GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Will Blackmon's second NFL season will end just like his first - on injured reserve.

The Packers' second-year cornerback suffered the fourth significant injury of his 18-month pro career when he broke his right foot in practice.

Coach Mike McCarthy revealed the injury following yesterday's practice.

Blackmon was covering a receiver during the final 11-11 team period of yesterday's practice when they got their feet tangled up.

The injury is the latest in a string of bad luck for Blackmon, who came back after breaking the same foot in spring of 2006 but ended last season on the injured reserve list after breaking a rib.
