Packers Notes

News and notes surrounding the Green Bay Packers.

--RB Ahman Green carried 23 times for 160 yards. "He's so fricking fast, physical and tough," Lions director of pro personnel Sheldon White said. "He's great."
   --LB Na'il Diggs suffered a sprained left knee in the second half and didn't return. Coach Mike Sherman didn't think the injury would be a major problem. Diggs, who has been suffering from a shoulder problem, was replaced in the dime defense by rookie Nick Barnett.
   --LB Nick Barnett had his best game, recording 12 solo tackles and two assists. He also made his first interception and broke up a pass playing in the dime defense for the first time. "It was the best one so far but there will be a lot more," he said.
   --TE Wesley Walls went out in the second half after he aggravated his bad hamstring. Coach Mike Sherman said Walls was his biggest injury concern coming out of the game.
   --WR Donald Driver continues to wear a neck brace after being injured in the opener against Minnesota. He didn't play Sunday, in all probability won't play in Arizona but has a good chance to play Sept. 29 in Chicago.
   --WR Robert Ferguson impressed the coaches with his toughness by starting at split end and playing into the second half before he aggravated the knee-ankle injury he suffered a week ago. "'Fergy' may be one of the toughest players on this team," coach Mike Sherman said.
