GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby expects to miss between four and eight weeks after having ankle surgery earlier this month, putting his availability in serious doubt for the team's Sept. 12 opener at Philadelphia.
Bigby says it would be "very disappointing" to start the season on the team's physically unable to perform list. But even if he only missed four weeks after the surgery, he would only have a week to get ready for the regular season.
Bigby had surgery on his troublesome left ankle Aug. 6. If he begins the season on the physically unable to perform list, he would miss the first six weeks of the season.
