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.
