Green Bay Packers' defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins is out for the season with a torn right pectoral muscle suffered last Sunday at Tampa Bay.
Agent Brian Levy says surgery will be necessary. He called it devastating, since Jenkins was really coming into his own this year.
The fifth-year pro was second on the Packers with two-and-a-half sacks and he had 10 of the team's 28 quarterback pressures.
Jenkins was solid at defensive end on early running downs and in the middle on passing downs.
The Packers are expected to put Jenkins on injured reserve today (Wednesday).
Tuesday, they signed free-agent defensive end Kenny Pettway, who was released by Jacksonville at the end of its training camp.
He had three sacks in 17 games with the Jaguars over two years.
Pettway was a passenger in the SUV in which former Jaguars' teammate Richard Collier was shot 14 times outside an apartment complex Sept. 2. Agent Will Jordan said Pettway is a good man, he and Collier are good friends and there's nothing negative about him.
Jolly's legal woes
Packers' defensive tackle Johnny Jolly was supposed to appear in court in Houston Tuesday, but that appearance got pushed back to Oct. 28.
Jolly was arrested this summer for allegedly possessing at least 200 grams of codeine. Police said he was in a car with several friends and one reportedly had a bag of marijuana, while another was said to be carrying an illegal weapon.
A Texas grand jury has not considered Jolly's case yet. If it doesn't, there still a chance a judge can order a trial.
The case has been delayed several times. Hurricane Ike was blamed for one of those hold-ups.
