Jennings inactive, despite being listed as probable

A day after we wondered aloud whether the Broncos would dare to not play Peyton Manning despite listing him as probable with an ankle injury, the Vikings have dared to deactivate receiver Greg Jennings despite listing him as probable with an Achilles injury.

Technically, the “probable” designation means that the player is a virtual certainty to be available for normal duty.  Which means that Jennings should be playing at Seattle.

Several years ago, the NFL made it clear to teams that, if/when a player listed as probable doesn’t play, at a minimum an explanation must be provided.

In this case, it’s possible that the Vikings decided to give Cordarrelle Patterson the start over Jennings.  Still, Jennings would be part of the rotation.

Either way, it’ll be interesting to know how Jennings went from virtual certainty to out.

UPDATE 3:43 p.m. ET:  A Vikings spokesman tells PFT that the issue will be addressed by coach Leslie Frazier after the game.

    Sounds like Jennings said something to somebody

    He probably just got tired of running routes all day for a jello-armed QB who needs to be in field goal range to throw a Hail Mary.

    Frazier is probably tired of his phone being blown up by his sister whining about Greg not getting the ball enough.

    Wonder if he defied his coaches wishes again (after he ripped Rodgers, Frazier told him to knock it off. He then claimed he was brainwashed by the Packers. So much for being a “team” player)

    Probably payback for hopping around on the sidelines while his coach kept calling timeouts late while clinging to the lead.

    Greg must have forgotten to put on his Old Spice Champion this morning. Cue the whistle…

    Karma is a son of a gun

    This guy gets paid enough to at least pretend he’s happy. I’m kind of sick of Jennings already. That said, hopefully this is injury related and not more nonsense (not that I’d hope for injury, but it would be easier to swallow than more nonsense).

    Something happened with Greg Jennings, he’s deactivated. Great… At least we have the criminal playing. Curtain call for Patterson, Right. and Webb.

    Karma. Jennings just has had no heart since going to Minnesota. And the only reason Jerome Simpson is being allowed to play is because Goodell won’t discipline players from his favorite team.

    Well, there’s 25 yards the Queens wont get.
