Jenkins hopeful he can play again this season

Cullen Jenkins sat out the Lions game with a strained calf injury, and coach Mike McCarthy all but ruled him out of Sunday's game against the Patriots. But Jenkins hasn't given up hope of playing again this season, if not in the Packers' game against the New York Giants on Dec. 26, then in the regular-season finale against Chicago on Jan. 2. "These muscle injuries, hard to tell because you never know when itís going to be to that point when you turn the corner and start feeling better," Jenkins said today in the locker room. "But until then weíll just have to keep taking it easy, try to let it heal itself. Thereís not too much you can actually do." When asked if he's given any thought to missing the rest of the season, Jenkins said: "You try not to think about it, thereís still a few more weeks left. Thereís still plenty of time. I donít really think about that too much." Jenkins said the calf hurts when he walks. "Itís stiff and tender, pretty much every step I take I feel it," he said. "So right now Iíll go home, put it up and rest it. Just keep doing that." Jenkins has never suffered a calf injury prior to this season. He thinks his† off-season training regimen might have been a contributing factor. "Iíve been talking with the strength coaches about it," Jenkins said. "It could have something to do with the off-season workouts that I was doing this year, especially when I went back on my own, doing a lot of distance jog stuff to try to drop weight or keep my weight down. Things like that they think contributed to it."
