Morning roundup: Woodson's loss might be manageable

Oct. 24, 2012
 

As Pete Dougherty points out in this analysis -- http://pck.rs/ShjXyS -- the loss of Charles Woodson a couple of years ago probably would have been devastating for the Packers' defense.

Now, losing Woodson to the broken collarbone he sustained late in Sunday's game at St. Louis might be manageable.

Dougherty wrote: "It still might be a stretch to say the Packers won’t notice Woodson’s absence now that he’s 36 years old, though that can’t be ruled out. But at minimum, with the way several of their young defensive backs are performing, the difference between playing with and without the likely future Pro Football Hall of Famer should be small."
