GREEN BAY, Wis. -- We could see this one coming: The Green Bay Packers won't have receiver Greg Jennings in Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bears. Jennings suffered a groin injury four days ago and won't have to worry about playing another game until Sept. 24, when the Packers play at the Seattle Seahawks on "Monday Night Football."

The Packers announced James Jones will start for Jennings. Donald Driver will serve as the No. 4 receiver, presumably, and the Packers will have only four receivers active for this game. Rookie Jarrett Boykin is also inactive.

Meanwhile, defensive end C.J. Wilson (groin) is inactive. He'll be replaced in the starting lineup by rookie Jerel Worthy.

As expected, the Bears have made Charles Tillman (shin) active. He'll start.
