GREEN BAY, Wis. — Greg Jennings had to delay his surgery by two days due to Hurricane Sandy, but the Packers star wide receiver confirmed in style that he went through the outpatient procedure Thursday.
Jennings tweeted a picture of himself in his hospital bed with the message, “Surgery went well tweeps!! #begreat”
Jennings’ surgery was to repair a rectus abdominis tear, an injury that was initially suffered on Green Bay’s final offensive drive in Week 1. The 29-year-old two-time Pro Bowler attempted to rehabilitate what he thought was a groin injury for more than a month before a second medical opinion revealed that the problem was worse than originally believed.
Prior to the surgery, Jennings vowed to return to the field this season. In the three games he’s played in so far, Jennings has 12 catches for 78 yards and one touchdown. He is coming off five straight 900-plus-yard seasons and in the final year of his contract with the Packers.
