Greg Jennings had surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle Thursday, two days after it was originally scheduled to take place, according to Mike Spofford of Packers.com.

The surgery was supposed to happen on Tuesday in Philadelphia but was postponed until Thursday because of Hurricane Sandy.

"The procedure went very well," said Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, according to Spofford. McCarthy also noted that Jennings would be out for at least a couple of weeks.

Jennings was originally injured in the Packers Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. However, he missed only one game and returned to action in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks. Jennings also played in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints, but he left the game after re-aggravating the injury and hasn’t played since.

In those three games, Jennings had 12 receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown. Last season, Jennings had 949 receiving yards and nine touchdown receptions, despite missing three games.

The Packers have gone 3-1 since Jennings went out, but the offense struggled last week in a 24-15 win over the Jaguars. With Cedric Benson out for the season and Jordy Nelson and John Kuhn nursing injuries, the Packers offense is a little less dangerous.

However, with a game against the fading Cardinals on Sunday and a bye the following week, the Packers offense should be a lot healthier by the time they face the Detroit Lions in Week 11. And with a trip to New York to take on the Giants scheduled for Nov. 25, let’s hope Jennings is back in the lineup for what could be one of the best games of the season.
