Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings returned to practice for the first time since undergoing abdominal surgery yesterday, while the team has announced that linebacker Clay Matthews in doubtful to play Sunday against the New York Giants and cornerback Sam Shields has experienced a setback, reports Tyler Dunne and Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel. Cornerback Sam Shields is still "a couple weeks" away from returning from his high ankle sprain. Running back Cedric Benson, the team's injured reserve exemption, may need surgery to repair his Lisfranc injury. And coach Mike McCarthy said outside linebacker Clay Matthews is "doubtful" for Sunday's game at New York. Jennings and fellow wide receiver Donald Driver were limited at practice yesterday. It’s a good first step for Jennings as he attempts to return from an abdominal injury suffered early in the season. He’s been sidelined for most of the year, and it’s not yet clear if he’ll be able to return this weekend against the Giants. Matthews continues to be hampered by a hamstring injury, and the fact that he was ruled out this early in the week likely isn’t a sign that he’s nearing return. Beyond Matthews and Shields, who’s attempting to return from a high ankle sprain, safety Charles Woodson (collarbone) and linebacker Vic So’oto (illness) also didn’t practice yesterday.
