Found October 29, 2012 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
GREEN BAY, Wis. Nearly one thousand miles away from Hurricane Sandy, the Packers were supposed to be one of the NFL teams unaffected by the storm's destructive path. But with Greg Jennings set to fly out to Philadelphia for his scheduled surgery, the star wide receiver has no choice but to wait on the procedure. Jennings announced last week that he is opting for surgery to repair his rectus abdominis tear, an injury that began as a groin issue earlier this season. The plan was for Dr. William Meyers to perform the operation on Tuesday, but with Hurricane Sandy shutting down much of the east coast, Jennings won't be able to get to Philadelphia. "Greg is obviously delayed from going out to Philadelphia because of the storm," coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. "Exactly when he will go? That has not been determined yet." Jennings is hoping to return this season, but a delay in his surgery will push back his potential return to the field. "It's going to be determined whether I feel good or not," Jennings said last week. "But it's not season-ending. Hopefully I can return before the season ends. We'll see. But it's not season-ending." The recovery time from this procedure can vary greatly, so Jennings didn't want to predict specifically when he may be catching passes from Aaron Rodgers in a game again. "I don't want to give a timetable because that will be out there and it will be expected to be back," Jennings said. "I don't even want to give timetables. I just want to let my body tell me when I'm going to be back." Every day that passes in which Jennings is unable to have the surgery is one less day for him to recover before the end of the season. With the 5-3 Packers already at the midpoint of their schedule, they'll need Jennings back as soon as possible to prepare for a postseason run. Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
