The Green Bay Packers will not have wide receiver Greg Jennings for Sunday night's game against the New York Giants. The veteran receiver is inactive due to a groin injury that will officially cost him half the season, as this is the eighth game overall, and seventh in a row, that Jennings will miss.
Jennings is in the final year of his contract, so the continued absences could hurt his ability to secure a big contract as a free agent in 2013. Currently, Jennings' absences have cost him $200,000 in "per game active" roster bonuses along with a $25,000 incentive for being active in 12 games this season.
For the Giants, second-year defensive tackle Marvin Austin is a somewhat surprising inactive considering the club lost rookie defensive lineman Markus Kuhn to an injury before their bye week. Austin was a 2011 second round pick out of North Carolina who missed his rookie season with a pectoral injury and has four tackles in six games in 2012.
