GREEN BAY - Packers safety Charles Woodson is back, and just in time for the playoff spotlight.
Woodson practiced in full Wednesday. He missed the Packers final nine games of the regular season due to a collar bone injury suffered against the St. Louis Rams on October 21.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Woodson allows the team get creative with its defensive schemes.
"He's an instinctive player at the line of scrimmage and the flexibility of playing him safety, nickel and dime...obviously Dom Capers and his staff are able to utilize in game planning," McCarthy said Wednesday. "We've always benefited from his versatility."
Elsewhere on the injury front, the Packers lost rookie defensive lineman Jerel Worthy for the season to a knee injury. Worthy left Sunday's game against the Vikings with the injury. Wide receiver Jordy Nelson is looking to come back from a knee injury, Nelson was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Running back Alex Green (knee) was a full participant, while receiver Randall Cobb (ankle) and running back James Starks (knee) were also limited.
