Jenkins, Hall Likely Out This Week

Jenkins, Hall Likely Out This Week

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.

Alright! Any news that does not include the term "IR" is good news to me! Yes, I am that broken down. Let's hope Cullen gets healthy for the Pats.

What happened to Swain? ...... Bump his knee on the bench again ? .......

Jenkins won't be needed against the Lions .... But will be needed versus Pats .......

I hear you on Swain. Seems the guy is banged up every time there's contact.

swain is a very small guy.. needs to hit the weight room. and from waht i have seen the past few seasons our training staff has become somewhat subpar.. swain might be a puss too tho who knows

Started to see some good plays from Swain, hopefully this will not slow him down. Competition at WR is pretty tight.

competition at WR is not really that tight... nelson and jones are not in jeopardy of losing there spot to swain.. haha funny to even think about.. jones might make mistakes but he is a ball player and nelson has potential to be our go to possession WR after driver goes.. and jennings and driver arent going anywhere unless the retire.. competition for that last WR spot being tight? sure..
as for all the other injuries we cnat erally sleep on it seems like its not a big deal nd whatever yeah the lions record is bad but they are a good team and we dont want to be the ones that dont sweep them and ruin our shot to win the division as well as make the wild card spot nearly impossible to get -__- sad to think we are in that position right now

I wouldn't say jones is a ball player, He is not consistent enough. When that pass went his way in th 9er's game that hit the defender in the helmet he made no effort to go up for the ball, and that is not the only instance it has happened before in the past.
