Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings was a full participant in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, and it looks like he’ll be ready to return this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings, while fellow wide receiver Donald Driver and linebacker Clay Matthews were among the players that didn’t suit up yesterday. Jennings has been sidelined for most of the season due to injury. His abdominal injury that he sustained early in the year required surgery and has kept him out for the past month-plus. It now appears that Jennings is poised to return against the Vikings, offering the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers another target in an already potent passing game. Driver was sidelined once again due to a thumb injury, and Matthews continues to be hampered by a strained hamstring. The linebacker isn’t expected to play this weekend considering he hasn’t practice yet this week.
