For the first time seemingly all season, the Packers played a game and survived without any major injuries.
A week after losing linebacker Nick Barnett for the season with a knee injury, the Packers managed to go relatively unscathed in a 37-3 rout of the division-rival Bears at Lambeau Field on Sunday.
The only visible injury occured in the first half of Sunday’s game when WR Donald Driver was seen limping off the field, and then getting treatment on his left leg from team trainers. Driver returned to the field and finished the game with four catches for 60 yards.
“Donald Driver may miss a practice,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said during Monday’s press conference. “We’re probably going to give him a day this week to get back healthy.”
In other Packers injury news:
- Barnett is scheduled to have surgery on his right knee on Thursday.
- QB Aaron Rodgers — who has battled a shoulder injury for much of the season — was virtually untouched by the Bears defense. “This is the best Aaron’s felt coming out of a football game,” McCarthy said.
