GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers running back Vernand Morency will miss "a couple of weeks" of training camp with a knee injury.

So says coach Mike McCarthy.

McCarthy declined to elaborate on the injury, but did say it was "a little more serious" than the team initially thought.

Morency was hurt in the Packers' first practice on Saturday and the injury previously was described as a bruised knee.

Morency gained 421 yards in 96 carries last season as Ahman Green's backup.

Green signed with Houston in the off-season.
