The Facts: Franks suffered a scratched cornea in his right eye Tuesday night and hasn't worked since. "I still can't see real good out of it," Franks said. "In my line of work you need both eyes, especially with Brett (Favre) throwing the ball."
Diehards Line:Of course, a player with as tenuous grasps on a roster spot as Franks can't afford to miss a lot of time. ... Working in his favor, fellow tight end Tory Humphrey was placed on injured reserve. On Wednesday, Humphrey underwent surgery to repair the broken ankle that he suffered July 28.
