Found January 02, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Green Bay Packers were without safety Charles Woodson and wide receiver Randall Cobb during last weekend’s defeat to the Minnesota Vikings. However, the Packers expect to have both players return in time for Saturday’s rematch against Minnesota, reports Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. During his post-practice press conference on Tuesday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that Woodson had been cleared to return. Woodson has been out for most of the season after breaking his collarbone. Cobb, who missed the Vikings’ game due to an ankle injury, returned to practice Tuesday. McCarthy said he anticipates the dynamic playmaker will start against the Vikings. Cobb said he wanted to play last weekend, and he all but guaranteed he’d return for the playoffs following the game. While Cobb and Woodson were able to return to practice, wide receiver Jordy Nelson (ankle) and tight end Jermichael Finley (eye) were held out of Tuesday’s session.
