Found December 20, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
While the Green Bay Packers announced that tight end Tom Crabtree injured his hamstring last weekend against the Chicago Bears, the team added a pair of starters to Wednesday’s injury report; offensive lineman T.J. Lang and running back Alex Green, reports James Carlton of CBS Sports. “T.J. Lang, I'm encouraged that he'll be ready for Sunday just based on the information from (team doctors),” McCarthy said. “It became evident at some point after the game or on Monday that he had (concussion) symptoms. So we're playing the high side (of caution). Same thing with Green.” Both Lang and Green are dealing with concussions. However, the Packers seem confident that both players will be able to suit up this weekend against the Tennessee Titans. Green currently leads the team in carries, and if he can’t suit up this weekend the Packers would be left depending on Ryan Grant and DuJuan Harris. Lang has been hampered throughout the season by injuries, but he was able to start against the Bears.

Packers WR faces uncertain future in offseason

Greg Jennings is not naive and he's not ignoring reality, either. The veteran wide receiver is in the final year of his contract, and has yet to hear from the Green Bay Packers about an extension. Common sense - and Green Bay history - would suggest that means he'll be playing somewhere else next season, a notion Jennings doesn't dispute. But even with the Packers playing...
