Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins is most likely out for the rest of the season because of an injury at Tampa Bay. His agent Brian Levy said that Jenkins' torn pectoral muscle will require surgery, so a come-back this season would be almost impossible. Jenkins was injured as he grabbed Buccaneers quarterback Brian Griese during a sack attempt early in the fourth quarter.

In the locker room Monday, Jenkins said he was unable to lift his right arm above shoulder level. "He's going to need surgery, so he's going to have to go on injured reserve," Levy told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "The timing couldn't be worse.... It's a big blow, but he'll come back from this stronger." The Packers made no formal announcement about Jenkins' status, because Ted Thompson was traveling on a scouting trip and he was unavailable. Jenkins had started the season as a leader of Green Bay's defensive line. In four games, he had 2½ sacks, 10 quarterback pressures, a forced fumble and 18 tackles.  

The Packer defense just lost veteran pro-bowler Al Harris to a spleen injury suffered in the loss to Dallas. Harris is expected to miss at least three more games. Linebacker A.J. Hawk suffered a groin injury Sunday and could miss next Sunday's game against Atlanta. Safeties Nick Collins (back), Atari Bigby (hamstring) and Aaron Rouse (knee) are all battling injuries, and cornerback Charles Woodson is playing with a broken toe that has prevented him from practicing the past three weeks. On offense, starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a sprained right shoulder, left tackle Chad Clifton has a hamstring injury and running back Ryan Grant has been nursing a training-camp hamstring injury for the first four weeks of the season.

 

 

The Packers are banged up... BAD... and it is definitely showing.
