GREEN BAY, Wis. Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings finally found out what's been nagging him during his slow recovery from a groin injury. After seeking a second medical opinion this week, Jennings was told that he has a rectus abdominis tear.
Jennings could have gotten by in the short term with pain-killer injections, but he is opting for surgery. The procedure will be performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia on Tuesday, and Jennings believes it will allow him to play again this season.
"The way (Dr. Meyers) described it to me was simply two people pulling on the end of a rope and it starts to fray," Jennings said Thursday in the locker room. "And the more tugging, the more fraying, which means the more tearing occurs. That's what I have going on."
Jennings, a two-time Pro Bowl selection who is set to enter free agency in the offseason, would not give a timetable for his return. He has already missed four of the Packers' seven games with the injury.
"As far as the timeframe of how long the rehab and recovery will be, my body will tell me that," Jennings said. "At the end of the day, it's going to be determined whether I feel good or not is when I'm going to return back onto the football field.
"But not season-ending. Hopefully I can return before the season ends. We'll see. But it's not season-ending."

Starters Charles Woodson, Sam Shields, John Kuhn, Nick Perry and Greg Jennings are out and they might be joined on the sideline by Jordy Nelson, who will be a game-time decision.
Post-practice notes from today includ a rash of injuries:
Greg Jennings’ progress is going very slowly – hence the team is getting second opinion. Maybe Jennings is just a pansy.
Jordy Nelson’s hamstring tightened up so he had to sit down.
Donald Driver DNP and John Kuhn has a calf issue.
Sam Shields and Nick Perry are doubtful for Sunday.
Hopefully Raji will be out there...
