Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings underwent
surgery on his abdominal muscle yesterday and the procedure went “very well”,
according to coach Mike McCarthy. Meanwhile, the Packers may elect to rest
fellow wide receiver Jordy Nelson this weekend with their bye upcoming, reports
Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com.
With their bye on the
horizon, you wonder if the Green Bay Packers will try to steal two more weeks
of rest for receiver Jordy Nelson's hamstring injury -- at the cost of only one
more missed game.
Jennings’ injury has limited him nearly all season, and
following the procedure he’s expected to be out a “minimum of a couple of
weeks,” according to McCarthy.
The Packers hope to have Nelson, who’s recovering from a
hamstring injury, back before then, but the team may elect to keep him out of
another game this weekend in anticipation of their upcoming bye week. In this
way Nelson would get an additional two weeks to rest his injured hammy, rather
than risk aggravating it by returning too quickly.
