Giants vs. Packers Divisional Playoff: Greg Jennings Back for Green Bay
As expected, both the Giants and Packers will have almost all of their key players active for today's divisional playoff game.
The Giants will be without linebacker Mark Herzlich; his ankle will not allow him to go. But with Michael Boley back from his injury for a few weeks now, Herzlich's role would have been strictly as a backup.
Of more significance is the return of three starters for the Packers' offense. Left tackle Chad Clifton started in Week 17 against the Lions after missing almost half the season with a hamstring injury but the Packers will also have right tackle Bryan Bulaga back for the first time since he sprained his knee in Green Bay's loss at Kansas City on Dec. 18.
The Packer receiving corps will also be at full strength for the first time since beating the Oakland Raiders on Dec, 11. Greg Jennings missed the final three regular-season games with a knee injury, but the Pro Bowler participated fully in practice this week and is ready to go.
The return of Jennings is significant; he is Green Bay's best route-runner among the wide receivers and because teams generally roll extra coverage to Jennings, it creates opportunities for the other talented receivers such as Jordy Nelson, Donald Driver and James Jones.
