Greg Jennings’ surgery ‘went very well’

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 1, 2012 – 2:06 pm

WR Greg Jennings had surgery on his abdominal muscle on Thursday, Mike McCarthy confirmed, two days after it was originally scheduled.

Jennings had the procedure done in Philadelphia, where the specialist he visited last week resides. His surgery was postponed two days due to the East Coast storm.

McCarthy said he was told Jennings would be out a minimum of a couple of weeks. Jennings has not played since Week 4 against New Orleans.

“The procedure went very well,” McCarthy said.

    I bet Jennings makes a quick and great recovery. Contract year, he is going to want to show something special the rest of the way and what better way than to be a quick healer.

    Don’t rush back! He should know by now that he does neither himself nor the Packers any good by rushing back from this surgery. He needs to take all the time he needs to be 100%. We don’t need him now – we need him to be making a difference in December and the playoffs!

    I hate to say this but the packers most likely wont resign Jennings! Were going to want to resign C.Matthews, A.Rodgers, and B. Raji to long deals first! Plus Nelson contract is coming up as well

    Jordy is not a free agent until 2015.

    Greg Jennings and “JORDY” Nelson are both big wussies who sit games out because of “soreness.” Maybe they could learn a thing or two from a guy called Adrian Peterson

    Mr. Accurate, going into a bye week trying to make injuries worse on the guys you need for the last part of the season. is dumb….im glad your not a coach…and you not credible for anything you say.

    I had a similar surgery years ago. Not a professional athlete but like to stay in shape. I was on a treadmill within 3 days, the docs said wait a week. I was lifting again in a week, the docs said wait a month. I healed to back to normal in 3 weeks. Football?? That might be a different story… I would guess 5 weeks but it is a surgery that will heal quickly… I didn’t have the advantage of a whole staff of fitness coaches either. He’ll be back by the home stretch of the last 4 game is my guess. Mend well Greg and rely on the strength of our Father for healing fast. Remember Reggie White.

    @ Mr.Accurate it’s not correct to judge from outside, the physical of these athletes is under huge stress for the entire season and Jennings beside being a great player and a nice guy is a highly professional athlete, hopefully he will be in top condition for the playoffs.

    mr accurate. U R a fool!!!!!!!! Why would you want to risk serious injury to Jordy’s hamstring with a bye next week!!!! Jordy Nelson is one of the best and toughest players out there!!!!! You must be a Vikings fan!!!!!

  14. By John Record on Nov 2, 2012 | Reply

    Besides what we need to worry about is Alex Green!!! He is useless and when he is in there the opposing defence can play Cover Two all day!!! Green is way too skinny to bounce of a tackle & it seems he cant make anyone miss either!!!!! What did they see in Green anyway????? Too small and nobody misses a tackle on him

    Actually I’m a Packer fan and Mr.Accurate is right.Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson could learn something from AP about toughness.What did AP have to prove with all the money he has made by coming back by week 1 after tearing his ACL? Just that the game was more important to him then lets say doing commercials!!!! Well at least greg Jennings gets 4-5 weeks to make a few more commercials instead of being on the field with his team.Thats ok because the Pack don’t need him and he is losing his job to Randall Cobb anyways.It’s just sad to see Jordy following in Greg’s footsteps. Packer Dude you are totally wrong about saying we need these players just for the end of the season.This isn’t baseball (162 games) hockey (82) basketball(who cares about this premadonna sport racist sport anyways) where you have the luctury of players can miss a few games or weeks and still be in it. Maybe if we didn’t get screwed by the refs in the bogus Seattle game and maybe if we didn’t choke against the Colts(we would be winning our division if it weren’t for those 2 games) we could afford our players to mend their (minor) injuries but we can’t because we are chasing the 7-1 bears and we can’t afford anymore losses with the way their defense is playing plus we have to go there later in the season.We can’t assume the Pack will beat the Cardinals so lets give our star players rest because they have little girl injuries.The cardinals have a good defense that will get pressure with this sorry azz offense line and on this self entitled chump Aaron Rodgers who is definitely not in Brett Farve’s league.None of these wussies are.They can’t play with pain like he did or want to make every start like he did because its not important to them the money and commercials are. Afraud could never have survived in tne ninties as the Pack’s starting qb definitely not the eighties or early 2000’s.He has hissy fits when things don’t go his way and after getting hit a few times you can see how scared he is. Imagine if this was pre Brady rules he would’nt have lasted one year.If you remember correctly when he filled in for Farve against Dallas hurt his hamstring against New England broke his leg.He is a fragile self centered piece of crap.Lets not compare stats either because todays defenses are horrible plus they are not allowed to hit you either. This led to 3 5000 yard passers last year would have been 4 but the BIG PUSS Rodgers sat out because his butt buddy McCarthy said so.Farve would have knocked his fat azz out if that chump tried to sit him out of a game.They play 16 games a year and get payed for this.They don’t get payed to nurse minor injuries and to rest.The have all offseason to rest and prepare their bodies for this so-called violent sport which Goodell is turning into a flag-football league. 15-1 last year and how well did McCarthy’s plan to rest all of the Pack’s starters serve them including the “Deer in the headlights”Afraud? They got their azz handed to them!!! So go ahead McCarthy take the Cardinals lightly and rest your little girl players for this game and come playoffs they will have plenty of time for rest and commercials!!!

    Why, ever, would a Viking fan ever, EVER, try and razz a Packer fan?
    Minnesota is a JOKE OF A STATE period.
    The only thing the state has in common is both are stupid as they lean left like corrupt Chicago and left California.

    The Vikings have NEVER won a Super Bowl. Ever.
    They have not even made it to one since the 1970’s. That’s pathetic.
    The Timberwolves? LOL.
    The Twinkies? It’s been over 21 years.
    How bout the NHL’s Minnesota Wild? Well they have as many Stanley Cups as the Wisconsin NHL team does.

    The Vikings will never, ever win a Super Bowl. Period. They will move out of Minnesota before they win a ring. You know that.

    I’m sorry, maybe my memory is failing me, but did AP play the week after he had knee surgery? Is Mr. Inaccurate implying Jennings should go out and play in an NFL game after he just had obdominal surgery? Or is he suggesting he somehow has knowledge that the obdominal surgery was unnecessary amd it was just ‘soreness’.

    Also, it would be beyond stupid to have Nelson push his hamstring against teams like Jacksonville and Arizona with a bye week coming up. Hamstrings tear and we don’t need the guy out for the season to prove how tough he is. I’m pretty sure it’s a lot more than ‘soreness’ that is causing him to sit.

    @Tigerwoodsballs; Because its so easy! you guys are such sissy bandwagon fans who will be Vikings fans next year, when the Vikings win the SB! Why am I a Vikings fans. Because our players learn how to play through bruises, we aren’t a Oh, Princessy-O-im-goingtopassalloveryouoigotinterceptedletsgocrynow team! WE ARE A HARDNOSED GROUNDANDPOUND CLUB THAT ACTUALLY HAS SOME INTEGRITY.

    Mr. Accurate, we watched the toughest QB to ever play the game for nearly 2 decades. We know about toughness.
    2 more things… You’ll need a qb to win a SB. Christian sucks pond water. You can’t just ride AP’s back and that defense is only good against sub-par teams. Your qb situation will hold you back.


    yup… vikings don’t star in any commercials.

    As that link won’t work, just go to youtube and type in “Adrian Peterson Commercials”.

    Now, please only return with a reply when you consult with your daddy and have some intelligence to share.

    You’re obviously a child trying, yet failing… just like your team, to play UP to the competition.

    @TrueGrit; that defense is only good against sub-par teams? Are the 49ers subpar? we allowed 13 points against them. Wait, I forgot, what was the outcome of your contest with them? Also, how do I play “up” to the competition if the competition is a bunch of sissies who like pizza hut more than football.

    Adrain Peterson did 1 commercial, and it is about football. A-Rod has done about 50, for Pizza Hut and Allstate.

    p.s. Yeah, you watched the toughest QB sit down in front of Michael Strahan, throw an interception because he was too scared to scramble, a decision that cost us a trip to the SB. Yeah Brett Favre is REAL tough!

    you’re just being ignorant if you don’t think Brett Favre is one of the toughest players to ever play the game.

    Why waste time and argue over some dumb comments made by a vikings fan? That’s why they troll, to get a response from other fans. It’s pathetic some idiot has to go to a Packer website and spew their garbage. I know of no other fans who do this quite like the Viking fans do. I almost feel sorry for these pathetic fools, almost…

    @Pack4Ever; That is just plain not true. My comments are insightful; That is what comments are for, for people sharing their opinions on the articles. You decide to whine about all the true statements I make about your team because you know that I beat you on all your points. Did I ever call you a “pathetic idiot?” NO! I shared my views and you chose to be a homer and say that I am biased. I have every right to share my views on this blog, just as you do.

    MrIgnorant would be a better name for that little boy.
    I guess every pro athlete who does a commercial for something other than football is a wuss, lmao.
    That “wuss” qb took a beating and still finished the game. I guess he should have gone to the sidelines so he wouldn’t have been the 12th man in the huddle. (Do what Ponder does and ride Peterson’s coattails to a loss.) You know, the penalty that took your sorry SB-envy team out of game winning FG range, lol.
    You don’t beat anybody in a football discussion. You, along with Detroit, are the black eyes of this division.
    Have fun with Ponder as he kills your teams hopes of getting in the playoffs. Beating the Niners was your SB. Now it’s back to the vikes we all have come to know. Perrenial Pretenders. Your greatest success is how well your team loses no matter what season, no matter the roster. It’s what you do best. I’ll take the wusses and titles over your “brute men” and lack of anything to be proud of.
    Taking that into consideration is why this is my last response to you.

    @TrueGrit; LOSING to the 49ers was YOUR SB. The penalty did not lose us that game, Favre did by throwing it instead of running it. I am not surprised that that was your last response, as I am destroying you on all of your false claims you make against the Purple People Eaters. And I just did beat somebody in a football discussion: You

    P.S. For your information, the “Black Eye” of the division is tied with you. :)

  35. By True_Grit on Nov 4, 2012 | Reply

    Ok, this is worth a return.

    SF was our SB? lol. ok.

    The penalty? You were in FG range prior to the 12 men in the huddle. The 12 men took you out of FG range which, indoors… Longwell… game over and you’re on to the SB.
    Doesn’t matter though. Favre wore purple and regardless of how, you failed yet again to win a ring. Your specialty.

    i know you’re not that bright but to claim you destroyed only to state that we’re tied?
    last i checked… 6-3>5-4. :D :D :D


    and, wow… Christian Ponder helps destroy you again. Yet you steer clear as can be from discussing that fraud.
    Not even a great back like AP nor that “staunch” D can win games without a little qb help. A team that needed replacement ref help to beat us just throttled you today.

    Been fun, kiddo. Have fun avoiding the cellar with Detroit. Hopefully they beat you and then you can troll their board and brag about being tied. LOLOLOL.

    Later tool. Same ol’ vikes, same ol’ ignorant fans. Some things never change. I’ll bow out for real now and you can claim victory. Call it the SB you never won. Haha.
