Packers WR Greg Jennings will miss "a couple of weeks" because of a knee sprain suffered in the team's Week 14 victory over the Raiders, head coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday.

Jennings twisted his knee between a pair of Oakland defenders in the game and had to be carted off the field. The team leader in receptions might miss the remainder of the regular season recovering from the injury. Along with a first-round playoff bye, Jennings might not see the field for a game again until Jan. 14-15.

"It always can be worse. That's why you have further testing," McCarthy said. "We feel fortunate."
