Jennings on his knee: It was almost shocking

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings said the torn MCL he suffered against† Oakland that caused him to miss the final three regular season games had no pain when he tested it during Wednesday's practice. Jennings could have played if needed against the Lions, but the Packers chose to keep him out for an extra two weeks of rest. He was listed as a full participant on the injury list. Jennings scaled back the rehab over the weekend, but was already feeling pretty good. Last week, he said the final hurdle was the mental one - gaining a trust that he could run, jump, cut and maneuver even with a defender pushing and pulling. "Itís there. Itís there," Jennings said Wednesday. "Today, it was almost shocking. I kept trying to feel something and I just didnít feel anything. "Sometimes, periodically, I would look at one of the guys and ask, ĎHow do I look?í Good. In James (Jones) words Ė respect. Didnít really quite know what that meant at the time, but he meant you look good." "I knew that I wasnít going to favor it. But mentally just knowing that that pain might be there, I didnít know how I would deal with that. But, today, I felt nothing. I mean, mentally, it wasnít even there. Itís kind of like awing. The people that know me, honestly, itís nothing but God."
