Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver was limited in practice with a quad injury on Friday, but coach Mike McCarthy
expects Driver to play on Sunday.
Driver injured his calf during practice on Wednesday. He suffered a quad injury earlier in the season and has bothered him off and one the rest of the way.
McCarthy said he would be surprised if Driver didn’t play on Sunday. He said Driver would have practiced on Friday if he would have let him.
Driver knows the offense and has had a whole week to prepare the current game plan. If anybody can miss preparation time and be OK for the game, it would be Driver.
Packers linebacker Erik Walden (ankle) was limited. He is listed as questionable on the injury report and a decision on his availability will be made on game day.
Steelers starting center Maurkice Pouncey didn’t practice on Friday and will not play in Sunday’s Super Bowl. He’s been sidelined by a high ankle sprain that he suffered in the AFC championship game against the Jets.
Doug Legursky will make his first career start at center in his place.
Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith (triceps) was limited in practice and has been ruled out.
