Driver has sprained foot

Reports this morning are that Packers Pro Bowl receiver, Donald Driver, has a sprained right foot, which he suffered in last night's game against the Jags. The severity of the sprain is still unknown. Whether it is the dreaded Lisfranc injury (that's the name we couldn't come up with last night, by the way) which sidelined former Packers receiver Robert Ferguson for most of 2006 is yet to be seen apparently.

According to a report in today's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters in the post-game news conference about team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie assessment of Driver's injury: "Pat didn't seem that it was that (extensive) as far as the location on the foot. He just told me it was a foot sprain. (Driver) is in good spirits. I don't have a diagnosis as far as weeks."

Let's hope it is in fact just a few weeks and not months...or a season.
