GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy says receiver Greg Jennings is recovering slower than expected from the groin injury he suffered 12 days ago in the season opener.
Jennings suffered a setback at practice on Tuesday, when he failed to take part in the full team drills after getting some quick rehab. McCarthy said the coaching staff might have been too optimistic about his recovery. And Jennings did not practice at all yesterday. But still, the coach is not ruling Jennings out for the Packers’ next game at Seattle on Monday night. He practiced only 13 days at training camp due to another injury. And it’s a big loss for the Packers, after he caught 67 passes for 949 yards and nine touchdowns a year ago. Jennings’ only action this year was in the season opener against San Francisco, when Jennings caught five passes for 34 yards. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he and Jennings will have to be on the same page when he returns.
Besides Jennings, tight end Tom Crabtree did not practice yesterday as he gets over a shoulder injury. Linebacker Jamari Lattimore missed practice with a bad ankle. Five players were limited – Randall Cobb, Josh Sitton, Davon House, James Starks, and C.J Wilson.
