GREEN BAY, Wis. Packers Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings suffered a groin injury in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, and his status for Green Bay's next game is uncertain. Considering the Packers already have their second game of the regular season on Thursday night, the short turnaround may negatively affect Jennings' availability when the Chicago Bears travel to Lambeau Field for a divisional showdown. "I spoke to Greg after the game, he didn't feel very good about it," coach Mike McCarthy said Monday night. "I spoke to him again this morning, feels better today than he did last night. Frankly, we really won't know until we hit the practice field tomorrow as far as his status or his possible status for Thursday night." In Sunday's game, with less than two minutes remaining and Green Bay's offense on the field down by eight, Jennings ran a deep pass route on first down and immediately waved to the sideline after the play. Jennings exited and did not re-enter the game as the Packers turned the ball over on downs three plays later, sealing the win for San Francisco. Jennings finished the game with five receptions for 34 yards. Though the team did not practice Monday, McCarthy still had to release an injury report with estimations of who would not have been available. Jennings was listed as a 'Did Not Participate.' Jennings did not speak after Sunday's game. When he came to his locker Monday, he told the gathered media that he did not want to talk. This is the third injury for Jennings already this season. Early in training camp, Jennings missed three practices with an elbow bruise and later missed two entire weeks due to a concussion. Now, Jennings is dealing with a groin injury. These injuries are in addition to what happened to Jennings in December 2011, when he was forced to miss the final three regular-season games with a knee injury. Because of those missed games last season, Jennings fell 51 yards shy of reaching 1,000-plus receiving yards for the fourth consecutive year. Jennings, who turns 29 in less than two weeks, is in the final year of his contract with the Packers. "I'm not worried about whether I'm going to end up here or whether I'm getting a contract done," Jennings said last week. "That will take care of itself. If I'm here, I would love to be here. If I'm not, it is what it is. At the end of the day, I'm going to play football. "I'm not going to allow it (my contract) to be a distraction. I've never allowed my individual off-the-field deals that I need to take care of become a distraction to myself, let alone the team. "I'm glad you guys are asking me right now so we can kill it, because it's a non-issue. It's one of those deals where I can't control the situation. "Everyone knows what the reality of it is when guys are coming up on a deal. Will you be here? If I don't get a contract, no. But that's writing on the wall of itself. Do I want to be here? Absolutely. Everyone upstairs knows that. The guys around me know that." Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
