Greg Jennings, Jermichael Finley return to practice

On Saturday, it appeared the wait for Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings‘ return from a concussion was coming to an end.

As the Packers hoped, that wait ended Sunday. Tom Silverstein and Ty Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel report that Jennings was on the field when the Packers started practicing, the first time that he’s been able to practice since suffering a concussion two weeks ago. Coach Mike McCarthy said that Jennings had satisfied all the steps of the concussion protocol on Saturday, a big hint that he’d be on the field Sunday.

Tight end Jermichael Finley also returned to practice on Sunday. Finley injured his quadriceps earlier this week, forcing him to miss the Thursday night game against the Browns. Finley participated in warmups for that game before the Packers decided to give him a little more rest.

The Packers haven’t said whether either player will play during the team’s third preseason game on Thursday against the Bengals. Both should be fine for the start of the season, adding to the potency of a Packers offense that should be among the league’s best again this season.

    I’m not worried about the offense.

    Getting these two back will make them hard to stop again but that defense has to be able to stop or at least slow down the other team.

    Just have to hope that since it’s the preseason the defensive calls have been plain and won’t ramp things up until the start of the season.

    I have to hope….

    Try to keep him healthy cause Rodgers will need him right from the start of the season. Greenbay is weak as melted cheese right now an everybody know it… Even packers fans aint that blind
