Packers Grant, Woodson expected to suit up vs. Cowboys

Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers should be in good shape for their Sunday night game against Dallas, listing running back Ryan Grant and cornerback Charles Woodson as probable on the injury report.
Injury reports around the league
The Packers are in good health heading into their mathcup with the Cowboys, but not all teams are as fortunate. Check out the Week 3 injury reports. More ...

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after practice Friday that Grant and Woodson would play Sunday. Grant went through the full practice after being off the field most of the week to allow extra recovery for a sore hamstring that has bothered him since early in the preseason.

"He looked good," McCarthy said. "I thought he had more bounce in his step. I thought he looked better this week than last week."

Woodson didn't practice the entire week to rest a broken right toe, but he was on a similar schedule last week and responded with one of the best performances of his 11-year pro career. Woodson intercepted two passes late in the game, returning the second for a touchdown to seal the Packers' 48-25 win at Detroit.

"I'd be surprised if he doesn't (play Sunday)," McCarthy said.

McCarthy added he's never coached a player who had the resilience of Woodson to miss significant time in practice because of injury and manage to play so well.

"To do it off of the film study and the meetings and the walkthroughs and things like that, I haven't seen anybody perform at that level," McCarthy said. "He's also experienced, too. He has a ton of experience and is a very smart football player. But, the ability to pull it all together and deal with the pain threshold and things like that, I think it's very unique what he's been able to do."

Woodson didn't play in the Packers' late-season loss at Dallas last year after injuring a different toe in the previous game.

The Cowboys exploited the Woodson-less secondary. Terrell Owens had seven catches for 156 yards and a touchdown. Patrick Crayton caught two touchdown passes. Tight end Jason Witten had six receptions.

The Packers will again be a starter down in the secondary Sunday. Safety Atari Bigby is their only player listed as out for the game (strained hamstring).

Aaron Rouse will start in Bigby's spot. McCarthy gave Rouse a vote of confidence after the second-year player had a couple of breakdowns in pass coverage after replacing Bigby in the second half last Sunday.

"The big thing for young players is to get those quality reps, whether it's during the week and ultimately in the game," McCarthy said. "With (Rouse's) ability to get the first-unit reps this week, that in itself will really help him.

"The one thing about Aaron is he's been very productive with the opportunities he's had, so we have full confidence in him."

McCarthy indicated center Scott Wells would be available in some capacity for the first time this season. Wells practiced the last three days after being out for two weeks because of a chronic back injury.

"I thought Scott had a very good week," McCarthy said. "He looked like his old self out there today. He came out of Wednesday and Thursday's practices pain-free. We'll see how Scott is in the morning, and we'll move forward accordingly."

McCarthy, who first wanted to meet with his assistants and the medical staff, hasn't decided whether to give Wells his starting job back right away.

"It's either start him, or he'll be the backup. Those are the two options," McCarthy said.

If Wells is in the starting lineup Sunday, Jason Spitz would move from center to right guard, where Tony Moll played the first two games.

Spitz said Friday he had a 50-50 split of reps at center and right guard in practice this week.

I was surprised how ineffective Grant was last week. I was expecting a bigger game from him against the Lions.

Grant will have a breakout game. I think all the Packers will be up for this game like Dallass was for the last game. I love Woodson. He is one tough SOB. I wish Bigby was playing. I was hoping to see him lay out TO more than once. Will the Hawk take to the air again this Sunday? I sure hope so.
I can hear the playcallers now. "Romo is down! Romo is down! It's doubtful he will return this game." Not that I'm hoping for an injury. Call it a gut feeling. It's the same feeling I had before my sons game Friday and I knew he would have a big game. I was right. He was awsome and so will the Packers be on Sunday. Rodgers will make believers out of the unbelievers.
