    FROM USA TODAY:

    Packers WR Ferguson reinjures knee in practice
    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — One day after returning to practice from a knee injury, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Robert Ferguson was carted off the field near the end of practice Friday after injuring the same knee. Ferguson missed the last three games after suffering a torn lateral-collateral ligament in his left knee during a 23-20 loss at Minnesota Oct. 23.
    Team spokesman Aaron Popkey said late Friday afternoon that Ferguson would be evaluated further Saturday.

    Coach Mike Sherman, who wasn't made available to reporters Friday, will update Ferguson's status during his scheduled news conference after practice Saturday.

    "It's just bad luck. There's nothing we can do about it," receiver Donald Driver said of the spate of injuries to offensive players this season. "How do you get good luck? Do you need to do something, give somebody a gift or something? I don't know. But, right now, it just seems like it's not going our way."

    Ferguson returned to practice on a full-time basis Thursday and declared himself ready to resume playing Monday night, when the Packers (2-7) host the Vikings (4-5) in the rematch of NFC North rivals. He was listed as questionable for the game before Friday's incident.

    "It was almost at the end (of practice)," receiver Antonio Chatman said. "That's what makes it even worse. We had only like two more plays left. It was a freak accident. It's crazy."

    Ferguson was taken by cart from the practice facility across the street to the Lambeau Field training room to have the knee examined by the medical staff. Ferguson was downcast, with his head lowered, as the cart passed reporters waiting outside the locker-room area after practice.

    According to Chatman and accounts from other players, Ferguson sustained the injury while running a deep go route along the sideline.

    Chatman said quarterback Brett Favre overthrew Ferguson, and Ferguson was pulling up but rookie safety Nick Collins didn't see the ball and bumped Ferguson, whose knee buckled.

    Collins had little to say about the contact with Ferguson.

    "Accidents occur at practice. That's all it was, an accident," Collins said before leaving the locker room.

    Since Pro Bowl receiver Javon Walker sustained a season-ending torn ACL in his right knee in the season-opening loss at Detroit on Sept. 11, it's been one serious injury after another for the Packers offense. Ferguson had filled the starting void for Walker until suffering his initial knee injury.

    Promising rookie receiver Terrence Murphy also was lost for the rest of the season because of a spinal-cord bruise sustained in Week 4.

    Then, in back-to-back games last month, No. 2 running back Najeh Davenport (broken ankle) and Pro Bowl running back Ahman Green (torn thigh tendon) sustained injuries that knocked them out for the balance of the season.

    Running back Tony Fisher, who had been elevated from third string to starter after Davenport and Green were hurt, has missed the past two games with a broken rib. Fisher returned to practice Thursday and expects to play Monday.

    While Fisher was out, undrafted rookie Samkon Gado emerged as the fifth starting running back of the season and earned NFC offensive player of the week honors after a 25-carry, 103-yard, three-touchdown performance in the 33-25 upset at Atlanta last Sunday.

    Also, Pro Bowl tight end Bubba Franks missed about three games earlier in the season because of a knee injury. Top backup David Martin has been sidelined the past three games because of a strained groin. He, too, returned to practice this week and is expected to play Monday.

    The rash of injuries has taken a mental toll on the players as they try to wage a late-season push and make a run at a fourth straight NFC North title. The last-place Packers trail front-runner Chicago by four games.

    "It's almost like you're praying every day that nobody else goes down; (but) it's like you almost expect somebody to go down because people are getting hurt so much," said Chatman, who has started the past three games in Ferguson's place. "It's like you can't shake this hurtin' bug right now. Everybody just keeps dropping like flies."

    Ferguson had his season cut short last year, missing the last three games, after he sustained head and neck injuries from a clothesline hit by Jacksonville safety Donovin Darius on Dec. 19. Ferguson was temporarily paralyzed after the hit.

    NOTES: Linebacker Robert Thomas (quadriceps), cornerback Michael Hawkins (ankle) and defensive tackle Corey Williams (calf) didn't practice Friday. Thomas has yet to practice this week and is questionable to play Monday. Hawkins, who practiced Thursday, also is questionable. Williams has been sidelined since suffering his injury Nov. 6 and is doubtful for Monday. ... Nose tackle Grady Jackson returned to practice after being rested Thursday.

    I feel bad for him. He's a special teams demon, works really hard, does everything the Packers ask him to do, and now this....

    I hope he gets healthy enough to play soon. The receiving corps could really use him.

    We will find out Monday if he is playing or not. We do not know how serious the re-injury of the knee will be. The Packers can win without him.

    Seemed a little too soon to be trying to return to football after tearing a ligament. I thought those things needed a couple months to heal.

    I'm afraid that he just will never contribute much. When he was healthy he wasn't a barn-burner. Time to replace him.

    It's sad he got injured again. And the trend of healthy playrs continues to drop. It is a tough year.

    Looks like another one of Sherman's brilliant GM move's didn't pan out....

    Wasn't this the guy who was supposed to be one of "FAvre's premiere weapons...?"

    This guy has bascially sucked since he got here and it's either time to cut him or trade him for a third rounder or something...if anyone would go for it....

    All the injurys really stoped him from developing into something consistant. It's just to bad.

    Actually, I believe Ferguson was taken in WOLF's last draft. (I could be mistaken). You can't say that Fergy was a bad draft choice either. The guy has some talent, but he just has had bad luck with injuries. It's not his fault he got clotheslined last year, nor is it his fault he tore a ligament in his knee this year. It's really too bad he got hurt again....

    Just another time P@ck66 can bring Sherman's fault into any thread. I thought this thread was about Fergy re-injuring his knee for God's sake...geez.

    my point was that neither Wolf nor Sherman got Favre the "weapons" at receiver that they promised....

    P@ck66...you really are unbelievable. BTW, notice Harris is doing pretty well this year...Chad Johnson considers him #2 cb in the NFL, but of course you overlook that and the only thing you know how to do is piss and moan about MS. Stop bringing everyone's morale down and be positive for a freaking change!

    Walker, Driver, Rison, Freeman, Glenn, Brooks, and burrito burns...all good receivers...let it rest.

    Injuries are not something to be held over a GM's head, UNLESS the player was taken knowing he was injury prone and had numerous injury problems in college.

    Sounds like Fergy's knee isn't as bad as previously thought. He may play on Monday night. We'll see....

    Proof the more you do something the better you get. Often injured so he gets faster at healing :)

    All you posters who were negative about Furgeson's injury were a bit premature. In Sunday's Green Bay Press-Gazette in Packer's notebook by Pete Dougherty. "Wide Receiver Robert Ferguson didn't aggravate his left knee injury as badly as it appeared Friday and has a chance of playing for the Green BAy Packers on Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings. When Fergeson collided with safety Nick Collins late in Friday practice, the packers feared he'd again torn the lateral-collateral ligement, an injury which kept him out of of the last three games. But on Saturday the team's medical staff determined that Ferguson's knee was stable and he'd only aggravated a bruised knee." unquote------Now you posters who willing to write off Furgeson so quickly on this topic, hopefully have learned a lesson . But I doubted it!!! Negative is and Negative does!!!

    It seems like Fergy and Davenport can never stay healthy enough to take advantage of the opportunities they get. They both show flashes of potential, but can't ever seem to stay on the field. They kind of tease you into thinking they could become major players, then always seem to have some kind of setback.
