Veteran wide receiver Donald Driver gave fans a scare when he was seen hobbling off the field late in yesterday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles, which head coach Mike McCarthy later described as a knee bruise in his post-game press conference.
McCarthy then helped assauge any fears during his Monday's press conference saying that Driver shouldn't miss any practice time going forward, or game time for that matter.
According to the official Twitter account of the Green Bay Packers:
Driver's bruised knee won't stop him from practicing or playing in Atlanta, McCarthy said.
The concern level with Driver was heightened yesterday because of his injury history this season with a quadriceps strain that forced him to be inactive for one game this season and limited him in two other games in which he was held to zero receptions.
His streak of 133 consecutive games with at least one reception was broken in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings, due in part to injury.
Prior to sustaining his bruise yesterday, Driver led the team in receptions and receiving yards with five for 56 yards.
