GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the Packers to get back to .500 with an upset win on the road over the Houston Texans on Sunday night, they'll likely have to do so without several of their key players.
Two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings (groin) has officially been ruled out. This will be the third game this season Jennings will miss due to the groin injury he initially suffered on the team's final drive in Week 1.
"He's probably at the spot where he was before he played against the Saints (in Week 4)," coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. "We're going to go another six days before we even attempt to test him. That's our plan."
Tight end Jermichael Finley (shoulder) and Pro Bowl nose tackle B.J. Raji (ankle) are both questionable. They each left last Sunday's game in Indianapolis after suffering injuries. Finley was able to be a limited participant in Friday's practice, but Raji did not participate at all.
"B.J. is a little further behind (in his recovery)," McCarthy said. "He was not able to go through the rehab part of it."

Although he’s yet to completely rule himself out for Sunday’s game versus the Texans, Packers’ WR Greg Jennings (groin) is not expected to play in Week 6. “I’ve kept things the same, making sure I don’t rush it back like I did before,” Jennings said.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is out of Sunday night's game at Houston, according to PackersNews.com.
Jennings is still nursing a hamstring injury that he sustained at the beginning of the season. Jennings would have been an important player to have against a strong Texans defense.

The headline regarding to Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is harsh. The truth is that as a writer and most importantly a fan of the game, these eyes can see that it is warranted.
In a interview, Finley’s various quotes from this week and beyond point to a player that has a hard time accepting responsibility for his own role in what has become a negative situation...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers running back Cedric Benson has been placed on injured reserve after suffering a Lisfranc injury to his left foot Sunday. But unlike previous NFL seasons, Benson will have a chance to get back on the field later this year due to a new league rule that allows each team to designate one player for a possible return.
With Benson being given that designation...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The relationship between Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and tight end Jermichael Finley frequently boils down to one word: chemistry.
In Finley's mind, chemistry between the two is often directly related to his personal statistics and those of the offense as a whole. With Green Bay's 2-3 record and an offense ranked 21st in the NFL in total yards and...
The defense is giving up big chunks of yardage - again. Injuries are piling up. Even the offense, which has carried the Green Bay Packers the last two years, is suspect.
A year after opening the season 13-0, the Packers are in danger of letting the season get away from them. At 2-3 (yes, that includes that loss in Seattle that wasn't really a loss), they face something of a...
