See Ya Later Greg Jennings!

Greg Jennings injured

No, no. We’re not talking about the very real possibility that Greg Jennings and the Green Bay Packers part ways after the season. Nor are we referring to what we think are pretty much idiotic rumblings that Jennings could be traded during the season (yeah, I’ll take your injured receiver who doesn’t have a contract after this year!). We’re talking about the fact that Greg Jennings is a broken man.

Not broken like his old lady just left him and took his dog. Broken as in he’s been standing on the sideline more than he’s been on the field. You see, Jennings is suddenly injury prone. Like Justin Harrell.

The Packers have already ruled Jennings out of this weekend’s game. It will be the second game he’s missed this season. Jennings hasn’t finished a game this season either.

Jennings has a lingering groin injury. Instead of letting him get just healthy enough to play and then Jennings going out and tweaking the injury, the Packers have finally decided to shut him down until he’s fully healed.

How long will that be? Hard to say, but the only place it really matters is in your fantasy league, where you probably spent a second-round draft pick on Jennings.

What are we doing? Trashing the Packers No. 1 receiver?

Well… Jennings only has 12 catches for 78 yards this season. In fact, his Old Spice commercials are far more entertaining than watching Greg Jennings playing football.

In the meantime, Jordy Nelson has stepped up with 21 for 260, James Jones has 16 for 191 and Randall Cobb has 18 for 162.

In other words, this isn’t really that big of a deal for the Packers.

It’s a big deal for your fantasy team and a big deal for Greg Jennings, who hasn’t shown much so far in his contract year.

    James Jones is on the verge of having a breakout season and with Jennings being down more opportunities for Randall Cobb as well. That catch Jones made against the Saints was sick.

    DeSean Jackson and Vincent Jackson both missed time last year due to hold outs and injuries and for being an all around headache. Both signed contracts for $10 mil a year this offseason.

    In other words, this isn’t hurting Jennings’ value a whole lot.

    This IS hurting the Packer offense. Jennings brings something to the offense that no one else can replicate. Still, the end of the season is more important than the middle. If Jennings needs to heal up, then now is the time to sit him.

    Agreed. Jennings isn’t just talented. I think he brings a positive vibe to the receiving care and to the team. If Ted gave up on Greg that would be a mistake on his part and he would have to pay for it with another team adding him and to they’re success. Greg needs to be resign to another long term deal for sure. I’d say give him 2 or 3 more games and he will be close to 100%.

    Monte, I think you are downplaying GJ’s value. I don’t think he’s in Calvin Johnson’s league, but he is the Packers best receiver. No doubt they are missing him, and will miss him even more next year when he’s on another team.
