As Packers receiver Donald Driver rode a cart into the locker room on Sunday, he feared the worst. But today’s news is very good.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said that Driver feels good today and likely won’t need to miss any games.
Driver said after the game that the leg pain caused by his collision with Broncos safety Brian Dawkins was intense, and he thought he had suffered a serious injury.
“What happened, the nerve shut the whole leg down,” Driver said. “When you get that bruise the whole leg swells up and that’s how it happened. [On the field] I was grabbing it thinking that was it, even [Dawkins] said he felt it himself.”
But today Driver feels fine, and he’ll be on the field Sunday night in Atlanta. He’ll be joined by running back Ryan Grant, who has been cleared to return after missing Sunday’s game with a bruised kidney.
