Packers announce Jolly out at halftime

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Green Bay Packers announced at halftime that right defensive end Johnny Jolly would not return to Sunday’s game against the New York Giants due to a groin injury.

It is unknown when Jolly hurt his groin, though it was a pre-existing injury.

He originally hurt his groin in the fourth quarter of last week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

C.J. Wilson replaced Jolly at right defensive end.

Jolly came into Sunday’s game with eight solo tackles and a sack.

The team also announced that cornerback James Nixon has a knee injury and will not return.
