According to reports, veteran defensive back Charles Woodson was given the go-ahead to return to the field for the Packers this weekend after missing the past nine weeks recovering from a broken collarbone. Woodson suffered the injury in Week 7 after diving to try and break up a pass against the St. Louis Rams.
Woodson spends most of his time at safety for Green Bay where he had 38 total tackles with one interception and a forced fumble prior to the injury against the Rams this season. He also adds a strong veteran presence to an experienced Packers team targeting a playoff run to the Super Bowl.
The last time the Packers were in the Super Bowl in 2011, Woodson was forced out of the game with a broken clavicle.
The Vikings and Packers kickoff at 7 p.m. CT on Saturday night.
