GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Packers safety Charles Woodson has a broken collarbone and will be out approximately six weeks.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the severity of the injury Monday, a day after the team’s 30-20 win at St. Louis.

The 36-year-old Woodson broke his clavicle in the 2011 Super Bowl win over Pittsburgh. McCarthy says Woodson is nervous about his latest injury.

The Packers played without four defensive starters against the Rams. They host Jacksonville on Sunday.
