Asked if he wishes he’d made this decision earlier, Jennings said it’s pointless to think about.

“You always wish you’d done things differently once it didn’t work,” he said. “But the past is the past. You can’t live in the past, you can’t change the past. Time keeps on ticking. So right now, the decision and the choice that we’re going with is going to get me back to 100 percent.”

Notes: DT B.J. Raji, who has missed the last two games with a bad ankle, was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday. “I thought he looked good,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “He was jumping around there, looked like old self.” … McCarthy said he thinks backup DE Mike Neal, who injured his knee against the Rams, will be able to play in Sunday’s game against Jacksonville. … With so many players banged up — the Packers had 13 players on Thursday’s injury report — McCarthy is cutting practices short this week. “You don’t want to stress your team while getting ready for a game,” he said.
