    I hear ya kitten lol. My teams love to get hurt. Ugh. But, the football Gods have to be kind here. This HAS to be the biggest scare the team gets before the playoffs. Please!!!!

    I figured it must have been around a grade 2 but sometimes it depends also on a players personal threshold of pain and also how fast they heal, some just heal faster then others. And for playoff games sometimes players can often put up with the pain much easier when it's all on the line.

    Tracy Porter in 2009 suffered an MCL tear and he ended up coming back within 3 to 4 weeks.

    It's actually a blessing this is an MCL and not worse. Other knee injuries could have ended his season.

    Whew. I was reliving Ryan Broyles again, and that one ruined our college season.

    Great news. Starting to believe in this 19-0 stuff. Big break for the Pack.

    I was at the gym today and saw the update on Sportscenter that Jennings will only be out 2-3 weeks. I literally did a handspring right there in front of the TV. Thank Goodness.

    I also heard the Tori Gurley is going to be activated off the Practice Squad soon. Can anybody confirm or deny this>

    I think we are going to be running the ball A LOT more these last few games. I was very impressed with how well we ran the ball yesterday. Perfect timing for it as well. A lot of people around here were saying our run game sucked or was non-existent and Grant came out and had a great day pounding the rock.

    like I said, I think you should probably look at the running game, which I bet improves over the last couple of weeks. Someone like Jordy or James Jones might have a big game and you could chalk it up to them stepping up while Greg Jennings is out but lets not be results oriented, they all big games during the year when jennings was in the game. I think we are going to average more rushing attempts per game over the last weeks than we have all year, thats just my 2 cents.

    Yes, I believe you are correct The Packers are going to turn more to the running game. I think they were going to do that even before Jennings went down. I would like to see Jones,Finley,Cobb get more receptions. All is good. Just win Baby.

    You really only associate "franchise" with the QB, but I think it's safe to say Jennings is a franchise WR. I don't think we'll even notice that he's off the field given our ridiculous WR depth chart, but maaan... just sucks to see him injured.

    Neal's injury was always considered more serious. And the difference in healing while constantly having to endure the force of Neal's 300 pounds vs the force of Jennings' <200 pounds can't be overstated.

    I hope it continues and gets better.
    How do you, or anyone, think the defenses of KC, Bears or Lions stack up against the Packers running game?

    It appeared to get twisted when the defender landed on the bottom of his leg and rolled. It kind of rolled the knee as the ankle got shifted. Although it looked painful, it didn't look too awful to me.

    All of the above and possibly a player to be named later! We have an embarrassment of riches among these guys, and they care about each other. They will all step up.

    I'd also like to see Cobb get some more time with the ball. We've seen what he can do on ST, but I really want to see what he can do as a receiver. I think with the absence of Jennings, guys like these are going to get the ball more to compensate. We already kind of know what we got in Finley and Driver, I'd like to see some guys who don't get the ball as often get their chance to prove themselves.
