The Packers defense was dealt a serious blow on Sunday when Charles Woodson suffered a broken collarbone against the Rams. As reported by Jay Glazer on Twitter, Woodson will miss six weeks due to the injury.
Woodson, a former fourth overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft, has been one of the most dependable players on the Green Bay defense over the past seven seasons. The fifteen year veteran has 55 career interceptions with 11 picks returned for touchdowns. His loss from an already suspect defense that has allowed the 15th most points to opposing quarterbacks, with certainly be a big hit to the Packers.
M.D. Jennings, the Packer made famous by the blown touchdown call against the Seahawks, will start at strong safety in Woodson’s absence.
