Greg Jennings held out of practice, Week 8 fantasy value remains low

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings didn't practice on Wednesday, a day after reportedly seeing a specialist about his groin injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Editor's Update: Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings did not practice on Wednesday.

Jennings saw a specialist on Tuesday for a second opinion regarding his injured groin, a source tells ESPNWisconsin.com. There has been optimism from the Packers that Jennings would return this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars but that will depend on his ability to practice.

Jennings has missed four games this season because of the injury. In the last two weeks, without Jennings, Aaron Rodgers has thrown nine touchdown passes and for 680 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and James Jones have helped Green Bay keep its passing game in top form without Jennings in the last two games. Their success allows the Packers and Jennings to take their time and make sure the veteran wide receiver is healthy.

Fantasy owners should monitor injury reports this week but should be prepared for Jennings to be out until after the team's bye in Week 10.
