Cowboys vs. Packers: Green Bay star players with injuries plan to play

New, comments

More news on the Packers injury front, it looks like most of their stars are going to try and play.

Nick Collins, who has missed the past three game with a left knee injury, has returned to practice and will be back in the starting lineup for a game that could determine home-field advantage in the NFC playoff bracket.

Left cornerback Charles Woodson, who injured the big toe on his right foot during a punt return in the Packers' victory at Detroit on Thanksgiving, is expected to play but is still listed as questionable.

Here’s more from another article.  

Cornerback Charles Woodson and end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila are questionable for the game, according to coach Mike McCarthy, but Woodson completed the jog-through portion of practice and Gbaja-Biamila pronounced himself ready to play.

Mark Tauscher missed practice again, but McCarthy said his sprained ankle is better than last week, meaning he'll probably be in his usual spot at right tackle.

That’s cool, it will be a straight-up battle of the best two teams in the NFC.

Jerry Jones proclaims this the biggest game in Dallas since the 1995 season.

"It's certainly the most significant game at this stadium since the last time we played Brett Favre and Green Bay in the NFC Championship Game," Jones said, referencing the 1995 win that propelled the Cowboys to Super Bowl XXX."

The Romo/Favre comparisons just won’t quit. Get your fill here and here.
