    I've been keeping an eye out here for some mucho important Jennings injury update info...Haven't seen anything recently...So when I saw this, I thought I'd post it:

    (found on yahoo)
    Greg Jennings: Nearly Activated This Week

    RotoWire.com Staff - RotoWire.com
    Monday, October 30, 2006
    Update: Jennings (sprained ankle) was nearly activated for Sunday's game against the Cards after a pre-game warm-up, but coach Mike McCarthy decided it wasn't worth risking further injury, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

    Recommendation: We'll track Jennings' status in the coming days, but the fact that he was so close to playing Sunday bodes well for his Week 9 availability.

    Sounds good. :thumbsup:

    P.S. I also saw this on packersnews.com 10/31 notebook:

    The Packers' other starting receiver, Greg Jennings, who missed Sunday's game with a sprained ankle, will be listed as questionable this week, McCarthy said. He was listed as doubtful going into the game against Arizona.


    "He worked out Sunday morning before the game, and he's close," McCarthy said. "We'll have a better idea about him on Wednesday, but I'm hopeful he'll go."

    I think someone had posted that info on Sunday..

    He was orginialy going to be out for a few weeks, but he had a Reggie White type of recovery on Thursday and Friday) now it looks like he is going to be ready for Buffalo

    but I say leave him out, and have him ready for the Vikings

    Yeah, it's tough to dig through all the threads and pick out if someone mentioned Jennings. Thought I'd start a new thread. Saw the Jennings injury update thread, but no one had posted on it since the 28th...

    Was eager to get some new info.

    I say he needs to play v. the Bills. This Bills defense will probably contain an attack of a constantly hobbled Driver, and practice squad players (although, Ruvell has looked good)...

    IMHO. He's had time...Needs to be "a go." Needless to say, we need every game at this point.

    I ready yesterday that he might practice today (Wednesday). Any insiders out there have any idea if he was indeed able to practice?

    This week's Dope Sheet has McCarthy saying Jennings is QUESTIONABLE.
    That in NFL terms is 50-50 chance of playing.
    Last week he was DOUBTFUL which was 75% chance of not playing.

    I would say reduced role this week.

    I'd also like to see him play, Magic, but I think that if he does come back this week, we've been fortunate. Ankle sprains can be pretty problematic. I wouldn't want to rush him back if he's anything short of 100 percent. I didn't like the idea of going without Jennings last week, but the offense did what they had to do and we avoided the risk of worsening the injury.

    However, the fact that he was almost able to play last week (if they are telling the truth) certainly bodes well for him and the Packers.

    If Jennings ankle continues to improve I would not be surprized to see him play against Buffalo.

    Good news if he comes back this week.

    Yeah---This is a bad turn of events. I'm not digging this.

    I've been converted...Just sit him another week.

    *sighs*

    Yeah, I have him in fantasy also... I'm going to stick with the wait and see approach for now I guess. If he were to somehow get in a full practice tomorrow, then I say all systems go, start him. But if not, and they say it's a "gametime decision" and all that, then I'm gonna sit him. Because even if he plays, he might not see too many snaps.

    Of course, if I sit him, they'll probably put him in and he'll score three touchdowns. :) That might be reason enough to do it, so that I'm helping the Packers..

    this is from that poster on the other forum ( seems like he is on the staff)

    .jennings is going to play. As of yesterday he was going to practice today ( thursday) so he is more probable than questionable...just a matter of him re-injuring it.

    Woodson is now doubtful...a game time decision

    Please people. This is Greg Jennings we're talking about here.

    He'll play even if he has to use a crutch.

    I think he'll play and I might actually start him, even against the advice of some of the fantasy writers on the web. I don't know, I've got until Sunday morning to decide so I guess I won't rush it. But every once in awhile, a big time player comes off an injury just ready to explode...

    To be clear, I'm not offering any fantasy advice on this one, lol.. I'm in last place! It will be a tough decision for Jennings owners everywhere.

    But more important that all that nonsense are two things: 1) a Pack victory, and 2) a full Jennings recovery and a great rest of the season for him!!

    I'm in the same boat. I'm fighting for my playoff life.

    So I had to go with Curtis off the waiver wire instead.

    I can't have Jennings either DNP, or out in the first Q after tweeking the injury.

    Just my 2 pennies.

    Thanks for the better news about Woodson. The Pack will be much better off with him on the field.

    Excellent news. Woodson will be crucial in this game. Buffalo has some pretty good recievers (Lee, Price, and Evans). All big play threats.
