Greg Jennings Injury: MCL Tear Feared, But Packers Teammates Believe He'll Be Fine

Greg Jennings suffered a knee injury during the Green Bay Packers game on Sunday afternoon against the Oakland Raiders. The Packers were able to overcome it on their way to a 46-16 victory to remain undefeated, but Jennings' injury could have long-term effects.

Jennings will undergo an MRI on Monday to diagnose exactly what's wrong with the Packers wide receiver, according to the Milwauke Journal Sentinel, but Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio says that a torn MCL is currently being mentioned as a possibility.

Jennings' teammates don't seem quite as worried, though, according to their comments to the Journal Sentinel.

"I think he'll be fine," Donald Driver said. "I haven't talked to him yet but I think he should be OK...We know that everybody has a job to do. It's been a proven fact that guys have stepped up and filled other guys' shoes."

"I don't think things would change because we have weapons," Finley said. "We're going to keep this offense going the same. The game plan's the same. We just have to keep this thing going and get behind A-Rod and get this playoff thing going."

There will undoubtedly be more updates coming on Jennings' knee, but right now it doesn't exactly look promising. For more on the Packers, visit Acme Packing Company.

Greg Jennings Injury Update: Knee Sprain Could Limit Green Bay Packers Offense

Greg Jennings suffered a knee injury during the third quarter of the Green Bay Packers game against the Oakland Raiders as the Packers continued on their quest to remain undefeated. Head coach Mike McCarthy announced in his post-game press conference that Jennings suffered a knee sprain, an injury that could limit the Packers offense going forward.

Jennings finished Sunday's game with just two receptions and 20 yards while being targeted five times by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but he wasn't exactly needed as Green Bay cruised to a 46-16 victory after leading 31-0 at halftime.

The Packers have just three games left as they look to complete an undefeated regular season and, following Jenning's injury on Sunday, they may need to consider benching some of their starters in a quest to remain healthy heading into the postseason.

Jennings' status for even next week hasn't been determined yet, but it's never good to see players get hurt in what ultimately are meaningless games considering the Packers have clinched homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.
