The Green Bay Packers are expected to face the Detroit Lions on Sunday without veteran defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins aggravated a strained calf in Sunday’s win over the 49ers.
Jenkins originally hurt his calf in pregame warm-ups against Minnesota on November 21. Jenkins had two sacks on Sunday to increase his total for the season to 7. That’s a career high.
The Packers expect to use either C.J. Wilson or second-year player Jarius Wynn to replace Jenkins.
Also on the injury front, FB Korey Hall suffered a sprained knee and it’s not likely that he’ll be ready to go at Detroit. WR Brett Swain has a knee contusion and is expected to be ready for Sunday’s game.
