Packers WR Greg Jennings Out 2-3 Weeks with Sprained Knee

Tuesday December 13th, 2011

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings will miss only 2-3 weeks with a sprained knee, according to the Associated Press. Jennings was injured in the 3rd quarter of Green Bay's blowout win over the Oakland Raiders Sunday.

There were whispers that the severity of the injury could cause Jennings to miss significant time, but coach Mike McCarthy expects him back for the postseason.

"We have three games left," McCarthy told the AP. "Yes, I would think it'd be safe to say he'll be back for the playoffs." Jennings has 67 catches for 949 yards and nine touchdowns on the season for Green Bay, whose offense has been near unstoppable during their 13-0 run through the 2011 season.
