GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers cornerback Charles Woodson practiced on a limited basis Thursday -- not much beyond light running -- but coach Mike McCarthy said it's not a big deal and Woodson will start Sunday against the Bears in the NFC Championship Game.
Woodson has been nursing a toe injury through most of the season.
''Charles Woodson's fine,'' McCarthy said at his press conference Thursday at Lambeau Field. ''This is a normal practice week for Charles. Thursday is the day he goes through the jog through. He practiced yesterday. He'll practice tomorrow, so he'll be ready to go Sunday.''
McCarthy did not have his team practice outside Thursday. The Packers stayed in the Hutson Center across from Lambeau Field. They opened the doors to keep the place chilled.
''We were able to get the temperature down to 29°, so it was quality work, very crisp practice there,'' McCarthy said. ''I was very pleased with the work.''
The Packers reported that left tackle Chad Clifton, who was limited on Wednesday, went through a full practice Thursday, as did reserve cornerback Pat Lee.
