Linebacker Clay Matthews will remain sidelined this week with an hamstring injury, but the Green Bay Packers are hoping to get wide receiver Greg Jennings back on the field for Sunday's game against Detroit.
Matthews has missed two games in a row with the lingering injury. And while the All-Pro linebacker has made some strides in his rehab work, he hasn't practiced all week.
"He's making progress," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. "He's just ready to play.
Jennings was categorized as probable on the team's injury report Friday after practicing throughout the week. He has been out seven games after undergoing surgery on a torn abdominal muscle.
