Editor's Update: Greg Jennings (groin) did not practice on Thursday for the Green Bay Packers.
Surgery is one of the options being considered by wide receiver Greg Jennings to treat his injured groin, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy told Adam Schein of the SiriusXM Blitz on Thursday. The surgery would not be season-ending, according to McCarthy.
Jennings has missed four games this season, including the last three. He last played against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4, when the injury flared up again. The Packers are 3-1 in games without Jennings this season. They face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8.
Fantasy Impact: The Packers have Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Randall Cobb ready if Jennings can't return soon. There was some speculation that he would return this week but this seems very unlikely if surgery is being considered to treat the injury.
The Packers have a bye in Week 10 and a return after the week off is looking more likely. Jennings is still worth keeping but this has been tough for owners who used a high draft pick on him.
