When the Green Bay Packers may take on the Chicago Bears this weekend, they will likely be without wide receiver Kevin Dorsey. According to a report by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Dorsey suffered a serious foot injury during Thursday's practice that could threaten his season.

Dorsey's injury comes exactly one month after the Packers signed the 2013 seventh-round pick to the active roster. In his three games with the team, Dorsey recorded one reception for four yards while mostly playing on special teams.

Should the injury proves as severe as expected, Green Bay would place Dorsey on season-ending injured reserve for the second time in as many years. The receiver's first stint was brought on by a toe injury he suffered during training camp in 2013.

If Dorsey does land on injured reserve, the Packers may choose to add a player at a position other than wide receiver. Because both T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton could miss Sunday's game with an ankle sprain and toe ligament tear respectively, an offensive lineman could be needed for depth. As of Thursday, Green Bay's practice squad includes offensive tackle Jeremy Vujnovich and guards Jordan McCray and Josh Walker.
