BBAO: Another injury for Greg Jennings


We're Black and Blue All Over:

We noted Monday that receiver Greg Jennings showed up on the Green Bay Packers' injury report with a groin injury, one that presumably was the reason he left the field late in Sunday's 30-22 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The question now is whether Jennings can recover with a quick turnaround in order to play Thursday night against the Chicago Bears.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday night he wasn't sure if that can happen. The leg had improved between Sunday evening and Monday morning, but he'll be re-evaluated Tuesday to determine if he can practice. Jennings missed the final three regular-season games of 2011 because of a knee injury and was limited in training camp because of a concussion.

As we discussed Monday, the Packers appear to have kept veteran Donald Driver on their roster mostly for insurance reasons. That decision might pay off earlier than they had hoped.
