Packers receiver Greg Jennings hasn't completely ruled himself out for Sunday against Houston but the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel said it sounds like "shutdown mode" will continue.Fantasy Spin:Jennings has not tried running at full speed yet. The receiver has maintained that he will not return until he's able to get to open up in his stride and get separation, so it doesn't look like he'll play this week.

That's the frustrating part so that's what we're trying to get back to."
