The Green Bay Packers defense suffered a mighty blow in its victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
Packers safety Charles Woodson broke his collarbone during the game against the Rams and FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Woodson will miss at least six weeks. Pacjers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the report of Woodson's injury.
This is the first season that Woodson has played safety after spending the first 15 years of his career lining up at cornerback.
Woodson's injury is just the latest in a long line of injuries for the Packers. Woodson joins B.J. Raji (ankle), Greg Jennings (groin), Nick Perry (knee), and Sam Shields (shin/ankle) among the starters with injuries.
Rookie safety M.D. Jennings is expected to replace Charles Woodson at safety for the time being.
