GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is officially out for tonight's game against the Chicago Bears.Jennings, a Pro Bowl selection the past two seasons, suffered a groin injury on Green Bay's final drive on Sunday in the loss to the 49ers. He did not participate in either practice this week and was listed as doubtful.Jennings, who will turn 29 next week, is in the final year of his contract and has stated on several occasions recently that he's preparing for the possibility of this being his final season with the Packers. But it has not been a great start to the year for Jennings, who missed two weeks of training camp with a concussion and an additional three practices with an elbow bruise.With Jennings out, veteran receiver Donald Driver will certainly have a bigger role. On Sunday, Driver, Green Bay's all-time leading receiver, played only three snaps, and those came on the final offensive series after Jennings got hurt.The rest of the Packers' inactive list against the Bears is running back James Starks, wide receiver Jarrett Boykin, defensive end C.J. Wilson, linebacker Terrell Manning, cornerback Davon House and safety Sean Richardson.Follow Paul Imig on Twitter
