GREEN BAY, Wis. -

Greg Jennings won't play against the Detroit Lions, but he's getting closer to returning to the field..

Jennings had groin surgery November 1, and it was thought he'd be back in the next few weeks.   He's certainly on the right track but only he knows when he'll be on the field again.

"Still really just taking it a day at a time, you know, that's all we can do," said Jennings. " I feel really, really, good --really good.. It's always tough to be on the sidelines and watch but I'm here to support my teammates.

"They've been doing a great job and hopefully, we can keep it rolling," said Jennings. "Yeah, I have a target in my own mind. It's in my mind and I'm going to keep it right there."

The Packers have suffered a number of serious injuries in the past few weeks.
