Charles Woodson: Packers Veteran CB Leaves Super Bowl XLV With Injury
Charles Woodson Comes Down Awkwardly On Incomplete Pass
Charles Woodson, last year's Defensive Player of the Year and the only defensive player to ever win the Heisman Trophy, has left Super Bowl XLV and has headed to the locker room with an injury.
The Green Bay Packers veteran cornerback got up gingerly after coming down awkwardly on his side on an incomplete pass from Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Woodson laid out in an attempt to deflect the pass, and it looked like he may have hurt his left side when he landed on it.
Moments later, Roethlisberger took advantage of Green Bay's depleted secondary with a touchdown pass to Hines Ward to cut the Green Bay lead to 21-10.
The game is just now heading to halftime, so we shall see if Woodson is good to go by the time the second half rolls around.
Fellow cornerbacks Nick Collins and Sam Shields also left the game with injuries, so it goes without saying that the Packers might have trouble holding on to their lead if all three are out of the game for extended periods of time.
