Injuries hit young Packers receivers

Just two practices into Green Bay Packers Training Camp, three different receivers have gone down with injuries, including 7th round draft picks

Charles Johnson and Kevin Dorsey.

Undrafted rookie Sederrick Cunningham hurt his wrist on Friday and underwent surgery that same day.  He is out indefinitely.

Johnson suffered what’s been described as a minor knee injury and he could return to the field soon.  Dorsey appeared to have suffered a hamstring injury.  His status is unknown at this time.

Current Injury List

S Sean Richardson (neck), RB DuJuan Harris (knee), CB Casey Hayward (hamstring), LB Jamari Lattimore (illness), OL JC Tretter (ankle), OT Derek Sherrod (leg), DL Jerel Worthy (knee), CB Davon House (illness), S Chaz Powell (foot), DL Mike Neal (abdominal), WR Sederrik Cunningham (wrist), WR Charles Johnson (knee – dropped out), WR Kevin Dorsey (lower body – dropped out).

Donald Driver

Veteran wide receiver James Jones said he spent some time with recently retired Donald Driver down in Houston and reported that Driver is apparently having second thoughts about his retirement.  Driver has yet to file his retirement papers with the league.

It’s unlikely the Packers would want to bring Driver back after he hardly figured into their plans last year, catching just 8 passes for 77 yards.
