Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told the media today that wide receiver Greg Jennings is out for two to three weeks. Albert Breer of the NFL Network reported the news this afternoon. That means Green Bay should at least have Jennings back in time for what most expect to be a deep run into the playoffs.
Jennings was on pace to top the 1,000-yard mark for the fourth consecutive season. Through Week 14, he had 949 yards and nine touchdowns. Jennings led the Packers in total receptions with 67, but Jordy Nelson leads in receiving yards and touchdowns.
Jennings suffered a knee injury in the third quarter of his team's 13th win of the season. It looked serious as he was being driven off the field in a cart. Further examination revealed that it was a sprain, a big break for what many feared could be a torn ligament.
