The Green Bay Packers probably won't need long to shake off an ugly start to the preseason.
A long-term injury to linebacker Desmond Bishop would be a more significant setback.
Bishop hurt his right leg in the first quarter of the Packers' 21-13 loss at San Diego in Thursday night's preseason opener. Speaking to reporters after the game, Packers coach Mike McCarthy characterized Bishop's injury as a knee sprain, with potential damage to his hamstring.
McCarthy said Bishop's injury ''didn't look very good.''
Bishop was hurt when a group of players fell on his right leg. He was unable to put any weight on it as he was helped to the sideline.
