Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is dealing with a groin injury and could miss the team’s week two contest against the Chicago Bears.
Jennings, a seven-year veteran from Western Michigan, reportedly sustained the injury late in Sunday’s loss to the 49ers. According to a report by the Associated Press, “Packers coach Mike McCarthy says Jennings was hurt late in Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers. McCarthy says Jennings didn’t feel very good Sunday but was better as of Monday morning.
The shortened week could work against the Packers as they face off against their division rival on Thursday night at Lambeau Field.
Green Bay is coming off an opening weekend loss against a 49er team that dominated the Packers in all three facets of the game. The absence of Jennings against a potent Bears team could spell trouble for the Packers, as Aaron Rodgers will need all of his weapons to keep pace with a Chicago team that scored 41 points against the Colts.
