Receivers Determined To Return


The Green Bay Packers injury report lists wide receiver Robert Ferguson as probable, meaning there's a 75-percent chance that he'll play in Sunday's Wild Card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

But Ferguson himself thinks his odds are even better than that.

"It's a 100-percent chance that I will play," Ferguson said Thursday afternoon. "It's not even a question if I play or not. Just give me time to heal as much as I can before I go out there and play, but I will definitely play, regardless."

Ferguson was held out of last weekend's game against the Denver Broncos with an Achilles tendon contusion stemming from the Oakland game, Dec. 14, and hasn't practiced this week.

Meanwhile, Donald Driver (ankle) and Javon Walker (knee/hamstring) were held out of practice Wednesday, but returned to action Thursday.

All three expect to be in the lineup Sunday.

"It's nothing that's going to hold us back," said Walker, who leads the team with nine touchdown receptions. "We're obviously banged up, but (it's) nothing that's going to stop us at this point.

"We've put in too much work, too much effort this season to stop now."
