It appears the Green Bay Packers won’t be without their No.1 WR when they take the field on Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks.
Greg Jennings suffered a groin injury on the last drive of the teams season opening loss to the San Francisco 49ers, and missed their Thursday Night Football matchup against the Chicago Bears. Jennings was limited in practice all week, leaving his status doubtful entering the weekend. Then things suddenly got better for Greg Jennings, he was a full participant in practice on Saturday and Sunday, and reported no problems after testing out his groin injury. While Packers coach Mike McCarthy has still made it clear that Jennings is a “Game-Time Decision” and no decision has been made. The reason I think Greg Jennings will play is because he has said he is ready to play tonight, and while he isn’t 100% he feels he can play through the injury.
If Jennings does suit up for tonight, it could be a big boost to a Packers receiving game that was average at best last week against the Bears. Aaron Rodgers has struggled through 2 games, throwing 2 interceptions and never looking like the MVP of last season. Now Green Bay has a tough game in the raucous Quest Field, and will need everyone to contribute. If you have Greg Jennings on your fantasy team, feel comfortable to start him and expect at least 7 points.
