GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -The Green Bay Packers placed defensive end Cullen Jenkins on injured reserve Wednesday because of a chest injury, ending his season.
Jenkins was hurt in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game at Tampa Bay while attempting to sack Buccaneers quarterback Brian Griese. Jenkins is believed to have a torn pectoral muscle, saying Monday that he couldn't lift his right arm above shoulder level.
Jenkins started the season as a leader of Green Bay's defensive line. In four games, he had 2 1/2 sacks, 10 quarterback pressures, a forced fumble and 18 tackles.
The Packers signed defensive end Kenny Pettway, a 6-foot-3, 248-pound third-year player who spent the past two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
