Greg Jennings Injury: How It Can Help the Green Bay Packers

When Greg Jennings went down with a knee injury Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, I probably wasn't the only one to scream at my TV, nor was I the only one who wondered how his injury could hurt the Packers' chances at repeating as Super Bowl champs.

Let's think about it. Greg Jennings is an elite wide receiver; no debate needed. If you take Jennings away from the Packers receiving corps, it goes from elite to...well, elite, especially with Aaron Rodgers calling the shots. Jordy Nelson, Donald Driver, James Jones and Randall Cobb are a very good group of receivers.

With that being said, Jennings and Nelson as starting receivers probably scares a defense a little more than Nelson and Driver.

The fact of the matter is that Greg Jennings' injury hurt the Green Bay Packers. They will be missing their biggest playmaker for two to three weeks with an MCL sprain, but he will thankfully be back for the playoffs.

Although this situation seems bad for the Packers, a lot of good can come out of it.
