    Jansen headed to injured reserve

    Green Bay - The Green Bay Packers will be seeking a long snapper after making the decision Saturday to put J.J. Jansen on injured reserve.


    Jansen probably will undergo surgery to repair either a torn or strained lateral collateral ligament in his left knee, agent Paul Sheehy said.


    A rookie free agent from Notre Dame, Jansen was injured after a high snap Thursday against Tennessee that punter Jon Ryan pulled down and then ran for 34 yards.


    Another long snapper who was with the Packers early in camp, Thomas Gafford, was told Friday that he would waived today by the Chicago Bears.

    That kinda sucks. I knew it wasn't good when they showed him iced up on the sideline after that play.

    Might as well sign Gafford at this point unless they honestly think there's a better LS out there to pull of waivers or something.

    I suppose we should roll out the 'welcome back Gafford' banners now.

    There goes our season.































    Actually, Greg Jennings can be the long snapper.
