Greg Jennings injury: Packers WR taken out of Saints game

Though he was cleared to play in Week 4 despite a groin injury, Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings left Sunday's game with New Orleans and will not return, according to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Pro Bowl receiver was targeted three times by Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the first half of his team's battle with the Saints, and managed to haul in a crucial 9-yard touchdown early in the second quarter to give the Packers the lead. Unfortunately, the talented wideout reportedly re-aggravated his groin injury and did not join his team on offense to begin the second half after coming out of the locker room.

Jennings originally missed Green Bay's Week 2 victory over the Bears with the same nagging groin injury, and was clearly hobbled after gutting it out last week against the Seahawks. Despite making a decent impact in the first half with his team desperate for a victory, it's clear that Jennings simply isn't the same type of playmaking receiver right now that he is capable of being.
