03:21 PM ET 10.22 | The Green Bay Packers received some bad news today when they learned that perennial All-Pro defensive back Charles Woodson will miss at least six weeks with a broken collarbone. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports passed along the news today via Twitter: "Big loss for [the Packers]. Charles Woodson [has] broken collarbone -- out 6 weeks," Glazer tweeted. While Woodson's name and reputation may make this seem like a bigger loss than it really is on the field, it is never good to lose one of your team's veteran leaders -- especially when your team is trying to climb to the top of the NFC North. On the season, Woodson has 38 tackles, a forced fumble and one interception.

Was it the same collarbone he broke in the playoffs?

I'm not sure. I'll check JSonline

He's been largely quiet this year do to his age. He has shown up on the radar with a few timely penalties, but his leadership will be missed. Not like the Packers pass coverage has been anything to admire over the past few years.

I just checked and it IS the same collarbone, the Packers expect him back for the last 3 games of the season.

Age is catching up with him. Its not going to heal as quickly as they expect.

I think you're right.. We'll see how the rookie McMillan does taking his place defending the primary slot receiver.. He has 4 picks already this season and has played in every game.

I believe Woodson was set to retire after this season.

He's been quiet largely due to the transition to safety...true the Pack has been lit up a few times through the air but his presence is still a factor. He lines ppl up correctly and instincts are still sharp as ever. Not a Pack fan at all but I've been a huge Woodson fan since Michigan

If Ray-Ray and Woodson both retire after this season along with Gonzales... that's one serious HOF class right there.

No kidding.

I had a thought today. The Patriots are playing candy **** football, but they are all healthy. Suppose, just for the sake of diabolical Machiavellian thought, that Belichick knows he can win the AFC East without playing hard, and is plan is to be the last team standing because every other team in the playoffs will be hurting.

At which point he then gets his **** handed to him by Houston?







Hmmmm... Maybe.
