Greg Jennings Injury: Packers WR Returns To Practice

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings was back at practice with the first-team offense Sunday after missing time with a concussion, as Ty Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Jennings has sat out the past two-plus weeks with the head injury, but he's shown steady improvement.

According to Dunne, the Packers expect to have Jennings back in the lineup for their third preseason game. Green Bay has been cautious with its top pass-catcher given the nature of the injury, but it doesn't seem he'll be impacted during the regular season.

Jennings, 28, suffered the concussion during a scrimmage on Aug. 3, and he didn't return to the field until Sunday morning. After catching 67 passes for 949 yards and nine touchdowns in 13 games during a relative down year in 2011, he should be able to pass the 1,000-yard plateau again in 2012 if healthy.

Greg Jennings Likely To Miss Preseason Week 2

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is still dealing with the lingering effects of his concussion, and will almost certainly miss the Packers' second preseason game of the year Thursday night against the Browns. Jennings suffered the concussion in a scrimmage on Aug. 3, and hasn't practiced or played since that date.

In 2011, Jennings caught 67 balls for 949 yards and nine touchdowns. Candidates to replace him in the starting lineup include veteran James Jones and Randall Cobb, who has electrified onlookers in training camp so far this year. Across the field will be Jordy Nelson, who may have replaced Jennings as Green Bay's top receiver.

Jennings has been relatively healthy throughout his career, never missing more than three games in any season and playing a full 16 games in three of his six seasons in the NFL. In 2011, he missed the final three games of the season with a knee sprain before returning for Green Bay's playoff loss to the New York Giants.
