Packers’ Greg Jennings on track for playoffs
Question of the Day
GREEN BAY, Wis. | For Greg Jennings, being able to run again was nice.
What happened Wednesday was a much bigger step in his recovery.
For the first time since injuring his knee last month, Jennings was able to run routes against the Green Bay Packers‘ defense in practice an indication that the Pro Bowl wide receiver is on track to return for the playoffs.
“Running out there, running routes on air [by yourself], anybody can do that,” Jennings said. “When you have a guy leaning on you and trying to jam you and reacting to it, you’re kind of going to instinctively react, instead of strategically going about something. And that was huge for me to know that I can just react and respond to a guy up in my face and be able to still beat the jam and try to kick it into another gear when the ball’s in the air.”
Jennings, right tackle Bryan Bulaga and wide receiver Randall Cobb practiced Wednesday after sitting out Sunday’s season finale against Detroit.
Roethlisberger says he reaggravated ankle injury
PITTSBURGH — Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger says he aggravated his sprained left ankle in 13-9 win at Cleveland last weekend but expects to play in the wild card game at Denver on Sunday.
Roethlisberger says he experienced a “setback” early in the third quarter but isn’t sure when it happened. He completed 23 of 40 passes for 221 yards while taking every snap.
Roethlisberger was limited in practice on Wednesday and walked into the trainer’s room afterward with a noticeable limp. He injured the ankle while beating the Browns on Dec. 8 and missed a 27-0 win over St. Louis on Christmas Eve before returning in the regular season finale.
Center Maurkice Pouncey (left ankle) was also limited in practice while linebacker James Harrison (toe), defensive end Brett Keisel (right groin), running back Mewelde Moore (sprained left knee) and safety Troy Polamalu (right calf) did not practice. All but Moore are expected to play against the Broncos.
