Green Bay Packers: Potential Loss of Greg Jennings Puts Packers in Tight Spot Against Bears
September 13, 2012INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
The Green Bay Packers might be without star wide receiver Greg Jennings when they matchup against the Chicago Bears to open Thursday Night Football on the NFL Network.
Jennings removed himself during the Packers' final drive with a groin injury in last week's game against the San Francisco 49ers.
ESPN.com's Adam Schefter is reporting that there is a 50-50 chance that Jennings suits up. Should Jennings not be able to go, Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Randall Cobb will be Aaron Rodgers' primary targets. In the Packers' Week 1 loss, Cobb was the Packers' most targeted receiver and finished the game with nine catches.
Cobb's speed and elusiveness in the middle of the field could provide matchup problems for the Bears, who are hampered at linebacker with Brian Urlacher still recovering from a knee injury and Charles Tillman listed as questionable with a shin injury.
