Jeff Janis' return is open-ended

ESPN - [Full Article]

All coach Mike McCarthy would say about Green Bay Packers receiver Jeff Janis is that Janis won’t play in Thursday’s preseason game against the Oakland Raiders.

Beyond that, the timeline for Janis’ return from his fractured right hand remains open ended.

“He won’t practice this week,” McCarthy said before Sunday’s practice. “I really haven’t talked to [team physician Dr.] Pat [McKenzie] as far as the specifics of his timeline and so forth. He will not be available this week.”

At the very least, it means Janis will miss half of the Packers’ preseason games. He did not play in Friday's opener against the Cleveland Browns, two days after he was injured in a practice drill.

Fantasy Impact: 

Considering Janis has a broken bone in his hand, the expectation is that he will miss much more time, perhaps even the entire preseason, putting in question whether he would be available for the Sept. 11 regular-season opener at Jacksonville.
