The Green Bay Packers may be hitting a hot streak, but they’ll have to continue to do so without the services of wide receiver Greg Jennings.
Jennings has been limited to just three games so far in 2012 due to a groin injury he never fully recovered from after suffering in week 1. The wide out has announced he will have surgery to finally fully fix the problem, something he hoped would have happened on it’s own.
There were high hopes that Jennings would return to action last week against the St. Louis Rams, but his groin never loosened up and he was forced to sit out yet another game.
The surgery won’t end Jennings season, but it’s going to keep him out for a majority of it. The hope at this point is that Jennings will make a late season return to the lineup and either help the Packers secure a playoff spot, or return in time to help the Packers should they make the postseason.
Jennings had the option of getting an injection in his groin — but like any man the idea of sharp object in that area didn’t fly with the Pro Bowler. That, and Jennings wanted to finally fix the problem rather than leave it as a wait and see situation as it has ben up until now.
