While rumors are spreading about the severity of the injury to the knee of Jared Abbrederis, another rookie wide receiver is dealing with a different type of ailment:
Finally got the diagnosis on Jeff Janis: Shingles. Expects to be back Monday.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) August 1, 2014
Jeff Janis' mystery illness was *drum roll* shingles #Packers— Wes Hodkiewicz (@WesHod) August 1, 2014
Yeah, no drum roll necessary. That just sucks.
As Demovsky notes, Janis will be on the practice field when the team returns on Monday after Saturday night's Family Night scrimmage.
