If fans on Facebook pull any weight in the clubhouse, Donald Driver could see some action with the Green Bay Packers this weekend.

The veteran wide receiver has been left on the inactive list by Packers coaches the past couple of weeks.

But more than 20,000 fans have "liked" a Facebook page that calls for getting Driver in the game Saturday night against the San Francisco 49ers. The coaching staff generally announces those decisions a couple of hours before kickoff.

Driver, a Packers fan favorite and reigning "Dancing With the Stars" champion, could be in the twilight of his career.

"Be classy, Packers. Make it work. Put Donald on the field," wrote one Facebook fan. Added another, "The way he is being treated this year has me feeling ashamed."
