Green Bay Packers Injury Report: Donald Driver's Quad Still Question-Mark

The Green Bay Packers' injury report has taken a back seat to the Steelers' in recent days, as Maurkice Pouncey insisted he could go and then could not, in fact, go, but linebacker Erik Walden remains a game-time decision, and veteran receiver Donald Driver remains limited by a quadriceps injury that leaves him probable but plausibly limited.

Driver's quad injury bothered him throughout the second half of this season, cutting his 1000-yard season streak short at six; he had just 51 receptions for 565 yards, in his worst season since becoming a starter in 2002. Driver emerged just after the Packers' Super Bowl run in the late nineties, so if he can play at all he's likely to make a night of it.

Walden didn't practice Saturday, but he remains a game-time decision; the Packers might not know if he's ready until 2 PM, when they reach the stadium. Frank Zombo, who replaced the Packers' original starter and whom Walden eventually replaced, is likely to start in his place if he proves unready for Super Bowl kickoff.
