Jennings Out Two To Three

Greg Jennings

The Green Bay Packers will be without receiver Greg Jennings for the next two to three weeks. Jennings sprained his knee against Oakland on Sunday.

If there’s good news here, it’s that Jennings will be back for the playoffs. The Packers will play their first playoff game on January 14 or 15.

Jennings currently has 67 receptions for 949 yards and nine touchdowns. While the Packers will probably miss him to some degree, I’d expect Jermichael Finley and perhaps even Donald Driver to take on a larger role during Jennings’ absence.

    Honestly we’ve been lucky so far this season…Nick Collins has been our only significant loss…

    He will come out like gangbusters in the playoffs. Rest up Greg, in a month you will be ready to kick some ass. Go Pack!

    I’d like to see Rodgers continue to chase and burn down QB records. Might be selfish of me but let’s Favre’s name down atop of all those lists. Seasons like this don’t come along all too often (but for Rodgers I’m sure he’ll have even better).

    Rodgers is 3rd in total passing yards – could eclipse Brady with a solid 350 this week

    Rodgers is chasing (and you hear nothing about this either) Tom Brady’s record of 50 TD’s set in 2007. Rodgers is just 11 behind tieing that mark with three games to go. If Rodgers averaged 3 TD’s per/game for the next three games he still wouldn’t tie that mark, he’d need two games with 4 TD’s and without Jennings I don’t see that happening. He’ll at least break Favre’s single season Pack TD record with 40 tho.

    Rodgers completion percentage is now also 1.0 % lower than Brees, hopefully that comes up in the next three games too.

    The only reason I’m nagging about the stats is because every year people find stupid reasons to screw guys over like Rodgers who deserve the MVP, like idiots who think Tim Teboned should get it. That’s enough to make me puke in typing that but you know it’s true. Rodgers needs to lead in as many categories as possible and even break a few records to get a unanimous vote.

      I think that down the stretch, Driver will be more reliable – been there, done that. The pressure of the contract and hype is getting to Finley. After that CF in the end zone Sunday, did AR ever go back to him?

    I read Tori Gurley might get brought up from the practice squad. I’d be excited to see what he can do in a few games down the stretch.

    I’m actually excited to see what this offense looks like. I would LOVE to see Gurley come in but I don’t think it happens. Sure would be sweet to see more TEs in 5 wr sets though. You know, 3 TE and 2 WR and so on.
