Torn pectoral muscle sidelines Packers' defensive end

Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers starting defensive end Vonnie Holliday will miss six to eight weeks with a torn pectoral muscle and starting safety Antuan Edwards is out for three to four weeks with a broken arm.

Holliday was hurt Sunday during Green Bay's 37-31 win at Detroit. Coach Mike Sherman said fifth-round pick Aaron Kampman likely will take Holliday's place.

In other injuries, right guard Marco Rivera and fullback William Henderson each sprained ligaments in their knees, but both could play Sunday against 3-0 Carolina. Tight end David Martin has a slight concussion.

Wide receiver Javon Walker is out with a bruised thigh muscle.


Running back Ahman Green will practice Wednesday after missing the game against Detroit.
