Jennings nearing return from concussion
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says wide receiver Greg Jennings has made significant steps in his recovery from a concussion and may be able to return to practice Sunday.
Jennings has been out of practice since he sustained a concussion in the Packers' Aug. 3 ''Family Night'' scrimmage at Lambeau Field. McCarthy said Friday that Jennings had progressed through the protocol for returning from head injuries and was close to returning.
The Packers' next practice is Sunday.
McCarthy also says linebacker Desmond Bishop had surgery Friday, after tearing his right hamstring in the Packers' first preseason game. It is not clear if Bishop will miss the season, although McCarthy said previously that his season was in jeopardy.
