Charles Woodson returns to practice
Woodson sustained a concussion in Sunday's victory over the Giants. Packers coach Mike McCarthy says Woodson's limited participation Wednesday was part of the protocol a player must complete before returning to action.
McCarthy says he expects Woodson to play Sunday against Oakland.
Packers guard Josh Sitton has been ruled out because of a knee injury, and tackle Chad Clifton continues to sit out with hamstring and back issues. The status of inside linebackers A.J. Hawk and Desmond Bishop is unclear; McCarthy says Hawk is closer to returning than Bishop. Both have calf injuries.
Running back James Starks did not practice because of knee and ankle injuries.
