Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is reportedly unlikely to play on Thursday against the Chicago Bears. We break down the fantasy implications.

Editor's Update: Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game with the Chicago Bears. Jennings did not practice again on Wednesday because of a groin injury.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is unlikely to play Thursday against the Chicago Bears because of a groin injury, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Jennings did not practice on Tuesday for the Packers.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings didn't have a great first week for fantasy owners and this could send many scrambling looking for a replacement. Randall Cobb and James Jones are two names owners may want to consider, especially if Jennings is ruled out for Thursday's game. Jennings is a top fantasy receiver but this short turnaround may force the Packers to push on without him in Week 2. Fantasy owners should be ready to use Jennings when he's healthy.
