.
Packers receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) practiced Thursday.Fantasy Spin:Nelson (46-658-6) has missed the last three games and most of a fourth due to a hamstring injury but coach Mike McCarthy said the receiver is "very close" to returning. Randall Cobb is questionable for Sunday so Nelson could return to a big role in Week 17.
Getting a week off sounds great to the Green Bay Packers.
It's looking even better now, too.
The Packers moved up to the No. 2 seed in the NFC on Sunday with their 55-7 thrashing of the Tennessee Titans and Seattle's victory over San Francisco. Beat the Minnesota Vikings next weekend, and the Packers (11-4) can spend the first week of the playoffs parked on the couch.
Jordy Nelson returns after missing the last three games; decision on Randall Cobb coming Saturday; Charles Woodson will miss his ninth consecutive game.
