Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday that receiver Greg Jennings’ knee sprain will keep him out “a couple of weeks” and believes he’ll be back in time for the playoffs.

It appears the Packers dodged a bit of a bullet. McCarthy said Jennings was in good spirits on Monday.

“It always can be worse. That’s why you have further testing,” McCarthy said. “We feel fortunate.”

McCarthy didn’t put a specific timetable on the injury, but said with the initial prognosis of 2-3 weeks, he expects Jennings back in time for the playoffs. The Packers have clinched a first-round bye in the NFC and will play their first playoff game at home on either Jan. 14 or 15.
