Packers coach Mike McCarthy says he's not sure when receiver Greg Jennings can get back on the practice field. We break down the fantasy implications:

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says he's not sure when receiver Greg Jennings can get back on the practice field. Jennings suffered a concussion earlier this month during a scrimmage and didn't play in the team's preseason opener against San Diego. McCarthy said after Sunday's practice that it could be a couple more days, but that he was just "shooting in the dark." It's very unlikely that Jennings will play on Thursday against Cleveland.

Analysis: This is starting to sound like a bigger concern for the Packers, as McCarthy also said that tests were not going as well as Jennings would like. Jennings is a top fantasy receiver, but a concussion is not something a team is going to take lightly. At this point there is no reason to avoid Jennings but it is something to follow as the regular season gets closer. He may turn into more of a risk pick than expected.
