Jennings practices in pads Thursday, So’oto back

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 22, 2012 – 11:24 am

WR Greg Jennings took another step toward possibly returning to game action this week when he practiced in pads during the media portion of Thursday’s workout. Thursday is the regular day when the Packers practice in full pads.

Also, LB Vic So’oto, who missed Wednesday’s practice due to illness, returned to practice.

Post-practice update

Both Mike McCarthy and Jennings commented after practice on the progress being made. McCarthy said Jennings took reps in the team (11-on-11) periods both with the regular offense and the scout-team offense.

“Greg’s excited,” McCarthy said. “We’ll see how he feels in the morning. He felt really good today after practicing yesterday, so he’s definitely progressing. The biggest thing was to get him on course to make progress, and right now he’s taken every step, so that’s very encouraging.”

Jennings confessed the decision on whether or not to play is ultimately out of his hands, but he’s giving whatever “input” he can by doing what he’s doing on the field.

“Honestly, I felt better than I thought I was going to feel,” Jennings said. “I guess I was working more rapid-fire yesterday and prior days than I would actually during a game. I felt really good.”

    if one were so inclined, a standard urinal cake can be used as a birthday cake. I recommend topping it off with the natural “frosting” that every man can make himself!

    There always has to be some idiot making juvenile comments in the Packer blog. PLEASE keep these comments to yourselves or find a more appropriate forum for your stupidity. That being said, this is great that Greg is close to returning and hopefully he can be the great player and person he has been for years to come. Its nice to hear something positive on the injury report

    Hopefully Greg will be back in time for the Giants game. We will need all the weapons we can get.

    Perhaps Matthews and Jennings would be in better shape if they cut down on their busy commercial season. Grow some , boys and get back on the playing field instead of being overpaid cheerleaders!!!

    to anyone who thinks the jennings’ and matthews’ injuries are related to commercials, you are a giant idiot

    I don’t have a problem with the commercial’s if they are done during the off season. Making them during the regular season is one more distraction that these HIGHLY paid athletes do not need . They need to keep their heads in the game,and not their wallet’s .

    NIGERlAGUEST cool story bro! You are a fkn idiot! You can copy and paste?? Wow you are clever. If you are going to be an ignorant troll wannabe flaggot, at LEAST be original. You sound like you must be 9 years… pathetic.

    Sweendoggy/Rusty Draper you cant be serious….
    Dude these athletes only have a VERY limited time in the spot light when they are in their prime and when they can generate hype for the team, get the word out that the Packers are back aka make the team MORE money. How can you get down on that??? It’s GOOD for the Packers for our best players to get exposure! Sweendoggy and Rusty Draper.. you guys are ignorant. This is a SPORT, for the purposes of ENTERTAINMENT! Duh! These guys are the BEST the league has to offer and you want to keep them out of the view of the public???? For what? So your superstitious under educated mind can think they’ll play better???? Lmfao! They are the face of the league and more importantly the face of the PACKERS. I want our team out there getting more fans and putting the word that we are one of the best! These guys aren’t cutting practice to do commercials LOL. They do EVERYTHING they can during the week to win, they need a LITTLE time to do their thing. And this isn’t even personal time, this is STILL for the Packers and the NFL. No a better way would be 24/7 practice/film sessions right? Mandatory! No family, no commercials, no leave until the off season! …dumb. You guys just don’t get it.. How can you ever utter those words? Demand that of the players.. crazy

    Jenning is playing now for a long term deal next season which the packers will not give him. Terence Williams will work just fine for me.

    Draft another WR???? Do you see our O-line??? It’s KILLING this team, Rodgers can hardly stay up to throw the ball. Why would you want another WR when we have EXTREME needs elsewhere? We have enough WRs and TEs to catch the ball. That’s not the problem, that’s our strength! Draft where we need desperate help, move up or down to get at LEAST two big men. Why not draft a few more QBs while we are at it then lmfao, another wr…no.

    Wondering how many Packers got hurt in practice this week. Wondering just how bad Beluga’s injuries are? Wondering how bad Mathews injury really is?
    Wondering if Alex Green has injured his knee again and they are keeping it quiet?
    Wondering if Raji can play one or two series without his ankle giving out for the umteenth time this year?
    Wondering if Mike Neal can make in through one whole game without something getting hurt?
    Wondering if Mike Daniels is any good even when he is healthy?
    Wondering if Worthy will ever make a QB sack?
    Wondering why TT and McCart have a propensity for drafting players who were injury prone in college but expected to be ok in the pro’s?

    Opie, WR will be a extreme need when Jennings is not signed to a long term deal. I believe the O-line is better than you think.

  18. By pete on Nov 24, 2012 | Reply

    How long is Jordy and JJ under contract, Finley is suspect from week to week. Not sure WR is a not a concern after this season. Unless Opie you are a believer in Boykins. Opie I believe you need to look at the big picture.

    I just hope when Jennings comes back it will be the Packers best and not his auditions for other teams next year. Life on the field is much sweeter with him on our side.

    Why is everyone on here so crazy? You people don’t sound like fans at all. Enjoy the season for what it is and control what you can control. Don’t try to get involved in decisions that the GM and HC make as if you actually could make a difference. You’re all just a bunch of paranoid schizophrenics that are this way regardless of what you’re paying attention to. In regards to the team, I hope Jennings and Mathews take it easy and come back when they are actually ready. That’s the best decision, IMO. The back-ups have shown promise and the team hasn’t lost, so far, while playing them? Why hurry? They’ll be ready by next week or the week after anyway when the Pack might’ve lost only one game, if any, which I hope they don’t. Get some sense people. It’s a professional sport and tough decisions must be made. Oh, and NO, this is NOT entertainment television. It’s a professional league with professional teams that play professional-level games for people to watch so that they can catch a few hours of every team at least once during the season on which there will be an eventual champion which took a different path than any other during that season. Don’t mix up E! with the NFL. In the spirit of being a fan though, Go Pack Go!!

    *while playing them(.)
    *of which

    Also, it’s ok to be passionate and educated about the game and the business side of it, IMO. That’s how I am. But, I’m not delusional and I don’t focus on football 24/7 thinking about how I would do things my way. Let’s be realistic when we’re being fans. Emotions get you in line with all of the people that don’t succeed in the long-term. Be smart. NFL may “stand” for ” Not For Long”, but LIFE is only that, LIFE. Don’t waste it. (Especially the person posting all that nonsense about flatulence). What a waste of time.

    I want to see jennings back. However i cannot see them re signing him for the contract he will want. and he is worth a big contract, if (BIG IF) he’s healthy. going back the last five to ten years the packers have always had a deep WR core. JJ is good. but i think he is better as a wr3 or wr4. hes having a good year but rogers isn’t putting up the yards he usually does and he has to go somewhere. if jennings comes back this time and they go on a playoff run then i think they owe it to him to “show him the money”. After all hes still fairly young for a wr and to replace him they are gonna have to show someone the money. so why not him! just watch how more dynamic this offense is when he comes back. and watch how all the other recievers benefit from him in the line up too! and just maybe Aaron Rogers will still make it to 4000 yards

    It’s not a matter of whether the Packers WANT to keep Jennings or not. Of course they want to keep him, but they won’t be able to afford to. Rodgers, Matthews and Raji all have pay days coming up and they will get their money before Jennings does. You don’t build strong franchises around a WR, you build them around a QB, a pass rusher and a LT, and TT knows this.
