Jennings and Jones Both Seem Ready to Play Sunday

Packers second-year wide out Greg Jennings says that he is good to go and will playJennings Sunday when the Chargers come to town for a 1pm start. Jennings, who has a hamstring issue and is listed as probable, who practiced on Friday and stated he was ready to play. “I’m definitely playing on Sunday,” Jennings said. “It’s been too long, too long. I feel good, I feel fresh. Now I have to stay out there.”

Jennings has yet to play in 2007, and last season pulled in 45 catches in 14 games for 632 yards and three scores. The medical staff kept Jennings out of practice for most of the week to keep the hammy from getting worse, but reports say he was fine running through team drills on Friday. James Jones, another wide out who is on the injury report, is also hoping to be able to give it a go on Sunday. He was on the field Friday as well after feeling some tightness in his hamstring on Thursday.

“It was Coach just being scared and nervous. It wasn’t nothing about my hammy,” Jones said. “That’s why I told Coach I’m never telling him anything again. I was out there in warmups, and I said, `Coach, it’s a little cold out here, I’m going to go over here and stretch, my hammy is a little tight.’ The next thing I know, all the trainers are running up on me, and Coach is like, `Get him out. Get Jones out of practice.’ I’m like, I’m 100 percent, I just need to stretch.’ It was crazy.”
