Greg Jennings WR MIN 9 Months

Appearing on GameDay Morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Greg Jennings (Achilles') will play Sunday against the Packers.

Jennings was a surprise inactive after being listed as probable last week. He missed practice Wednesday before returning Thursday and Friday. The Vikings list Jennings as questionable for Week 12. Jennings has already said he "definitely" expects to play against his former teammates. He's a WR4 at best.

Greg Jennings (Achilles, questionable) said he "definitely" expects to play this week.

Jennings is going to be active, but shouldn't be expected to be 100 percent against his former team. He's just a low-end WR4 for Week 12.

Greg Jennings (Achilles') is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Jennings is tentatively expected to play, but was inactive with the same injury last week despite being listed as probable. So he's obviously hard to trust. We'd simply write off Jennings as a fantasy option against Green Bay.

Greg Jennings (Achilles) returned to Vikings practice Thursday.

He'll almost certainly be listed as "limited." Most signs point toward Jennings returning against the Packers, but he'll likely be questionable instead of probable on Friday's injury report. Jennings shouldn't be expected to be 100 percent against his former team just seven days after his surprise inactive. He's a low-end WR4 for Week 12.

Greg Jennings (Achilles) is not practicing Wednesday.

Jennings was a surprise inactive in Week 11 and is still dealing with soreness in his Achilles injury. He's hoping to return to practice Thursday and should return after missing just one game.

Greg Jennings (Achilles) expects to play in the Week 12 game at Green Bay.

Jennings said his heel was more sore than he expected when he woke up, so he sat the loss at Seattle out. That allowed Cordarrelle Patterson to rack up a season-high nine targets -- although the explosive rookie only managed a 3/28/0 line. Expect Jennings and Simpson to be the primary receivers in two-wide sets next week.

Greg Jennings (Achilles) was limited in Vikings practice Friday.

Coach Leslie Frazier did confirm he expects Jennings to play against Seattle. Jennings is not a recommended fantasy option in the brutal matchup.

Greg Jennings was added to the Vikings' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited session with an Achilles' issue.

Mid-week downgrades are never good news, but especially when they're Achilles' tendon related. Jennings hasn't spent much time on the injury report this season, but it's possible it's just a minor issue the Vikings are using as a means of limiting his reps. A WR3/4 for Week 11, Jennings' status will be updated on Friday.

Greg Jennings caught three passes for 18 yards in Minnesota's Week 10 win over the Redskins.

Jennings did nothing of note until the NFL Network cameras caught him going crazy on the sideline as coach Leslie Frazier inexplicably called two timeouts during the Redskins' desperation final drive. Jennings now has just 34 catches for 410 yards through nine games, and could be playing with yet another new quarterback in Week 11 after Christian Ponder dislocated his left (non-throwing) shoulder this evening. Jennings is a mid-range WR4.

Greg Jennings caught six passes for 56 yards in Week 9 at Dallas.

Jennings led the team in both categories and saw a team-high nine targets. It was a typical day at the office for him, catching a lot of short passes for minimal gains. Jennings was the target on Christian Ponder's lone interception, a badly under-thrown pass. He remains nothing more than a low-end WR3. After eight games, Jennings is on pace for 784 yards and four touchdowns on 62 catches.
