Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Monday that wideout Greg Jennings suffered a sprained left knee in this weekend's win over the Oakland Raiders and will be out 2-3 weeks.
"I think it will be safe to say he'll be back for playoffs," McCarthy said during his Monday news conference.
A league source told NFL Network's Albert Breer earlier in the day that the Packers believed Jennings' knee injury was to his medial collateral ligament.
McCarthy said Jennings, who underwent tests to determine the severity of the injury, was at the Packers' team facility Monday and was in good spirits.
"He's upbeat," McCarthy said, "was in here for treatment and had a chance to go through process with medical staff.
" ... I don't have a detailed treatment plan for you, but he'll be in rehab for the next couple of weeks."
The injury to Jennings also brought up the question of if the Packers planned to rest key players during the season's final couple of games, provided they lock up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win this Sunday over the Kansas City Chiefs.
McCarthy said he has had conversations with general manager Ted Thompson about the team's strategy in such a situation, but he gave no indication of what the organization's philosophy is.
