Draft Scout Jeff Janis News
08/16/16 - WR Jeff Janis underwent surgery on his broken right hand and will be sidelined approximately four to six weeks. Janis told reporters that screws were inserted into his index finger to hold the bones together. Janis suffered the injury during Wednesday's practice and the ailment definitely hinders his opportunity to make an impact for the Packers in 2016. Janis has just four regular-season receptions in two seasons with the Packers but emerged with a stellar playoff game last January. With Green Bay's group of receivers depleted by injuries, Janis caught seven passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns, including a 41-yard "Hail Mary" reception on the final play of regulation to force overtime in a game Green Bay lost 26-20 to the Arizona Cardinals.
08/16/16 - WR Jeff Janis had surgery for what turned out to be a broken right index finger, an injury he sustained in practice Aug. 10. The third-year pro said the timetable for recovery is four to six weeks, leaving his availability for the start of the season in doubt.
08/14/16 - WR Jeff Janis will be sidelined for at least this week, McCarthy said Sunday. Janis, a third-year pro, suffered a broken right hand in practice and didn't play the preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns on Friday night.
08/13/16 - WR Jeff Janis sustained at least one broken bone in his right hand during a Packers practice session on Wednesday, according to a report by ESPN.com.
The third-year wideout, a seventh-round draft choice by the Packers out of Saginaw Valley in 2014, was inactive for Friday night's preseason contest against the Browns. Janis told ESPN that the injury "doesn't help" his chances of making the final roster. He has struggled in camp and failed to build on his stunning postseason in 2015, when he hauled in seven receptions for 145 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-20 loss to Arizona.
06/15/16 - WR Jeff Janis revealed this week that he sustained a bruised back when he fell at the end of his 41-yard touchdown catch on a Hail Mary pass from Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round of the playoffs five months ago. The incredible play in the final seconds of the fourth quarter forced overtime in a game Green Bay lost 26-20 to the host Arizona Cardinals.
The Cardinals ended the game by scoring a touchdown in the opening possession of the extra period, denying Green Bay's offense a chance to have the football one more time. Janis said he hurt the back when he landed on a knee of Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson in the end zone. "If I would have had to go back out there, obviously I would have, (but) I don't know how effective I would have been," Janis said.
