Greg Jennings was all ready to go out and cash in on his contract year. And then it all went to shit… or at least his groin did. The Green Bay Packers receiver is considering having surgery on what must be the slowest-healing groin injury in history.
Update: Jennings will have surgery. It’s scheduled for Oct. 30 and he’ll miss three to six more weeks.
Jennings, who has missed the last three games and most of the games that came before those, got a second opinion on the injury earlier this week. Turns out rest isn’t doing the job.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy told Adam Schein surgery is an option. The good news is the surgery would not be season-ending.
So theoretically, the Packers would have Jennings when they roll into Atlanta for the playoffs and pound the crap out of Matty Ice & Co. like they did two years ago.
Also, then he might be available for the fantasy playoffs.

Great points, Tyko. I had forgotten Megatron was on the cover of Madden. The curse is FOR REAL.

I had surgery on my groin just a little while ago. The wife loves the results.
No Jennings, No Jordy, no running game….should be a great game Sunday.
We can watch Al Green handoffs all day…can’t wait.
Yes, this could be interesting if the Packers have to play with neither of their starting WRs.
Donald Driver may get one last hurrah. I am curious as to whether Cobb would start outside, or if they would leave him in the slot and put Driver or Boykin out there. They’ll mix it up, I suppose.
Regardless could be a great opportunity for Driver, or Finley, or someone else to shine. Could also be a big game for Alex Green.
The Packers are resembling the walking wounded out there, back to not being able to finish practices because of injuries. The bye week can’t come soon enough. The thing is- Arizona isn’t a pushover if enough Packers remain injured.
I sat next to a former NFL TE on an airplane a number of years ago. He said you can tell who’s juicing by the types of injuries that guys receive. Those injuries where the muscle pulled the ligament or tendon off the bone were usually attributed to ‘roids – e.g. torn pec or bicep. At the time, I thought of Bahaow Jue (sp?) who also had a groin injury. While I’m not saying I know anything about Jennings, this one smells fishy to me.
lets project the following for big receiving days on Sunday: Jones, Cobb, Driver & Finley (yes, Jerkmichael). Kuhn’s hammy worries me as much as Jordy’s. DJ williams & Crabtree are gonna be playing a whole lot of H back……if there is any saving grace it is the injuries aren’t long term and are at a weaker point of our schedule, 2 at home and a bye…..
Jennings is scheduled for surgery next week. Will miss 3 to 6 weeks. So, similar timetable to Woodson.
Always nice to see the VIKES get STOMPED.
The futility saga continues. Queens are now an afterthought.
Please! The inevitable implosion has begun! We all knew it was coming! A temporary promise of hope, that’s all it was! That’s all it ever is! Sure, it’s awesome to witness their destruction, still, they are the skinny, red-headed step child & we all know how this story ends!
