Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy wouldn't rule Cullen Jenkins out this week, but the prognosis is not encouraging.
"It may be a couple weeks," said McCarthy. "When you’re dealing with a calf strain, just meeting with Dr. McKenzie, he feels better today than he did with the initial diagnosis last night, after going through the testing and so forth. But I don’t see Cullen making it this week."
Jenkins originally strained his calf muscle Week 7 during pre-game warm-ups before the Minnesota Vikings game. Because he aggravated the same injury, there's reason to be concerned.
He told reporters last night that it felt worse than the first time he strained his calf.
As for Korey Hall, the news isn't any better.
"Korey will be challenged to be available this week," said McCarthy, classifying Hall's injury as a knee sprain.
On the positive side of the ledger, the injuries to wide receivers Donald Driver and Brett Swain shouldn't limit their availability this week.
Driver had his wrist wrapped after the game, but McCarthy indicated the swelling went down and showed no concern. Swain suffered a knee contusion and could have went back into the game yesterday if necessary.
