Pack's Jennings set to return from abdominal tear

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Packers won't get all of their injured starters back this week, though they'll have one: Two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said during a press conference Tuesday that the question with Jennings, who has missed the last seven games, is how many snaps he'll be able to handle against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Jennings underwent surgery Nov. 1 to repair a lower abdominal tear that has bothered him since he first injured it near the end of the Sept. 9 season opener against San Francisco. McCarthy said he expects Jennings to be a full participant in practice Wednesday.

Jennings practiced all three days last week and proclaimed himself "ready" last Friday, but he was inactive for the team's 38-10 loss at the New York Giants on Sunday night.
