Driver, Walden sit out Packers practice on Thursday

DALLAS (AP) -- Green Bay receiver Donald Driver missed practice Thursday because of an injured thigh and probably will miss another.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy told a pool reporter that Driver wanted to practice Thursday, but "I'm not taking any chances with him."

Driver missed a full game and parts of two others this season because of the same injury.

Linebacker Erik Walden also missed practice because of a sprained ankle. He was hurt in the NFC championship game, and he tested it in practice Wednesday. McCarthy said Walden is likely to sit out more practices.

The workout again was at the indoor facility at Highland Park High School. It lasted 1 hour, 45 minutes and was not in pads.
