Greg Jennings might not be on the field right now, but that doesn’t mean the Green Bay Packers’ wide receiver has lost his sense of humor off of it.
The Packers' wide receiver, who's still out with a groin injury, pulled a fast one on teammate James Jones on Monday when he had a local automotive service remove the tires from Jones’ Chevy Avalanche and place it on blocks during a prank for the birthday of Jones’ son, J.J.
The truck was filled with silly string and had puffy paint covering his windows. The front window was completely whited out with the words “Go Pack Go,” written on it while the co-passenger’s seat read: “Happy birthday Lil J.J.”
According to Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson, it's been an ongoing prank between the two receivers, including last month when Jones was in on filling Jennings' car with packing peanuts for his 29th birthday.
On Monday came the retribution.
“They’ve been doing that stuff for years, so you expect it,” Nelson said with a smile. “I’m surprised he drove to work today.”
Many Packers players took to Twitter following the prank to voice their laughter, including Jennings himself:
"This what I do (t)o people who try to prank me. Got Cha James Jones89"
In the midst of a long NFL season, sometimes a bit of humor can go a long way.
