Packers WR Greg Jennings sidelined again by groin injury

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings @GregJennings didn't play after halftime Sunday because he re-aggravated the groin injury that caused him to miss Week 2 versus Chicago. He was limited when available as he played just 13 snaps in the first half, but rewarded the fantasy owners who started him with a nine-yard touchdown on his only catch of the afternoon.

Fantasy Analysis:

Nothing has been released about Jennings' status for the Packers' next game, which will take place at Indianapolis on Sunday. But I think the team will be cautious with Jennings and perhaps sit him down for Week 5. They need to get him fully healthy, and the Packers know they can beat the Colts without Jennings.
Although he saw only six targets, it's worth noting that James Jones scored two touchdowns with Jennings operating at less than full strength. Randall Cobb @rcobb18 had seven catches on eight targets. Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson saw 13 targets, including eight in the second half. You're obviously starting Nelson next week. It's hard to know when either Jones or Cobb are going to have big games, but both of them should be productive if Jennings is absent on Sunday.
