GREEN BAY, Wis. Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings re-injured his groin and has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Jennings caught a touchdown pass -- his first of the season -- from quarterback Aaron Rodgers early in the second quarter to give Green Bay a 14-7 lead. But on the following drives, Jennings stood on the sideline with his helmet off speaking to Dr. Pat McKenzie. As the second half began, it was announced that Jennings had a groin injury and would not return in the game. For Jennings, a two-time consecutive Pro Bowl selection who is in a contract year, this has been a season to forget so far. In training camp, Jennings suffered a concussion that cost him more than two weeks of practice. He also missed several days with an elbow bruise. In Week 1 of the regular season, Jennings left on the final drive of the game when he initially suffered a groin injury. That made Jennings unavailable to play in Week 2. When he returned in Week 3, Jennings played 55 of 76 offensive snaps but caught only six passes for 35 yards. Jennings missed the final three games of last season due to a knee injury. In 13 starts in 2011, Jennings had 67 catches for 949 yards with nine touchdowns. Through four games this season, Jennings has 12 receptions for 78 yards with just one touchdown.
