Greg Jennings Out For Week 5, Possibly Longer

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy mentioned that Greg Jennings has officially been ruled out for Week 5’s game, via Tyler Dunne.

Packers WR Greg Jennings wouldn’t offer a timetable for his return.

“We don’t know what the timetable is,” Jennings said. “All I know is we’re going to take it one day at a time and hopefully it gets better before Sunday. But odds of that happening, they’re odd.”

Jennings has been hampered by a groin injury in recent weeks, and has said that he wants to be closer to 100 percent before returning to game action.  James Jones, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb figure to see plenty of playing in the coming weeks.

Packers WR Greg Jennings mentioned that it probably makes more sense for him to allow his injured groin enough time to properly heal rather than return to game action and risk further damage.

I would definitely err to the side of caution when it comes to something like this simply because if it’s going to continue to be an issue, I’d rather take the time that I need to eliminate it altogether,” Jennings said, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

This could end up costing him a few weeks, but it’s really hard to say for sure given that certain players heal faster than others.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy mentioned that WR Greg Jennings re-injured his groin during the early portion of Sunday’s win over the Saints.

McCarthy added that Jennings “could not open up into a full stride,” which ultimately forced him to sit out the remainder of the game. “We’re back where we were a couple weeks ago,” said McCarthy of Jennings’ current status, per Tyler Dunne.

James Jones put together a very solid effort on Sunday, so both he and Randall Cobb figure to see more playing time while Jennings is out. The Packers may end up sitting Jennings until his injury is close to 100 percent, rather risk any further damage. Well have updates regarding his situation throughout the week.
