GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Wide receiver Greg Jennings is back at practice for the Green Bay Packers and appears to be on target to return for the playoffs.

Jennings missed the last three games of the regular season with a torn left medial collateral ligament. Jennings says he might have been able to play in Sunday's finale against Detroit, but he's thankful to have two extra weeks to heal.

Jennings says he was able to run routes against the Packers' defense in practice Wednesday, the first time he has been able to do so since the injury.

The Packers have a bye in the first round of the playoffs and will not issue an injury report until next week.
