The Green Bay Packers may be without Greg Jennings, their number one wide receiver, for a bit longer – thanks to Superstorm Sandy.

Jennings was scheduled to travel to Philadelphia this week for the procedure, but the shutdown of the East Coast because of Sandy, the Packers receiver is still in Green Bay.

Jennings has been out for the past three weeks because of a lingering groin injury and decided to undergo surgery to repair the damage.

The surgery was to have a minimum of a three-week recovery period, but with this newest delay, Packers coach Mike McCarthy was hopeful today that the delay won’t be significant.

How long depends on when Jennings is able to reschedule.
