Greg Jennings WR MIN 26 Days

Jennings (ribs) had five catches on six targets for 45 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Panthers.

The Vikings led 14-3 after the first quarter and 28-6 at halftime, though they scored 14 points on blocked punts returned for touchdowns, which limited the offensive plays overall. Rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was much more accurate than in previous outings, completing 15 of his 21 passes, including Jennings' 17-yard touchdown in the second quarter to put them up by 22. Up next is a Week 14 matchup against a Jets defense that is much better against the run than the pass this season, allowing a league-worst 27 passing touchdowns.

Jennings (ribs) is listed as active Sunday against the Panthers.

The rise of Charles Johnson over the past two games (nine receptions for 139 yards and one touchdown) coincided with the rib injury suffered by Jennings in Week 11, but in a return to his normal workload last Sunday, the veteran wideout reeled in four balls (on six targets) for 38 yards and a touchdown. Jennings could strike gold again versus a Carolina defense that has been generous in 2014, surrendering 12.6 YPC and 15 WR scores across 11 outings.

Jennings (ribs) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Jennings practiced fully all week, so his health isn't in question, but his role and effectiveness both might be. Charles Johnson is emerging at wideout for the Vikings, and Jennings has just five catches for 42 yards and a touchdown on eight targets over the last two weeks. With that said, his average of 7.6 yards per target on the year is respectable given the unstable quarterback play he's dealt with.

Jennings (ribs) practiced in full Thursday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Unhindered in drills this week, Jennings is on track to uphold his typical role in the Vikings' passing game. Although he's reeled in 14 of 24 balls over the last four games, he's reached the end zone on two occasions to salvage modest outings.

Jennings (ribs) had four catches on six targets for 38 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Packers.

Jennings' touchdown was his second in the last four games, though it was his third of the entire season. Charles Johnson appears to have the best chemistry with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater right now, and while Jennings is a consistent producer, he remains touchdown-dependent to make much of an impact.

Jennings (rib) is listed as active Sunday versus the Packers, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports.

Thus substantiates a report earlier Sunday from Breer. Because the Vikings could be in catch-up mode fairly early in the contest, Jennings could reach the end zone against a Packers defense that has given up eight touchdowns to wideouts over the past six games.

Jennings (rib) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay, ESPN reports.

Jennings was able to fully practice Friday, so he should be able to play. However, check his status before kickoff to be sure.

Jennings (rib) returned to practice Friday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

We'll wait and see how he's listed when the Vikings release their official injury report, but Jennings seems likely to play Sunday against his former team.

Jennings (ribs) didn't partake in practice Wednesday, the Vikings' official site reports.

Jennings sustained a rib injury in Sunday's game in Chicago, but the ailment didn't stop him from returning to action. However, he mustered his worst performance of the season -- one catch (on two targets) for four yards -- which was likely precipitated by the injury. As a result, monitor his activity level in drills throughout the week to learn his potential availability Sunday versus the Packers.
