Matthews, Woodson probable

It looks like the Packers will have the services of two of their impact defenders on Sunday against the Bills.

OLB Clay Matthews and CB Charles Woodson are both listed as probable for this weekend’s game. Matthews was limited in practice throughout the week as he’s still nursing a hamstring issue that forced him to miss the entire preseason. Woodson did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday to rest an ailing toe, but practiced fully on Friday and is expected to start.

Green Bay’s defensive line however, is short on bodies. Already without Johnny Jolly (suspension) and Justin Harrell (torn ACL week 1) they may also be without reserve DE Mike Neal (ques. – rib) after he could not practice Friday following a limited participation day Thursday. Starting DE Cullen Jenkins is also dealing with a broken hand, but practiced on a limited basis all week and is listed as probable.

Added to the Packers injury report Friday was starting LG Daryn Colledge who did not practice due to illness. He’s listed as questionable. Also questionable is starting FB Korey Hall, who did not practice Friday due to a hip injury. If he can’t go it would leave Green Bay with just three players for their offensive backfield that know the playbook in Brandon Jackson, John Kuhn and Quinn Johnson. The team just signed Dimitri Nance off the Atlanta practice squad on Tuesday.

Starting LT Chad Clifton (knee) is listed as probable after practicing fully on Friday.
