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.

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.
