Notable News and Notes

Notable game/player news and notes prior to the start of week-three games.

The Packers headed into this weekend evaluating the progress of wide receiver Donald Driver. Driver did not have nay problems coming off a sprained neck and concussion suffered in week-one and is expected to suit-up for the Packers game today against the Arizona Cardinals.


Chargers wide receiver David Boston's heel injury is improving and he will play today. Boston could be a factor if head coach Marty Schottemheimer decides to throw the football. Baltimore starting cornerback Chris McAlister has been benched for this game due to a team rules violation. Boston will line up against veteran Corey Fuller today.
