Greg Jennings rehab from a groin injury isn't progressing as hoped. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has not progressed through rehab of a groin injury as well as head coach Mike McCarthy had hoped, as reported from his latest press conference. Jennings missed last Thursday's win over the Chicago Bears and was thought to be probable for Monday's contest in Seattle, but it appears that there might be a setback on that front. Other Packers that are dealing with injuries are Randall Cobb (limited, hamstring) and Tom Crabtree (did not practice, shoulder.)

Fantasy Analysis: He does have an extra day to rest and possibly be healthy enough to play, but Jennings owners should prepare a backup plan with this news. Despite the Seahawks excellent secondary, this seems like a good matchup for Jermichael Finley and possibly Jordy Nelson against Seattle's young linebackers.
