Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has 949 yards receiving and nine touchdown catches this season. Twenty of those yards came before he was carted to the locker room with a knee injury partway through the team's 46-16 drubbing of the Detroit Lions.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that "the most likely scenario seems to be a torn medial collateral ligament, which does not require surgery and generally requires two to six weeks of recovery." Jennings will get an MRI Monday.

"It didn't look very good, so we'll see what the MRI says tomorrow and hopefully, you know, we got a bye wrapped up, so he really has close to five weeks before the next game, or our playoff game," quarterback Aaron Rodgers said, according to the paper. "So hopefully we can get him ready for that."

The undefeated team is starting to have injuries pile up. It also lost running back Brandon Saine and defensive end Ryan Pickett to concussions during the Lions game.l
