Greg Jennings has been sidelined since sustaining a concussion at a scrimmage on August 3, and the Packers will not provide a timetable on his return to action.

As reported by Brad Biggs of the National Football Post, head coach Mike McCarthy isn’t sure when the former Western Michigan star will return to the field.

“Well, it’s a long time,” said McCarthy regarding Jenning’s absence. “So obviously based on the extent of his injury, he obviously needs this much time. He did some more testing and he’s still going through the protocol test, but we’re not going to put him back out there until we’re 100 percent sure that he’s clear.”

While we don’t anticipate a Justin Morneau or Jahvid Best like situation regarding Jennings’ concussion, it is certainly concerning for those fantasy owners that drafting Jennings as a number one WR this season.
