Greg Jennings to go through run test Thursday

St. Paul Pioneer Press - [Full Article]

There's a chance that Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings will return this week from a groin injury, but don't expect a prediction on whether it will happen until Thursday at the earliest.

Jennings will continue on the rest and rehabilitation plan he began Oct. 1 after aggravating the injury against the New Orleans Saints. He has missed three games while recuperating but is getting close to a return.

The plan, however, is for Jennings to practice only one day this week if it turns out he's capable of playing. The last time, the medical staff thought he practiced too much during the week and that resulted in a setback during the game.

So Jennings will go through a run test Thursday, and if he passes he'll be given an opportunity to practice Friday.

Fantasy Impact: 

The team wants to play it safe with Jennings, so it'd be a bit of a surprise if he comes back this week, especially against the Jags. If he does, he's a bit of a risk in the likely event the Pack gets up big and limits his time on the field. But the good news is he seems close to getting back.
