Diggs out for a while

Linebacker sprains MCL in left knee

Linebacker Na'il Diggs suffered a sprained left knee during practice on Monday, Packers coach Mike Sherman said today.

Diggs has been a starting outside linebacker for the Packers since his rookie season in 2000. Diggs has been the second-leading tackler for the Packers in each of the last three seasons.

Sherman said that Diggs will be out for at least two weeks, and possibly longer. Diggs got caught in the bottom of a pile at the end of a play and his knee twisted. He was carted off the field.

Without Diggs, the Packers have inserted Hannibal Navies, who has started the last two seasons at outside linebacker for the Packers. Navies is playing opposite Ray Thompson, who signed as a free agent in April.
