Green Bay Packers star wide receiver Greg Jennings looks ready to go for the team’s Monday Night Football showdown against the Seattle Seahawks after taking every snap during the team’s practice today. Head coach Mike McCarthy said, “Greg looked good today. I’ll tell you, he made a big jump from earlier in the week. Practiced well. His examination (Sunday) morning will be the key on whether he goes or not, but I thought he looked like himself today.”
Jennings was unable to play in the Packers Thursday Night Football game in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears with a groin injury and is officially listed as questionable on the Packers injury report. He sustained the groin injury late in the Packers Week 1 loss against the San Francisco 49ers after catching five passes.
The fact that he “looked like himself” means that we should expect Jennings to play on Monday night against Seattle, but he won’t be 100% after having a setback early in the week. However, he did say yesterday that he would play on Monday and things are looking up for the top WR to help Green Bay out against a tough Seahawks defense.
McCarthy also told the official site that he feels “good” about right end C.J. Wilson, who is also suffering from a groin injury. The starting DE is also listed as questionable for Week 3’s game and has been limited in practice during the entire week. Wilson can play on Monday, but I would expect solid second-round rookie Jerel Worthy to receive plenty of snaps regardless.
