The impact of Hurricane Sandy could be felt all the way in Wisconsin.
Receiver Greg Jennings was due to have surgery on Tuesday in Philadelphia. Coach Mike McCarthy said that the surgery has been postponed, via ESPNMilwaukee.com.
It’s not clear when the operation will be performed.
The bigger news, in our view, is that McCarthy called it hernia surgery, a label that had not previously been applied to the groin injury with which Jennings had been dealing for weeks. Last week, Jennings described the condition as an abdominal tear, but he stopped short of using the “H” word.
The admission that it’s a hernia raises plenty of questions. Why did they wait to do surgery on a condition that wasn’t going to go away with rest? Did they not know it was a hernia? If not, why not?
Regardless, the situation has marred Jennings’ contract year. And while he says he’ll be back in the locker room the day after the procedure, it likely will be several weeks before he can play.
Or until he can resume doing pushups with a JetSki on his back.
