Packers cornerback Charles Woodson in fine form, despite pain
In Green Bay's Week 4 victory over Detroit, cornerback Charles Woodson again displayed the form of a future Hall of Famer.
Woodson's 48-yard interception-return touchdown provided the difference in the Packers' 28-26 victory. Woodson, the 2009 NFL defensive player of the year, also had three passes defensed and made the final three defensive plays on Detroit's final possession - one tackle and two passes defensed.
Woodson (toe) is among many Packers defensive players trying to play through pain, and he was listed as "limited" Thursday on the team's injury report. The Packers said Woodson did not practice Wednesday, but "Charles will play on Sunday, I think you can count on that," Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said of the five-time all-pro selection.
"He's one of our prime-time players on defense He's smart, he's tough. He does an excellent job of route combination and identification. And he has the ability, when he gets his hands on the ball, to find the end zone. He's just a very instinctive, smart football player."
