    Hmm I hope he can almost replace Jennings for a few weeks.

    He may get a few snaps. Wonder if we are going to activate him because of another teams interest?

    Perhaps he is the secret weapon. I was kind of hoping for a secret weapon on D, though. Lets give this guy a chance!

    With the risk of looking stupid 5 minutes from now, I don't think he'll get activated.

    I think there was a strong possibility of it happening, but with Jennings' injury not being severe, I think they'll keep the current personel (5 WRs) and wait till the playoffs.

    Haven't you heard Mike Neal is the secret weapon on D.;)

    we only have 4 receivers currently, driver, jones, jordy and cobb who can play in the next game. Is jennings still on the active roster? I thought you could replace injured players with other players, even if they are not on IR. This would make sense because of drivers age and cobb's inexperience.

    I think they are
    I've heard that they are going to activate Gurley and put So'oto on IR because he's constantly being plagued with back injuries. Plus we already have some solid depth at OLB as it is with Jones and Zombo.

    I'm personally all for it. It's been a while since we've had that true deep threat vertical receiver. I don't think he's going to be replacing Jennings by any means. But if he does get activated, it's going to give us some more depth on our receiver rotation while Jenning's is out.

    Not sure about secret weapon but from watching some preseason he does have some potential and it will be nice to be able to throw teams a curveball so to speak going into the playoffs. Another weapon that teams are going to have to gameplan for. If he in fact can deliver

    I hope you are correct. I would like to see Gurley get a chance.

    I want it to happen, and you can almost bet he will probably get get a TD in a game, since it seems like some new player gets one every other game. Also this may sound really bad, but activate Gurley as WR and put Cobb in as RB, if Saine can't make it.

    Nope, can't do that, Jennings is still on the roster.

    Like I said, I think they'll get by with just 4 active receivers and use more TE packages in these 3 games.

    We need to keep in mind that if they do activate Gurley they need to put another position on IR, and we're thin at several others, particularly at LB. And also, even if he does play ST, he'll have a very different role than a LB.

    Will they make all those changes just because Jennings won't play 3 "meaningless" games? Methinks not.

    Oh, and So'oto was a full participant in today's practice, so I doubt they'll IR him.

    I doubt they will activate Gurley just because of the Jennings situation. I think we will see him unsheathed in the playoffs.

    I hope to see Gurley this year. I am surprised he has stayed on the Packers and hasn't been picked up and signed to another teams's active roster yet. He and Chastin West made the preseason worth watching. Besides his receiving skills he has potential to block punts on special teams.

    Being from SC and also being a fan of the Gamecocks I had the opportunity to see Gurley play many times, needless to say I was pretty ecstatic when Green Bay picked up him last year and kept him on the practice squad. He's another big body possession receiver that will be great for those 3rd and shorts and red zone offense. I say sign him up and lets see what the SC boy can do!

    They haven't activated him yet, though.

    Well, the Packers have had outstanding success from the other SC recievers they've had.

    I like what I've seen so far from him, I hope he resolves his injuries and we see more of him in the playoffs.
