Woodson breaks leg

Raiders cornerback Charles Woodson suffered a broken leg in Sunday's game against Buffalo and will be sidelined 6-8 weeks.

Woodson was hurt in the first half and was taken to the locker room where tests revealed the damage. Woodson watched part of the game in the second half while wearing a protective boot on his right foot. He spoke with team trainers before going back to the team's locker room.

''It's broken,'' Woodson told Silver and Black Illustrated as he walked into the tunnel leading to the locker room.

Safety Derrick Gibson could also miss significant playing time after suffering what head coach Norv Turner described as a ''dislocated wrist.''
