It sounds like Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings may not play again in the regular season, but coach Mike McCarthy was upbeat about Jennings’ health on Monday.
Mike McCarthy said that Jennings will be out a “couple weeks.” Florio said Sunday we heard that Jennings had a torn MCL, and what McCarthy said is consistent with that. The MCL is a rope-like ligament that heals with rest with a significant tear.
“The last time I added that up, that’s 2-3 weeks,” McCarthy said.
Of course there are only three weeks left in the regular season. But McCarthy said it sounds “safe to say” that Jennings will be back for the playoffs.
Which is probably why McCarthy was so upbeat.
