Jeff Janis's season is not going according to plan.
According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky, the Green Bay Packers' receiver suffered a fracture in his right hand during Wednesday's practice. According to a source, Janis sustained a fracture to at least one of the bones in his right hand and was sporting a large ice pack wrapped around his right hand afterward.
This injury is a major blow for the former seventh-round pick who is hoping to finally secure a lasting spot in the Packers' receiving rotation. Janis ended last season with a seven-catch, 145-yard, two-touchdown performance in the Packers' playoff loss at Arizona. He has shown flashes of brilliance in limited action, but is still "a work in progress" according to Packers offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett.
Hopefully Janis can recover quickly from this latest setback and finally secure a starting role in the Packers' offense.
