Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has been sitting off the field with a groin injury, but that doesn’t mean his presence isn't being felt around the team facilities.

Fellow wideout James Jones went out to the team parking lot Monday to find that his Chevy Avalanche was missing all four of its tires and was neatly decorated with colorful drawings from front to back. The interior was also filled with silly string.

Jennings confirmed he was the culprit with a tweet Monday afternoon:

This what I do o people who try to prank me. Got Cha James Jones89 twitter.com/GregJennings/s…

The prank was apparently in retaliation to one that James pulled on Jennings earlier in the season. On Jennings’ 29th birthday, Jones and presumably other Packers teammates celebrated the occasion like any good teammate would—by drawing vulgar pictures and filling Jennings’ vehicle with packing peanuts.

"They've been doing that stuff for years, so you expect it," Jordy Nelson said Tuesday (via USA Today). "I'm surprised he drove to work today."

Jennings got his revenge, albeit nearly a month later, but he was apparently waiting for Jones’ son's birthday because "Happy birthday Lil J.J." was written across the passenger window.

The pranks are all in good fun, and it seems like the Packers wide receivers have as much chemistry away from the field as they have on it. Jones has already tied his career-high in touchdowns through seven weeks of the season, and the Packers' prolific passing attack looks like it is hitting its stride.

Jennings has been limited this season with a nagging groin injury. He has only 12 catches for 78 yards and a touchdown and will become a free agent at the end of the year.

The Packers are looking to run their win streak to three with a game at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday.
