Greg Jennings To Undergo Surgery To Repair Groin Tear
Greg Jennings has not had the 2012 that he was hoping for. The Green Bay Packers wideout has been hurt since Week 1 and it looks like he is going to miss more games. He will undergo surgery to repair a torn groin muscle, the injury that he suffered in the first game of the year.
Greg Jennings said he will have surgery on his torn groin on Wed.

This move does not come as a surprise since Jennings has been laid up the last few weeks. It is certainly not going to help him in his pursuit of a long-term contract. If anything, this means he might end up being a Packer for next season and beyond. People might not want to spend money on a guy who lost most of his 2012 to injury.
In the present day, the Packers will probably be fine, thanks to one guy. A lot of people loved the pick of Randall Cobb in last year’s draft. However, I do not think people thought he would burst onto the scene so soon. He had a so-so rookie year but he has taken off this season. With his production, the Packers will be able to offset the loss of Jennings to a degree.
If Jennings is able to return a few weeks before the playoffs, the Packers become even more dangerous. If the offense can stay clicking while the defense gets the young guys up to speed, they will be a tough out come January.
