Wednesday will be a big day for Greg Jennings

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings missed practice again on Tuesday because of the groin injury that has clouded his status for Thursday night’s game against the Bears.

After practice, coach Mike McCarthy sounded some hopeful notes about Jennings’ progress toward being healthy enough to play but they came with the caveat that what he’s able to do on Wednesday will determine what he’s going to do against Chicago.

“His workout and his rehab went pretty good. ¬†Tomorrow will be the big day,” McCarthy said, via Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “We’re dealing with the groin, how he responds to it will be an endurance issue.”

Jennings had five catches in the Packers’ opening loss to the 49ers before leaving late with the injury. Based on the reports provided by McCarthy, the biggest stumbling block for Jennings is the schedule because it sounds like he’d have a much better chance to be well enough to get on the field if the game were scheduled for Sunday.

If he isn’t able to play, James Jones would likely step up into his starting role opposite Jordy Nelson with Randall Cobb likely seeing a bit more of the field in his multi-faceted role in Green Bay’s offense.

    I am ready to see Jennings go. He hasn’t played like he used to since winning the superbowl. Adios try the Packers again when you regain some competitive fire.

    Also of importance, stop running between the tackles on first down, over and over. It was not working, especially since our Oline who are groomed for pass protection couldn’t open any holes. Let Rogers call his own plays.

    Surprised that Jennings is the only one with a groin injury considering the huge kick of the groin the 49ers dealt the Packers.

    we don’t have the line for deep ball based offense. We need to go with the short passing game. Worried this is at best a 9-7 team…

    It sounds like even if he does play, he won’t be 100%. I would not be at all surprised to see the Bears pull off an upset on Thursday night.

    This will not be an upset… This is a good old fashion Chicago style take over. With revenge wrote all over it.
    Cutler wants to show why hes paid more than Rodgers. @packers fans… The Bears are sick of greenbay an the cheese too
