List of injured reaches 19

Good thing there was only one practice scheduled for Sunday and just a special-teams affair this morning, because 19 of the Packers' 91 players did not take to the field on Sunday afternoon.<p>

Luckily for the Packers, none of the latest additions to the list of the walking wounded appears to be of dire consequences. The biggest name on the list is wide receiver Javon Walker, who arguably has been the Packers' best player this fall. Walker suffered a quadriceps injury while hauling in team highs of five catches for 78 yards and a touchdown during Saturday night's scrimmage.

"I think it was just fatigue in his quad, and it tightened up on him," said Sherman, who wasn't sure if Walker would be ready for Tuesday's full-squad practices.

The most serious injury belongs to defensive end Tyrone Rogers, a late addition to the training camp roster who is in the hunt for a backup position. The former Cleveland Brown suffered a sprained medial-collateral ligament in a knee. Sherman said Rogers is out indefinitely.

Quarterback Brett Favre earned a day off to rest his arm after throwing 27 passes — with 21 completions covering 249 yards and five touchdowns — on Saturday night.

Starters remaining out of action are tight end Bubba Franks (chest), center Mike Flanagan (knee), left guard Mike Wahle (knee) and nose tackle Grady Jackson (knee). Key reserves still out of action are quarterback Craig Nall (hamstring), cornerback Joey Thomas (knee), defensive tackle Donnell Washington (foot) and defensive end Chukie Nwokorie (hamstring).

Monday's special-teams practice runs from 8:45-9:30 a.m., and two-a-days return Tuesday with 8:45 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. sessions.
