Greg Jennings Injury Update: Packers' WR Returns To Practice

Packers starting wide receiver Greg Jennings was a limited participant in practice Tuesday afternoon, as Green Bay prepares to host the Seattle Seahawks Monday night. Jennings missed the Packers' Week 2 23-10 win over NFC North rival Chicago with a groin injury suffered against San Francisco in Week 1 on Sept. 9.

Running back James Starks is also expected to return to practice this week. Starks has been dealing with a turf toe injury sustained against San Diego in a preseason game Aug. 9.

Cedric Benson has been carrying the backfield load for Green Bay in Starks' absence. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy had this to say about Starks' return Tuesday afternoon:

Everybody on our football team has a role. It’ll be good to get him back out there, but turf toe is an injury, I don’t think you just jump up out of bed one day and you’re OK. There will be some transition time for him to come back. As far as his role, that’s really determined during the week. Our running back position is probably as competitive as its ever been since I’ve been here. I feel really good about that group, top to bottom.

Without Jennings, Jordy Nelson was Green Bay's leading wide receiver last Thursday, catching six balls for 84 yards. Benson was the second-leading receiver, with 35 yards out of the backfield.
