Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings left the Metrodome with a bag of ice wrapped around the top of his right hand according to Tom Silverstain of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Jennings injured the hand on the Packers’ first series when he caught a 26-yard pass and was tackled along the Packers sideline.
Jennings took himself out of the game and had the hand looked at on the sideline, then returned the next time the Packers got the ball. He said the medical staff did not take an X-ray of the hand at halftime.
Jennings said his hand went numb for quite a while and when he did return – he caught six more passes for 121 yards, including a 79-yard touchdown – it was no easy chore to snare Aaron Rodgers’ fastballs.
“It hurts, it definitely hurts,” Jennings said of catching a pass. “I’ll say that.”
Jennings said he doesn’t know how he injured the hand.
“I know I took a hit on my hand,” he said. “We’ll see what the case is. I was able to continue playing. But for that time being, I really couldn’t feel anything.”
