Monday December 12th, 2011

Green Bay Packers star wide receiver Greg Jennings left the team's dominating victory over the Oakland Raiders Sunday with a knee injury in the third quarter. Jennings was visibly pained, and rode to the locker room in a cart.

Now Mike Florio of is floating a report that Jennings suffered a torn MCL -- a report that even Florio candidly admits is "unconfirmed."

However, in a follow-up tweet Florio reports that Jennings will undergo an MRI tomorrow to determine the precise nature and severity of the injury, and that report has since been confirmed by Albert Breer of the NFL Network.
