Greg Jennings suffered a concussion

There was only one thing not to like about the Packers’ starting offense on Friday night in Arizona.  Wide receiver Greg Jennings left the game in the first quarter and didn’t return.

Jennings suffered a concussion when he got sandwiched between Cardinals cornerback Bryant McFadden and safety Aaron Francisco after making a catch.  Jennings stayed down on the turf for a while, but he was up and joking with teammates on the sidelines a short time later.

After the game, Jennings said he suffered a concussion and admitted that he been knocked unconscious for a moment.

“Yeah for a second or two,” he said.  “It’s part of football.  I’m good
now.  Everything’s working normal.  I called the wife and told her
everything’s good, and I’m good to go.”

The Packers didn’t seem overly concerned about Jennings, as he never left the sideline for tests while the game was in progress.  The good news is that he’s got two weeks to spend healing before there will be any need to get him back on the field.

With nine touchdowns on 12 possessions, the Packers’ starting offense appears to be ready and raring to go for regular season action.  With starters a minor part of the final preseason game, there’s not much chance Jennings will be doing anything particularly strenuous before September 13th.

    A (I’m assuming) mild concussion should be fine, a few symptoms might linger for a week or two. I wouldn’t be surprised if they held him out next week, McCarthy usually only plays the starters for a series in the final preseason game.

    Oh well. Its a part of the game, they probably threw a flag on Arizona for roughing the receiver up anyways seeing as though GB and their players are protected in the NFL.
    They should re-name themselves the GB Black Rhinos, and their slogan should be ” Because we are protected”

    Greg Jennings is a great fantasy league player because he’s consistent. Obviously, Randy Moss is more talented a will give you better overall numbers, but Moss tends to give you inconsistent performances. Jennings is extremely steady. And you don’t have to spend a 1st or 2nd rounder to get him.

    Say a prayer for Jennings — hate to see injuries to anyone — particularly those brain rockers.

    i know vikes-n-favre must be smoking something.
    remember last year when that intentional grounding call was called against rodgers in the end zone. the officials called that play on intent…which thet’re not suppose to do.
    better yet, remember the same game when AP scored in the waning moments and then took off his helmet in the field of play and there was no penalty.
    it’s ok, i know your just building early excuses as the why the Pack will crush the north this year.

    Vikes-N-Favre seems to forget the horrible calls against Detroit that kept them from sweeping his pathetic club last year. The whining and excuses are starting already, and the regular season hasn’t even started yet.

    And the moronic statement of the day goes to you…Congrats.

    Actually, Vikes-N-Favre, there was no penalty.
    Obviously, the Packers’ “protection” failed them. Should Ted Thompson put in a call to the commissioner?

    Vikes-N-Favre WTF is wrong with you man, talking about a bitter little man. I say little because you act like you are 2! Everything you say has no intelligent substance at all, it is dry, bitter and distasteful; none the less it’s entertaining because it’s so stupid sounding. Typical Viking fan, shooting off the mouth before the season, you will be in check; mid-season when your team is throwing picks up for grab and choking like they have in the past.
    Hope you enjoyed last season man, because little handful of gift wrapped games won’t come again this year to help your team win the division by default, you guys almost lost twice to the stinking Lions last season, WTF makes you think your team is so good? I know; like I said you are a Viking fan that explains everything! Ha! LMFAO….

    there was no flag on the play. And he did hang on to the ball. Pretty dominant showing last night by the Packers.

    Hope he’s OK, but I’ll save my prayers for the thousands of people who have lost their jobs in my state during the past couple of years.

    Vikes-N-Favre: You hate the Packers, sure, fine, thats part of football, the fans fighting over teams. But.. like don’t be a complete fool!
    Litterally, think about it. When you trash talk and all, you really should have a valid point, something arguable. Don’t make up stuff to beat down on a team. I mean, that just makes you look foolish and you have nothing to “argue” about your rival team which means maybe you should just not talk at all.
    Basically, the reason why your statement is totally incorrect is one, the league is a fair league in terms of penalties. I don’t notice any sort of biased opinions from refs towards any team.
    1) As mentioned, there was no flag on that play.
    2) As mentioned, Green Bay was penalized more than almost anybody last year.
    3) Later in the game, Brandon Underwood (CB) had a helmet to helmet hit against one of Arizona’s receivers. That was penalized, and could even raise a fine as well from the commisioner. It wasn’t a good hit, and there could be a fine along with it.
    Lastly if your going to make a statement like that, atleast provide an arguement, a sitution that happened that can back up any of the most idioc words that seem to come out of your mouth. If you hate the team fine, but you can’t fight whats not true. And to just say stuff that is not true, is pathetic, truly pathetic.

    @Vikes-N-Favre -
    Making comments like that only put you in the JimmySmith / BobNelson / Rheotric Spewing Fan, and this is not a place you want to be no matter who you root for.
    I can’t honestly believe Green Bay players are any more protected than anyone else.
    Bottom line: Dude got a concussion — that’s no good for anyone.

    Do you only get so many prayers? Is that why you have to ration them? You couldn’t have said one in the time it took you to type up your comment? Or do you only have so many left?

    @DCViking: Thanks for reminding us there are reasonable people on the other side who can look objectively at a play.

    Well, you don’t want to come across to God as a complainer. Then you’d be screwed.

    I wish Jennings well, but I still think Driver is better!
