Greg Jennings out, Jermichael Finley questionable

Greg Jennings isn't particularly close to playing football again.

On Friday, the Green Bay Packers ruled him out for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans because of his groin injury. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said at his Friday news conference that Jennings was six days away from even trying out his ailing groin again.

The Packers also listed tight ends Jermichael Finley (shoulder) and D.J. Williams (hamstring) and defensive tackle B.J. Raji (ankle) as (questionable). Raji sounds unlikely to play after not making it through practice Friday. Finley's injury comes down to "pain tolerance." We'd guess that he'll suit up.

The ATL crew has a surprising amount of faith that the Packers will pull off an upset in Houston despite all the injuries. Maybe it's because it's so hard to imagine this Packers squad sinking to 2-4.
