Packers unsure when Greg Jennings will be able to return

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has missed one preseason game and several practices since suffering a concussion in practice and the Packers still aren’t sure when he’ll be able to return to action.

Jennings got hurt on August 3rd and has not been able to pass the necessary tests that would allow him to resume practicing with the team. He’s been attending meetings while waiting for approval, but that’s all he’s been able to do. Coach Mike McCarthy explained to the media that he’s as unclear on a return date as everybody else.

“I’m shooting in the dark here,” McCarthy said, via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “There’s testing that’s involved, and it’s not going as well as I know Greg would like. Could be a couple days.”

With the Packers scheduled to play again on Thursday, it seems inevitable that Jennings will miss his second straight preseason game. The Packers have enough depth at receiver to survive Jennings’ absence and his concussion likely pushes James Jones even further away from a potential trade before the end of camp as the Packers have received a reminder about the importance of that depth.
