BBAO: Driver had double knee surgery
By Kevin Seifert
We're Black and Blue All Over:
It takes some work to be 35 and still hold on to a starting receiver job in the NFL. Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver had double knee surgery in January, according to Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and hasn't been participating in organized team activities.
"I'm on that senior citizen program," Driver told Nickel.
On a more serious note, Driver said he played most of last season with a trapped nerve in one knee. He also had limited flexibility in the right knee and often wrapped it on the sideline to keep it warm.
There are no indications Driver won't be ready for training camp. But this year, it's taken him a little longer to get to that point. We'll cut him the senior citizen break on that one.
