Driver injury report

According to a report from the Green Bay Packers, wide receiver Donald Driver has been diagnosed with a neck strain after suffering an injury in the Packers' loss to Minnesota at Lambeau Field Sunday.<P>

X-rays and scans performed at a Green Bay hospital were normal, according to Head Trainer Pepper Burruss.

Driver, who never lost consciousness after the fourth-quarter injury, will stay in the hospital overnight and will be evaluated again Monday morning.

Driver's status will be listed as "week to week," according to the team.

The receiver suffered the injury when he jumped to attempt a catch of a Favre pass with about 8:40 remaining in the game. He got his hands on the ball and began to reel it in when he lost control of his descent and fell awkwardly on his arm, head and neck. He was down on the field for several minutes before he was immobilized and taken from the field on a stretcher as the crowd saluted him with a standing ovation.
