CB | Charles Woodson | Green Bay Packers | Injury
Green Bay Packers CB Charles Woodson (collarbone) said his fractured collarbone should take six to eight weeks to heal, according to Jason Wilde, of ESPNMilwaukee.com. Woodson added that surgery is not an option at this point. "We're just going to let it heal on its own. We figured that it may cause more damage if I were to put a plate in it right now, complications from a surgery, or maybe it not healing right with the plate on it so it's better to let it heal on its own," Woodson said. "If we had to do something later on we could, but we're not even going to chance it at this point … I think I will be like any other (bone) break that I've had. It's usually a six to eight week type of deal before it's totally healed so I guess I'm looking at the same timeline with this injury."
