    Talented player but seems to be nicked up alot.. hopefully this is just an unlucky streak but I hope we don't look back after two or three years and see another talent that couldn't stay on the field... see Davis and Martin.

    He'll play.

    How is it more of the same anyway? He had one injury prior to this one, it just happened to be a very serious high ankle sprain.

    I sure hope he can play.....and doesn't damage himself worse.
    What is it with the hamstrings anyway? I don't remember that many of those problems back in the 1970's and 80's.

    Yeah I'm starting to get that vibe out of Jennings too. I think it's something we're going to have to deal with. The question is whether he's a Terrell Owens or Robert Ferguson. TO is often hurt as well but it never effected his upside or production. Fergy on the other hand just couldn't get anywhere because of injuries.

    None the less week 1 into the season and if he's out then so be it.

    Every football player in the NFL gets nicked up almost every week. The great ones play through nicks. It's too early to label Jennings. Let's give him a chance

    The good thing is that we have better backups than last season. And when does Koren come back?

    I think he's eligible for re-enstatement after week 2. Not bad!

    My theory is performance-enhancers. Not neccesarily every player who gets hammys, but just some.


    Building muscle at an unnatural rate can lead to torn/strained tendons and muscles. I think it's a factor.

    no one like to work out their hamstrings, so their over-developed quadriceps cause an unnatural strain on their hamstrings.

    I have Jennings on my fantasy team too, so this could be a double whammy of pain if he doesn't play.

    I think he will though. Jennings is only pretending to be human to trick the eagles.

    Face it.

    Sounds like he's come down with a bad case of "Ferguson-itis".

    c'mon Greg, suck it up. If DD can play, GJ should be able to get on the field.

    As others have noted, this is only his second injury, and we don't even know yet if this one will keep him out of a game. So count me among those who are not concerned about Jennings.

    The only thing that worries me is: Will this be one of those nagging injuries that effects him all year. That messed up his rookie year, being injured.

    More of the same.


    McCarthy said Jennings told him he "feels good" about playing Sunday, but the trainers will have the final call.

    "Hopefully they tell me the same thing," McCarthy said. "That's sometimes the problem."

    If Jennings can't go, James Jones would start and Ruvell Martin would become the third receiver.

    "Definitely I'm expecting Greg to play," Jones said. "I don't think his injury is that serious."

    Agreed.

    Also, the word 'Ferguson' should be a banned word from now on.

    He apparently had a noticeable limp on Friday, and my fantasy web site news update says he won't play, and that Jones will be number 2.

    I have Jennings on my fantasy team as well, but I wasn't putting a lot of hope in him becoming one of my starters, at least at first. We have a round 15 "floater" pick and now I'm really, really wishing I had used it to nab Jones (I took jennings in round 10 or so I believe).

    Oh, that was because he was working on a new dance move that will soon grip the entire nation.

    I agree with Trom, Jennings is only pretending to be human to trick the Eagles.

    And BTW trom, screw you for taking Jennings. :evil: I was going draft him with my next pick, but you beat me to it.

    How can you have a team named after Greg without having Gregorious on the team himself. :(
