Greg Jennings Re-injures Groin in 28-27 Win over Saints

If you have Greg Jennings on your fantasy football team, the question marks surrounding his health have apparently gone nowhere. Jennings did play in the Packers 28-27 in over the Saints on Sunday, even catching a touchdown but he left the game and has apparently re-injured his groin.

Jennings groin was the reason he was questionable to play these last two weeks and although he’s played it seems it’s not without cost. Sure Jennings has played with an injured groin, but he hasn’t given it any time to heal and the Packers may need to pay in the long term for Jennings refusal to sit on the bench and rest.

It’s not like the Packers are going to be scouring the waiver wires to try and find a replacement for Jennings if he’s lost for multiple weeks. The Packer are perhaps the deepest team at the wide receiver spot in the entire NFL, but as writers have pointed out the Packersmay have a slew of wide outs but they only have one Greg Jennings.

He only played 13 snaps and the official diagnosis on Jennings is unknown but the fact that it held him out of a second half the Packers needed him in is more than just noteworthy. Even if his groin isn’t any worse than it was when he entered today’s game, expect the Packers to rest Jennings for the foreseeable future as they can’t afford to have him at anything less than 100 percent.
