PACKERS’ WR, JENNINGS, WILL UNDERGO GROIN SURGERY
Tue, 30 Oct 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Rest and rehabilitation were not enough to get Greg Jennings back on the field.

The Green Bay Packers’ No.1 receiver will have surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle which has kept him out for most of the season. He wouldn’t put a timetable on his return, but said recovery from the 20- to 25-minute outpatient procedure is not season-ending.

Though Jennings declined to discuss about how long he would be out after the surgery, doctors expect that he will be sidelined about 3 weeks, a league source expounded.

“Honestly, I’m over being bummed about it. That took place 3, 4 weeks ago,” Jennings announced. “It is what it is. I need to look after it to 100 percent, and that’s the process I’m taking.” Basketball spreads

The 2-time Pro Bowler was at 1st hurt in the closing minutes of the Sept. 9 opener against San Francisco. He sat out the next week’s game against Chicago, and returned to play at Seattle on Sept. 24. But he worsened the injury against New Orleans Saints, and came out of the Sept. 30 game in the 2nd quarter after a 9-yard touchdown catch, his 1st of the season.

Jennings had hoped the injury would heal with treatment and strength work. But he continued to feel discomfort when he was in the weight room or tried to run, and feared the injury wasn’t improving as he’d hoped. When he felt his groin tighten up as he ran off the field after last weekend’s game in St. Louis, Jennings knew more aggressive treatment was required.

He traveled to Philadelphia to see Dr. William Meyers, who specializes in abdominal and groin injuries.

“The way he described it to me was simply 2 people pulling on the end of a rope and it begins to fray. The more tugging, the more fraying, which means the more tearing occurs,” Jennings said. “That’s what I have going on.”

Meyers told Jennings he might have either an injection or surgery. But it would probably take 1 or 2 days to see if the injection worked.

If it didn’t, Jennings would require surgery anyway.

“The injection would’ve masked almost all of the pain, but there was still no guarantee I could go out there and hit that last gear,” Jennings said. “That’s the one thing I should have … to create more separation. So, there is no sense to me in taking a shot that may or may not work, may take a few days to a week to actually start working. I could have spent the week rehabbing on a surgery that’s going to get me back perfect.”

Jennings said he’ll be in a position to walk out of the procedure, which will be done in Philadelphia. He joked that he will come back in the locker room and “you guys will never know.”

The injury has come at the most inopportune time for Jennings, who is in the year of his contract.

Though he’s had 1,000-yard seasons in 3 of the last 4 years and is 7th on Green Bay’s career list with 401 receptions, some assume the Packers will let Jennings go as an unrestricted free agent.
