Greg Jennings is officially out tonight against the Bears. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is officially inactive for the Packers game against the Chicago Bears tonight with a groin injury. Jennings status has been up in the air this week, going from 'doubtful' to as good as '50/50' yesterday, but he is now officially out per Adam Schefter. Jennings had removed himself from last weeks loss against the 49ers with the injury and will now miss another game because of it.

Fantasy Analysis: Jennings is a sure WR1 when healthy, but now that he's out you can bump up the status of Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley, as Aaron Rodgers is still likely to throw the ball plenty against the Bears defense. The short week really didn't help out Jennings owners, as he may have possibly been ready to go for a Sunday game, but you'll have to make your adjustments with this news.
