Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has returned to practice for the first time since having surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle.

Jennings caught some balls and ran some routes at full speed in Wednesday's practice, trying to see how much he can do. He says he felt "great," and had "no pain whatsoever." But his endurance is "horrible," and Jennings says he'll need to work on that before he'll be ready to play.

The Packers' top receiver says he has no timetable for returning, but isn't ruling himself out for Sunday night's game against the New York Giants.

Jennings has played only three games this season because of the injury, and has missed the last six straight. He had surgery Nov. 1.
