Green Bay Packers' Greg Jennings to have surgery

Greg Jennings' groin issue is not going away. After seeing a specialist this week, the Green Bay Packers wide receiver has decided to go under the knife. 

Jennings told reporters Thursday that he was undergoing surgery on his torn groin Oct. 30 in Philadelphia. Jennings noted he'd be able to return later in the season but said there wasn't a timetable.

Jennings has just 78 yards on 12 catches in three games in what's turning into a lost season for the two-time Pro Bowl receiver. James Jones and Randall Cobb have stepped up big in Jennings' absence. In retrospect, Jennings wishes he didn't try to play against the Seattle Seahawks on "Monday Night Football" after first suffering the injury in Week 1.

With the way the Packers' offense is rolling, they should be able to survive Jennings' absence. He can get healthy and be ready to help them in time for a playoff push.
