Greg Jennings possibly will return to practice Sunday

Nearly two weeks after suffering a concussion during the team’s annual Family Night scrimmage, Packers receiver Greg Jennings is getting closer to a return to action.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that Jennings has “advanced through the protocol process,” according to ESPNWisconsin.com.  McCarthy said Jennings may practice on Sunday.

McCarthy also said the team will take a wait-and-see approach regarding Jennings’ availability for the next preseason game, on Thursday against the Bengals, in Cincinnati.

The Packers need their No. 1 receiver to be healthy, and any hit to the head he takes going forward will surely cause Packers fans to hold their breath.  And, if in mixed company at the time, hopefully other bodily functions.

    I know many think it’s too early to crown him, but Jennings looks like 1B to me in GB. No knock on Greg, but Jordy is something special. (I’m a Lions fan)

    Nelson’s done it for one year(out of four). Jennings has been consistently good from day one.

    What a COMPLETELY random fart joke.

    And the Redskins really have played extremely well in the playoffs these few years. Try to be a little more realistic.

    the sad part is…. he will be a target now… 1 head shot from anyone and other teams know he could be out weeks… 15 yards could equal any player (who has had one already) season… I know NFL D’s are pressure based and crossing WR’s are at risk, but until they teach defenders to tackle without helmet to helmet contact, (granted, even I’m not sure it’s possible) many skill players will end up hurt or even worse, with shorter careers…
