GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Just got upstairs from a stroll on Lambeau Field. From a weather perspective, this is about as perfect as you could ask for a football game. There hasn't been any rain, and the temperature is hovering around 60 degrees. It feels pretty good down there.
One note to pass along: During pre-game warmups, Minnesota quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was wearing a brace on his right knee. (He sprained his medial collateral ligament three weeks ago.) Jackson, however, didn't have his uniform pulled over the brace -- suggesting he still hasn't decided whether to wear it for this game.
It's at least a mildly relevant issue; Jackson isn't a running quarterback but generally feels more comfortable when he has full mobility. No matter how minor the brace, it's going to hinder him to some extent. The teams just went back into their locker rooms, where Jackson and athletic trainer Eric Sugarman will make a final decision on whether he wears the brace.
