GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers have added three players to their early injury list heading into Thursday night’s home game against the Chicago Bears.
Receiver Greg Jennings injured a groin in the Pack’s final drive in Sunday’s home loss to San Francisco. Coach Mike McCarthy said Jennings felt better yesterday, but he’ll have no idea about the receiver’s playing status until after today’s practice. Defensive end C.J. Wilson also injured a groin, and backup linebacker Terrell Manning had a concussion. We also expect to hear more today about the status of running back James Starks, who’s been out with turf toe – linebacker Jamari Lattimore, who has a bad ankle – and corner Davon House, who’s close to returning from an injured shoulder. Neither the Packers nor the Bears practiced yesterday – but if they had, the Packers said House and Lattimore would have been listed as limited participants. And Starks, Jennings, Wilson, and Manning would have all been listed as not participating.
There’s a reason that Boys II Men sang the National Anthem before last Sunday’s Packer game in Green Bay. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers – a good friend of Boys’ singer Nathan Morris – asked the group to sing. And the two made a bet that the quarterback lost. Morris is a big San Francisco 49’ers fan, and he would have worn a Packers’ jersey all of this week had Green Bay won. But the Pack lost, so Rodgers had to wear a 49’ers jersey during the week. That hasn’t happened yet, and Morris says he’ll give Rodgers a pass for now – but only because the quarterback is in a hurry to get ready for the Packers’ next game on Thursday night at home against Chicago. After that, Green Bay has 11 days until its following game at Seattle on September 24th. So you would think it would give Rodgers plenty of time to pay off the bet then.
