Donald Driver not only feels great after he had double arthroscopic knee surgeries back in January -- he wishes he had the procedure years ago.
Driver was at the New Berlin Ale House Thursday night to support Packers teammate Greg Jennings for a pre-golf party. The two men, along with numerous Packers, will spend all day Friday golfing for Jennings' major fundraiser for Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity and the Greg Jennings Foundation; the goal is to raise $150,000 to pay for two Habitat homes, one in Milwaukee and one in Kalamazoo, Mich.
Driver said he hadn’t told anyone other than the Packers staff that he was playing with limited range and flexibility as well as pain last year. It wasn’t until last Wednesday, when Packers coach Mike McCarthy admitted, when pressed, that Driver and Nick Barnett had both had knee scopes. Both players had been out of offseason practices and working with a group of rehabilitating players.
Donald Driver must have a "fountain of youth" secretly hidden at his home. With the exception of last season (2nd half), his production has been consistent. However, at some point a drop-off should be expected. For now, he is a safe #3 WR in most fantasy formats.
