Cullen Jenkins May Miss “A Couple Weeks”
In a Monday press conference, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that Cullen Jenkins re-aggravated the calf strain that has already caused him to miss time this season. When asked how much time Jenkins would miss, McCarthy seemed uncertain.
“It may be a couple weeks,” said McCarthy. “He feels better today than he did with the initial diagnosis last night…but I don’t see Cullen making it this week.”
Jenkins was injured in the final two minutes of Sunday’s 34-16 victory over San Francisco. Jenkins’ two sacks earned him the defensive game ball from the coaching staff.
McCarthy added that rookie C.J. Wilson or second-year pro Jarius Wynn will replace Jenkins in the lineup.
McCarthy also said fullback Korey Hall will miss this Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions due to a knee strain, but wide receiver Brett Swain (knee contusion) could have returned to the game if needed.
Wide receiver Donald Driver had his wrist wrapped after the game, but McCarthy said the injury is minor.
“The swelling went down,” said McCarthy. “So I don’t foresee Donald having any problems being up this week.”
