Greg Jennings working on conditioning

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has been on the shelf for a long while now thanks to a torn abdominal muscle and it has taken a toll on his conditioning.

Jennings ran some routes during Packers practice on Wednesday and said that he felt no pain at all as a result of his injury. What he did feel is the same thing many of us have felt after a return to serious physical activity after prolonged injury or illness.

“There were some routes I was able to push it,” he said, via the Associated Press. “I pretty much pushed myself to see how much I can take. As far as speed, I got up to full speed on a few routes. Felt really great. My wind is horrible right now so I’m trying to get my wind under wraps. But other than that, I felt great.”

Coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that it was a stretch to think Jennings would be able to play this week against the Giants, but Jennings wasn’t willing to be so pessimistic.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jennings practiced again on Thursday, so his groin must have responded well to Wednesday's session. If he does play against the Giants on Sunday night, it will probably be in a limited fashion given the depth of the Packers receiving corps.
