Everything was going perfectly for the Packers today against the Raiders — until receiver Greg Jennings suffered a knee injury in the third quarter.
Jennings appeared to hurt his left leg when he was tackled following an eight-yard catch early in the third quarter. He was obviously in a lot of pain as he hobbled off the field, and he was later taken to the locker room on a cart.
The Packers said Jennings is questionable to return with a knee injury, but they’re obviously not going to put him back into a game that they’re currently leading 34-7. The question is whether this is an injury that could affect the rest of his season.
Green Bay was having a nearly perfect game until the injury, but when Jennings went down it felt like all the energy got sucked out of Lambeau Field, and on the next possession the Raiders marched down the field and scored their first touchdown of the game.
Packers defensive tackle Ryan Pickett also limped to the locker room, and running back Brandon Saine has left the game with a head injury.
