WR Greg Jennings took another step toward possibly returning to game action this week when he practiced in pads during the media portion of Thursday’s workout. Thursday is the regular day when the Packers practice in full pads.
Also, LB Vic So’oto, who missed Wednesday’s practice due to illness, returned to practice.
Both Mike McCarthy and Jennings commented after practice on the progress being made. McCarthy said Jennings took reps in the team (11-on-11) periods both with the regular offense and the scout-team offense.
“Greg’s excited,” McCarthy said. “We’ll see how he feels in the morning. He felt really good today after practicing yesterday, so he’s definitely progressing. The biggest thing was to get him on course to make progress, and right now he’s taken every step, so that’s very encouraging.”
Jennings confessed the decision on whether or not to play is ultimately out of his hands, but he’s giving whatever “input” he can by doing what he’s doing on the field.
“Honestly, I felt better than I thought I was going to feel,” Jennings said. “I guess I was working more rapid-fire yesterday and prior days than I would actually during a game. I felt really good.”
