    -- More on Walker's Injury --
    Mon Aug 8, 2005 --from FFMastermind.com

    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Packers WR Javon Walker suffered a pulled right hamstring after reaching out for a deep ball thrown from QB Brett Favre and did not return to practice. Walker was down on the ground after nearly hauling in a pass over rookie CB Mike Hawkins during an early 11-on-11 drill. After about a minute, Walker limped off the field and walked gingerly along the sideline the rest of the practice. "It was more precautionary than anything," HC Mike Sherman said. "His hamstring was sore. He didn't pull anything or strain anything, it's just sore. He felt it tighten up on him, but it was more precautionary than anything." Sherman did not say whether Walker would return to practice today.

    hopefully Sherman's comments are on the level and not just media damage control...

    Walker Plans To Suit Up Against Chargers
    Wide receiver Javon Walker missed both of Monday practices but vowed to return for Thursday's preseason game versus the San Diego Chargers.

    "I'm definitely playing," he said.

    On Sunday Walker ran a deep pattern against rookie cornerback Mike Hawkins. After the ball extended just past his reach, he lay on the turf with a sore hamstring before heading inside the Don Hutson Center.

    His hamstring has already started to heal.

    "It's feeling a little better," he said. "I'm going to get treatment all today.'

    The grind of training camp with the heat, the extra repetitions of two-a-day practices and few rest days makes such injuries common place.
    "It's more fatigue settling into muscles you're consistently working," he said. "The body is not made to go through what you go through every day."

    Walked moved around well along the sidelines on Monday. Had it been a regular season game, he likely would have likely played, but the Packers did not want to risk further injury.

    "From a precautionary measure the doctor suggested he sit out today," Sherman said.

    The sky is still above us. This was from Packers.com

    Ageed, especially in preseason you never know what to think of injuries because the teams need to be secretive in case they need to replace some player by trade or waiver pick up. Actually they seem to be intentionally misleading at times.

    If Javon plays against the Chargers I would expect only a few series and no long patterns. Ease him back. No rush here.
