Donald Driver won't play this week

It's true: Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver will miss his third game in the past 10 seasons Sunday night because of a quadriceps injury. Driver indicated as much during a radio interview Tuesday, and on Wednesday, coach Mike McCarthy ruled Driver out of the Packers' prime-time game against the Dallas Cowboys.

McCarthy said Driver will miss "at least" one game, but next week's bye gives Driver two weeks to rest the injury before the Packers' next game.

"Just playing the last two weeks has made it worse," McCarthy said. "But just speaking with Donald again this morning, I think he'll be ready once we come off the bye. That's what we're shooting for. It's something he has been dealing with the past month and it is best to shut him down."

Driver has caught 28 passes for 307 yards and three touchdowns this season. He also leads the Packers with four drops, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
