The Green Bay Packers are hopeful that receiver Donald Driver's foot injury is not too serious.
Driver was hurt Thursday night in the Packers' 21-13 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars after making a 12-yard reception late in the second quarter.
Jaguars safety Sammy Knight rolled up on Driver's right leg and the Packers' two-time Pro Bowler immediately reached for his foot. Driver was aided off the field and did not return.
Driver was not available in the locker room for comment Friday, and general manager Ted Thompson remained quiet on the specifics of his top receiver's condition.
Bills extend All-Pro end
Pro Bowl defensive end Aaron Schobel signed a contract extension with the Buffalo Bills that is potentially worth about $50.5 million over the seven-year deal.
The deal includes $20 million in guaranteed money and locks Schobel up through 2013, extending his current contract for four additional years. The new deal was reached after Schobel earned his first Pro Bowl selection last season, and now makes him the team's highest-paid player.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver David Boston was arrested and charged with driving under the influence after police found him passed out behind the wheel of a sport utility vehicle.
The 29-year-old was found slumped over the steering wheel of a red Range Rover on Thursday evening, police said.
The SUV was running and in drive. An officer woke up Boston, who said he was headed to Tampa International Airport.
