    last I heard, its a foot sprain and he is in good spirits. I watched the post game press conference by McCarthy. I hope its nothing more serious too.

    I think my heart stopped when Driver went down. Im glad its only a sprain and not a break. Hes a tough one so he will be back soon.

    I wasn't watching the game, but when I saw this thread my heart dropped to my knees.

    I'll go and do my happy dance knowing the injury isn't too serious.

    Depending on where the sprain is and its severity... we might have a less than 100% Driver for a good portion of the year.. a sprained arch hurts like a bugger and would affect him when planting or cutting on the routes... hoping for a mild sprain away from the arch...

    Different prespective on this... this may help get Greg involved more in practices and games since he will need to shift into a different role. If DD recovers early in the season, this may be a good thing..... looking for that silver lining..

    Well the football gods like us today :)

    That is why I think with Camp Lite that MM has chosen, we won't see much from the frontline players next week Vs Titans.

    See what people don't know is that Greg Jennings has supernatural powers.

    He was obviously ticked off that he wasn't seeing as many balls thrown his way as he'd like, so in a moment of uncontrolled anger, he sprained Driver's ankle.

    But no to worry! Gregorious is the consummate professional teammate, he made sure the injury was nothing too serious.

    He just wanted to send a message to the coaching staff to get him more reps so he can be in top shape when the season opens, because should DD go down during the season, then Gregorious will be able to step in and we won't miss a beat.

    I for one am glad Jennings did what he did.

    AADP speaks truth. Driver should be thankful he still has legs.

    Great news, all!
    I was about to jump out of my office building when a co-worker read that he'll be ready for the first regular season game.
    Whew! That was close.

    I'm happy Driver is healthy and good. He's a good guy, although I was kind of looking forward to seeing how Jennings and Jones did as starters.

    I'm glad we can wait for that though lol

    Jennings DOES have supernatural poweers.

    Once he was on his way into the stadium and he made a bunch of pigeons levitate... But nobody cared.
