McNabb's right wrist on injury report

Posted by: Mark Craig under Injury report, NFC, Visanthe Shiancoe Updated: September 7, 2011 - 3:52 PM

The surprise name on the first injury report of the season?

Quarterback Donovan McNabb.

But don't get too excited.

Although McNabb was listed as having a right wrist injury, he also had full participation in practice.

CB Asher Allen (toe) was on the report and was limited in practice. CB Chris Cook (hamstring) and TE Visanthe Shiancoe (hamstring) also are on the list, but had full participation.

Meanwhile, Steve LaCroix, team vice president of sales and marketing, announced there are about 3,000 tickets left for the Sept. 18 home opener against the Bucs. He said he "feels good about where we stand and remain confident that we will sell out -- and have this game locally televised as planned."

LaCroix also said there are about 7,000 tickets left for the Sept. 25 game vs. Detroit.

Single game tickets start @ $39, with the Green Bay home game available via  our “flex pack” where you purchase your choice of Tampa Bay, Detroit, Arizona or Oakland as part of a two-game package with Green Bay.
