Packers To Play Woodson At CB Vs Bears

From: Wisconsin State Journal

Packers Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Woodson will return to his native position after a three-game tour of duty at safety, while second-year man Aaron Rouse is set to start in the safety spot Woodson had been occupying. “This is another opportunity for Aaron to be the starter,” coach Mike McCarthy said Saturday following practice. “When you get a chance to start, you need to perform. This is a performance business. The players clearly understand that.

We talk about job responsibilities and a number of things you need to reiterate during the course of the year, and this is a great opportunity for him to step up. That’s pro football. Injuries are part of our game, and we look for him to be impactful, which he has been in spots, but it’s the consistency of playing four quarters that’s going to be his challenge Monday night.” Rouse, who started in place of Atari Bigby while Bigby was out with a hamstring injury earlier this season, replaced Bigby at safety against New Orleans Nov. 24, then suffered an ankle injury and couldn’t finish the game.
