It was good news coming out of Green Bay today as Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings was back at practice.
After injuring his knee nearly a month ago against the Oakland Raiders, Jennings has received around-the-clock treatment from trainers as he healed and rested.
And while the Packers won a Super Bowl last year without Jermichael Finley, the team was certainly hoping they didn’t have to try to do so without Jennings. If you remember, it was Jennings who stepped to the forefront when Finley went down last year, helping the Packers cruise through the playoffs and then capture their fourth Super Bowl title.
Needless to say, Packers coaches, players and fans breathed a deep sigh of relief today when they heard Jennings would be back on the field running routes against live defenders. We can hardly wait to see him back on the field when the Packers take the field against either the Lions, Giants or Falcons.
The following story that appeared on JSonline.com today is a fine look at the man and what he means to this team.
