Super Bowl Frenzy: Injured Packers To Make Team Photo
Next game: February 6th at Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Linebacker Nick Barnett, tight end Jermichael Finley and the rest of the Green Bay Packers' injured players will be in the team's Super Bowl photo after all.
A team spokesman says the much-discussed photo has been scheduled for next Friday, a timeline that will allow injured players to take part.
The photo originally was expected to happen at Super Bowl media day next Tuesday, causing Barnett and Finley to express disappointment through their Twitter accounts that they weren't going to be included. Injured players are not scheduled to join the team in the Dallas area until next Thursday and will be on the sideline during the Feb. 6 game against Pittsburgh at Cowboys Stadium.
The Packers list 16 players on injured reserve.
