Packers WR reinjured after one day back
Published November 19, 2005
GREEN BAY, Wis. - Packers receiver Robert Ferguson reinjured his left knee running a deep route near the end of practice Friday and was carted off one day after his return.
Ferguson, who appeared emotionally distraught, missed the past three games with a torn knee ligament. He is expected to be evaluated further today.
Safety Nick Collins, who ran into Ferguson on the play, told an approaching reporter in the locker room: "Don't even come over here; don't even ask me about that play."
The Packers said only that Ferguson aggravated the same injury for which he was already listed as questionable on the injury report. Because the injury occurred during practice, the Packers aren't officially required to update the report until today when they conduct their final full-fledged practice.
"He was going to be the starter Monday night (against the Vikings)," receiver Donald Driver said. "He wanted to fight back for this game. He was doing well. He practiced well. We hope he's ready for Monday."
BILLS: J.P. Losman will start at quarterback against the Chargers on Sunday after Kelly Holcomb missed his third straight practice since getting a concussion.
CHARGERS: Outside linebackers Shawne Merriman and Steve Foley returned to practice and both are expected to play against the Bills. Merriman sat out Thursday's practice with a migraine headache. Foley has missed the past two games with a strained abdominal muscle.
COLTS: Safety Bob Sanders (bruised knee) and receiver Brandon Stokley (groin strain) are expected to play Sunday against Cincinnati after missing practice time this week because of injuries. The defense and kick coverage squads could get another boost if linebacker Rob Morris can play after going through his first regular practice. He missed two games with an inner-ear infection.
DOLPHINS: Quarterback Gus Frerotte rejoined practice on a limited basis, an indication he'll probably start at Cleveland despite a sprained right index finger. Backup Sage Rosenfels remains an option for Sunday. Asked about his status, Frerotte responded: "What did coach (Nick) Saban say? Whatever he said, I agree with. It took me 12 years to figure out you never disagree with the coach." What Saban said: "If you had a gun and you put it to my head and said, "I'm going to shoot you if you don't tell me,' I probably would tell you. Absent the gun, I'm not going to say, because if I tell you I tell everybody."
EAGLES: Receiver Terrell Owens, suspended from the team two weeks ago after criticizing quarterback Donovan McNabb and the organization, appeared at a marathon arbitration hearing to decide whether his penalty should be lessened. Members of the Eagles' organization, including coach Andy Reid, also gave their accounts of the events. Arbitrator Richard Bloch is expected to make a decision in the next few days.
JAGUARS: Receiver Jimmy Smith practiced for the second consecutive day and was upgraded to probable for Sunday's game against Tennessee. Backup linebacker Pat Thomas won't play due to a hamstring injury. Running back Fred Taylor missed his third consecutive practice and remained doubtful with a badly bruised right ankle, and defensive tackle Marcus Stroud missed his third consecutive practice and remained questionable with a groin injury.
RAMS: Guard Adam Timmerman's streaks of 89 consecutive starts dating to 2000 and 184 consecutive games played dating to 1996 both likely will end Sunday. He has been held out of practice all week due to a season-long buildup of injuries, and will not start against the Cardinals. Interim coach Joe Vitt said Timmerman be available only in an emergency. Blaine Saipaia will get his fourth start of the season, at his third position.
REDSKINS: Receiver David Patten is out for the season after knee surgery. Former Gator Taylor Jacobs, injured for most of training camp, has only two catches in the regular season but will start opposite Santana Moss against the Raiders on Sunday. James Thrash remains the No. 3 receiver. Defensive tackle Cornelius Griffin (hip) did not practice and will probably miss his third straight game. Safety Sean Taylor (ankle) practiced and looks set to return after missing a week.
