Pool report: Packers' team photo finally clicks

News flash: The Green Bay Packers' much-discussed Super Bowl team picture finally has been snapped.

According to Friday's pool report, the Packers took their team photo shortly before the start of practice. Everyone was in attendance, including players on injured reserve.

Two injured players, linebacker Nick Barnett and tight end Jermichael Finley, complained last week when it looked like the photo would be taken before they were scheduled to join the rest of the team in the Dallas area.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy called his team "loose but confident" going into Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

"The one thing you want to see in your football team is that the players have maintained confidence throughout the process," McCarthy said. "Our guys have done that. They totally believe what's in front of them. They believe in what they've seen on film. We respect Pittsburgh, but we feel that this is our time and Sunday will be our night."

Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden, who is recovering from an ankle sprain, is listed as questionable.

"We'll take Erik up to the game and see what happens," McCarthy said. "I have a good feel for what he can and cannot do. Sunday I'm going to trust him and the medical staff to make that call."

Frank Zombo would start if Walden is unable to play or is limited.

Wide receiver Donald Driver was held out of team drills for the second consecutive day because of a quadriceps strain, but he is expected to play and was listed as probable. Zombo (knee), left tackle Chad Clifton (knees) and offensive lineman Jason Spitz (calf) also are probable.

The Packers will conduct a final jog-through Saturday morning at their team hotel.
