Packers' Woodson cleared to play

Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Green Bay Packers defensive back Charles Woodson has been medically cleared to play in Saturday night's playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Woodson has been out since breaking his collarbone against St. Louis in Week 7. He sat out the final nine regular-season games, giving the bone time to heal.

"I just think having Charles Woodson back on the field helps our football team," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said on Tuesday. "Just what he's meant to our defense and his playmaking ability, his ability to make plays around the line of scrimmage. He's extremely productive."

The 15-year pro had 38 tackles, 1 1/2 sacks and an interception before the injury.
