Greg Jennings Is Pessimistic About His Groin Injury

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The news on the Packers' top receiver for the past several years is not good, as it appears he will miss a substantial period of time.

As you probably know, Greg Jennings caught one pass on Sunday, a nine-yard touchdown, before leaving the game after aggravating the groin injury that he has been working through over the past few weeks. Well, we now have some unpleasant news to pass along: Jennings did not practice today, instead undergoing testing on his injury. Tom Silverstein of the Journal-Sentinel talked to Jennings after practice today and tweeted this news this afternoon:

Unfortunately for Jennings, this injury comes at one of the worst possible times in his career: a contract year. With rumors and suggestions of trading Jennings or letting him walk in the off-season, it seems likely that he will need to recover fully and contribute down the stretch in order for the Packers to consider bringing him back for 2013. It doesn't sound like that will happen this week though, especially when reading this comment:

In other words, Jennings is almost guaranteed to miss Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts, and could very well miss more games after that. Jordy Nelson and James Jones will need to step up their games in the interim, and this could be an opportunity for rookie Jarrett Boykin to make it on the active 46-man gameday roster.
