From the Twitter account of ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

McCarthy presumably told Schein during his weekly interview on satellite radio’s SiriusXM NFL Radio channel.
Jennings has missed the past three games with a groin injury that dates back to the season opener when it was originally aggravated.
The Packers head coach acknowledged on Wednesday that Jennings was receiving a second medical opinion after his groin was taking longer to heal than expected.
McCarthy will hold a press conference later today, which he’ll likely address Jennings’ situation.
This tweet from Adam Schein includes an important qualifier, “not season ending.”
McCarthy: “I had a chance to visit with Greg this am. Greg Jennings is going through the options, surgery is one.” NOT SEASON ENDING
