FF Locker Room:
Fantasy Football News - Green Bay Packer’s wide receiver, Greg Jennings, has been practicing this week and says he feels great heading into week 13. It’s worth noting that Jennings was close to returning against the Giants (and maybe they could have used him) but the Packers made him take one more week off. Now he’s practicing in full and the during the portion of practice open to the media on Thursday, the report was that he looked good on the field running routes and making cuts.
FFLockerRoom Take - Obviously Aaron Rodgers would love to have Greg Jennings back. He is a difference maker when healthy and is their #1 wide receiver. Jordy Nelson could be considered the co-number one at this point while Randall Cobb is the utility player every team wishes they had. That leaves an odd man out for the time being. That man is probably James Jones, who had a great string of games while Jennings was out.
Don’t cut James Jones loose just yet, as everyone should know, coming back from injury ...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Any remaining hope that the Packers had of offensive tackle Derek Sherrod being able to play this season officially ended Wednesday.
A three-week window in which Sherrod was allowed to practice with the team expired, and Green Bay's 2011 first-round pick had still not recovered from the broken leg he suffered Dec. 18 of last year.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings was a full
participant in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, and it looks like
he’ll be ready to return this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings, while
fellow wide receiver Donald Driver and linebacker Clay Matthews were among the
players that didn’t suit up yesterday.
Jennings has been sidelined for most of the...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson will remain on injured reserve for the rest of this season after undergoing surgery Wednesday.
Benson initially was placed on Green Bay's injured reserve Oct. 10 after a Lisfranc foot injury, but the team designated him for return under the NFL's new rule. Under this rule, Benson had to sit out six weeks of practice...
Not even Randall Cobb could rescue the Packers against the Giants.
I’ve been doing the Packers Stock Report weekly for over two years now. Most of you know how it works.
But just in case, it’s important to know this while you’re reading and agreeing/disagreeing with my selections:
I don’t base the rising/falling/steady selections solely on the most recent game. The most...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Green Bay Packers have heard the comparisons between this season and their run to the Super Bowl title in 2010 in regard to the way the injuries have piled up.
Rodgers, the league's highest-rated quarterback this season, has been through this before. The media reminds him of that, but he calls this a "different team...
Linebacker Clay Matthews will remain sidelined this week with an hamstring injury, but the Green Bay Packers are hoping to get wide receiver Greg Jennings back on the field for Sunday's game against Detroit. Matthews has missed two games in a row with the lingering injury. And while the All-Pro linebacker has made some strides in his rehab work, he hasn't practiced all...
In a surprise move of the 2012 NFL season, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has finally come to terms with his own body and made a sports-media shattering announcement. He has finally come out of the blanket and revealed himself to be a 5 year old boy, which actually explains a whole lot.
"I just felt it was time," he said while eating a Pop Tart at a recent...

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
The current Green Bay Packers are not ready for a Super Bowl run. In fact, the team that was just annihilated by the New York Giants last Sunday night would likely struggle to make the playoffs.
Decimated by injuries, the Packers have been forced to plug inexperienced young players into key roles and shuffle veterans into new positions. And yet, the show...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With three weeks left for fans to vote for the NFL's Pro Bowl starters, five Packers players would currently make the cut.

So in an effort to forget about the Packers dismal showing against the Giants, I instead decided to analyze something completely different, namely the first and only pass that one Graham Harrell has thrown in the National Football League. Some of you might know but Harrell was the only backup quarterback in the NFL who had never thrown a pass in a game (though it has to be said...

The injury-plagued Packers are getting back one of their big guns, Pro Bowl receiver Greg Jennings. Meanwhile, coach Mike McCarthy said he'd "probably have some information" on Wednesday about injured running back Cedric Benson.
Eden Prairie, Minn. -- For Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder and Green Bay strong safety Morgan Burnett, the Florida State-Georgia Tech rivalry will extend beyond Saturday night's Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.
Ponder was an FSU quarterback when he first faced Burnett and the Yellow Jackets in 2008. The two will meet again during the FOX America's Game...
