Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has been ruled out of the team's upcoming game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday with a groin injury, according to a tweet from's Ian Rapoport. Jennings missed the Packers' game against the Bears with the same injury, but managed to play in the next two games after that. It's unclear when exactly Jennings will return, but he hasn't been ruled out of any other upcoming games.

Thankfully for the Packers, receiving depth is not an issue. It's unclear who will move into Jennings' starting spot, but James Jones and Randall Cobb will see more snaps in his absence. Unfortunately for the Packers, considering the nature of groin injuries, this condition may stick with Jennings for the rest of the season.

Jennings only caught one pass for nine yards in the Packers' win over the Saints last weekend. Through three games, he has 12 catches for 78 yards and one touchdown, numbers far below Jennings' expected production levels.
