Speaking at a Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County fundraiser event on Monday, Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings was non-committal about his playing status for Sunday's game at Indianapolis a day after aggravating a groin injury in the Packers' win over the New Orleans Saints.

Jennings, who has yet to visit a doctor this week, said he always expects to play but added he'd give serious consideration to sitting out until the injury, which he initially suffered in Green Bay's season-opener, is fully healed.

"That's always in the back of the mind," Jennings said. "I would definitely err to the side of caution when it comes to something like this simply because if it's going to continue to be an issue, I'd rather take the time that I need to eliminate it altogether versus going out there and having it reoccur time after time and continue to have setbacks.

"It's frustrating, but it's something that comes with the territory when you're playing this game."

Jennings also gave his thoughts regarding last week's return of the NFL's locked-out officials.

Six days after losing to the Seattle Seahawks on a controversial, game-ending touchdown pass that was upheld after review by the league's replacement refs, the Packers were once again subjected to a slew of questionable calls against the Saints.

"Gotta give them the benefit of the doubt. It's their first game back," Jennings said. "They didn't have preseason. So they're gonna be some missed, but I thought other than that the game went smooth. The calls were precise. They made 'em, we got the ball back in play. But there were some calls where I was like, "Are you kidding me?'

"… That's gonna be the case throughout the entire season. They're not going to make every single call, the correct call. And they know that, and we know that. And when they do make the correct call, we're still going to complain about it. So that's just the nature of the game."
