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.
