Three NFC North teams played Sunday, but one only team suffered an injury to a key player.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings to not return to Sunday's 28-17 victory over the New Orleans Saints after a groin injury forced him out in the second quarter. The injury is the same one that kept him out of a Week 2 victory against the Chicago Bears, and its still unclear if it will keep him out of this Sunday's contest at the Indianapolis Colts. The Packers are now 2-2 overall.

The Lions (1-3) lost defensive end Cliff Avril, who was knocked out of the game with a back injury in the fourth quarter. Avril is expected to have an MRI on Monday. The other notable injury suffered by the Detroit Lions came when wide receiver Calvin Johnson took a helmet-to-helmet hit in the fourth quarter of a 20-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Johnson was examined by the medical staff and returned to the game.

For the Vikings (3-1), wide receiver Michael Jenkins suffered a rib injury in the second quarter but later returned to the game.

The Bears (2-1) did not play Sunday, as they face the Dallas Cowboys (2-1) at 8:30 p.m. ET on Monday Night Football. The game will be televised on ESPN.
