Green Bay Packers safety Charles Woodson suffered a broken collarbone in the Packers’ 30-20 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
Woodson is expected to miss at least six weeks of action, which would see him return with around 3-weeks left in the season. McCarthy said he expects him to return this season and will give him every opportunity to do so.
It’s the same collarbone that Woodson broke in the Super Bowl, but McCarthy said this one isn’t as bad.
Woodson will remain on the Packers active roster and McCarthy said he fully expects the next players in line to step up and play better defense.
