NFL Injury Report:
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver was once
considered one of the premier players at his position in the National Football
League. His contribution dropped off considerably this year due to injuries and
ineffectiveness, and the veteran wide out is “leaning toward retirement,”
according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports.
Following a disappointing season in which he caught eight
passes and was inactive for one of the team's two playoff games, Driver is
leaning toward retirement, according to a person informed of Driver's thinking
on the matter.
The source Garafolo spoke with said an announcement of
Driver’s ultimate decision could come as soon as next week.
Driver, who will turn 38 next month, is the Packers’
all-time leader in receptions (743) and receiving yards (10,137). The veteran
has scored 61 touchdowns during his time with Green Bay.
However, his playing time was diminished this season due to
the presence of younger receivers, including Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Randall
Cobb and Greg Jennings, and he only caught two passes over the final two months
of the season.

GREEN BAY, Wis. It's never good news for an NFL player when he suffers a season-ending injury. But in the case of Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga, the silver lining is that it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been.
Bulaga injured his hip in Week 9 and was placed on injured reserve soon after. There was some question, though, over the type of hip injury Bulaga...
