Morning roundup: Not all reinforcements returning

Nov. 28, 2012
 

The Packers are planning for the return of receiver Greg Jennings this week and outside linebacker Clay Matthews, if not this week then at some point soon.

But they won’t get any help for their offensive line and perhaps not for their running game.

As Pete Dougherty wrote in this story -- http://pck.rs/Tlj8Td -- "On Tuesday, according to the NFL’s transaction wire, the Packers retained (tackle Derek) Sherrod on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, which means he’s out for the season. They had until early this week to either activate him to the 53-man roster or put him on reserve/PUP for the rest of the season.

"Also, coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday that (running back Cedric) Benson won’t return to practice this week and it sounded ominous when McCarthy said he expects to have more information on Benson’s injured foot on Wednesday."

In other news:
