NFL News : Packer is dealing with a worrisome injury.

Packer is dealing with a worrisome injury.


Published on by The Football Feed in NFL News

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.

Janis said his hand "got a little jammed up" during one of the ball-security drills.
The injury prevented Janis from participating in Friday's preseason contest against the Cleveland Browns, and might keep him out for most of the exhibition schedule.
When asked at the time how it would impact his ability to show he's worthy of a spot in the rotation, Janis said: "It doesn't help."

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.
