Post-practice McCarthy: Woodson still out against Vikings

Dec. 26, 2012
 

Packers coach Mike McCarthy spoke to the media following practice on Wednesday evening. Here are some highlights from his news conference:

-Jordy Nelsons, Tom Crabtree, Jerel Worthy, CJ Wilson, Alex Green and Davon House returned to practice.

-Jordy Nelson looked good today. Iím curious to see how he feels tomorrow.

-You hope he can just go back in. I donít think anyone goes back seamlessly. Itís always an adjustment. I think itís important for us to be smart with Jordy.

-Charles Woodson is out for Sunday. Itís clearly based on doctorís recommendations. Hoped to have him back. Fourth week heís been practicing. Game heíd like to play in but based on Dr. McKenzieís recommendation.

-Josh Sitton has a concussion, but hopeful heíll be cleared tomorrow.

-Antoine Winfield, Iíve talked on him time-and-time again. Heís clearly one of my favorite players. Iíve always had a great respect for his game. Heís an outstanding tackler.

-I would think weíll finally have to make decision on players who are healthy being inactive.

-Practice was different. Itís part of the plan the last week of the season. Will have full padded Thursday practice.

-C.J. Wilson, tomorrow will be a big day for him. Thatís one of the reasons itíll be good for our linemen to go through padded practices.

-Randall Cobb, he hurt his ankle and knee in game. The plan for Randall is heíll be limited Wednesday and Thursday, and go through testing Friday.

-Mason Crosby has flu-like symptoms. Sent him home.

-Iíll say this about our medical staff. We have Purell throughout the building. We all have kids. We know the challenge of that. Dr. Gray does a full round with when someone has a case of.

-Dietrich-Smithís knee isnít a concern.

-When we were game-planning, we werenít sure what his availability will be. Plan to use all three backs against Vikings.

-Those guys are all going to play. Dezman Moses and Erik Walden are both playing good football. Frank Zombo played probably his best game on special teams. I like the fact we have a four-man rotation here.

-They have to do something about (the Pro Bowl). I think everyone is in agreement about that. Itís clearly a drop-off in game-day performance. Something needs to be done. Not sure what the answer is. What the options are, but there was no comparison to coaching in it after the 2008 season.
