Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings will have surgery on an abdominal tear Tuesday in Philadelphia in hopes of returning to the field later this season.
WBAY-TV reported Thursday that the surgery would not be season ending.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy had said earlier on his radio show that Jennings might need surgery but didn't confirm the news that Jennings would undergo a procedure.
Jennings suffered a groin injury in the Packers' opener. He hasn't played in the past three games and missed four of the last six while waiting for the injury to heal.
