In the Thursday Packers-Vikings injury report, the Vikings added two players — WR Percy Harvin (hamstring) and OT Ryan Cook (wrist) — to the list, while the Packers disclosed that starting CB Charles Woodson did not participate in practice for personal reasons. Both Harvin and Cook participated on a limited basis for Minnesota. The Packers added one player to the report for the first time this week — rookie OG-OT Marshall Newhouse, who did not participate in the practice due to a back injury.
Also not participating for the Packers was WR Donald Driver, who has been limited this week by a quadriceps injury. The only Vikings player listed who did not participate was S Husain Abdullah, who sat out with a concussion for the second straight day.
Packers players who participated on a limited basis Thursday are LB Brandon Chillar (shoulder), FS Nick Collins (knee), DE Cullen Jenkins (hand) LB A.J. Hawk (groin), LB Clay Matthews (hamstring), DE Ryan Pickett (ankle) and OT Mark Tauscher (shoulder).
Also participating on a limited basis for the Vikings were CB Chris Cook (knee), OT Chris DeGeare (ankle), QB Brett Favre (ankle/right elbow), LB E.J. Henderson (knee), TE Jim Kleinsasser (groin), CB Lito Sheppard (hand) and C John Sullivan (calf).
The way we see it
Driver's status is a bit of a concern, but in his press conference today, head coach Mike McCarthy indicated that he thought it would be surprising if Driver, who is widely considered the team's toughest player, were unable to play. The addition of Harvin to the Vikings' list is somewhat of a concern, as he has really started to come on as of late.
