Packers’ Charles Woodson to Miss 6 Weeks With Broken Collarbone

Oct. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Green Bay Packers Pro Bowl safety Charles Woodson has a broken collarbone and will probably miss at least the next five games, including a Nov. 25 matchup against the New York Giants.

Woodson, 36, was hurt two days ago in the Packers’ 30-20 victory against the St. Louis Rams. X-rays revealed the extent of the injury yesterday and coach Mike McCarthy said Woodson would be out for approximately six weeks.

An eight-time Pro Bowl selection and the National Football League’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2009, Woodson’s 55 career interceptions rank second to Ed Reed of the Baltimore Ravens among active players. He’ll probably miss games against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings in addition to the Giants.

“Charles’s injury is significant, but our younger players are prepared and we’ll move forward,” McCarthy said yesterday at a news conference.

Woodson also broke his collarbone in the Packers’ Super Bowl win against Pittsburgh following the 2010 season.
