Green Bay Packers WR Greg Jennings’ Surgery Delayed

Joe Nicholson- US PRESSWIRE

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings was scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday morning on what is classified as an “abdominal muscle tear” stemming from a groin injury. The surgery, set to take place in Philadelphia, has been put off due to the impending Hurricane Sandy. Neither the Packers nor Jennings has confirmed a new date for the surgery.

Jennings has dealt with the groin injury for most of the season, causing him to miss five out of the first eight games. The wide receiver elected to have surgery immediately rather than waiting for the offseason, and you can’t blame him – Jennings is looking for a free agency payday at the end of the season and certainly won’t want to be coming off of surgery while teams are courting him.

Furthermore, Jennings also has a chance to return before the end of the season. The surgery will keep him out at least six weeks, but that leaves the door open for him to return late in the season. As was seen on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Packers sorely miss Jennings, especially when combined with the absence of all-around stud wideout Jordy Nelson.

The long-term question that looms for Jennings is how this latest injury will affect his market value in the offseason. While I hope and pray that he re-signs with Green Bay, the writing is on the wall that Jennings will most likely move on.

The sprained MCL Jennings suffered at the end of last season, coupled with this groin injury that has severely limited his time on the field this season, threatens to doom him with the dreaded “injury prone” label. It would be in Jennings best interest  if he were able to get healthy in time to put up the big numbers we are used to seeing from him before the offseason hits.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
