GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver has missed practice for the second straight day but still expects to play in Sunday night's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Driver has a lingering quadriceps injury but the durable veteran says, "If you've seen my history, I will play."

Linebacker Clay Matthews was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday and coach Mike McCarthy is optimistic he will be able to play after sitting out last Sunday's loss to Miami with a sore hamstring.

Cornerback Al Harris and safety Atari Bigby continued to make progress in their return from the team's physically unable to perform list, and McCarthy says the team could wait until Saturday to decide if they will play against Minnesota.
