Packers may make lineup change at center

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers won't have veteran safety Charles Woodson and receiver Jordy Nelson when they host Tennessee on Sunday.

Both players were ruled out Friday. Woodson, who practiced on a limited basis this week, hasn't played the last two months because of a broken collarbone. Nelson, who has been bothered by a hamstring injury, will miss a third straight game.

Left guard T.J. Lang returned to practice Friday and is probable to play after passing tests for a concussion that came to light after Green Bay's division-clinching win at Chicago last Sunday.

Coach Mike McCarthy says Evan Dietrich-Smith will probably start at center ahead of 14-year veteran Jeff Saturday.
