The Minnesota Vikings are traveling to Lambeau Field on Sunday to take on the Green Bay Packers. The game will be the first time that wide receiver Greg Jennings returns to the Packers since leaving the team in the offseason.

Jennings’ status for the game was in doubt thanks to an Achilles injury, but now it looks like he will be able to suit up and take the field.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on NFL GameDay Morning, Jennings will play.

The Vikings had listed Jennings as questionable entering the game, so they have to be happy to know that one of their top offensive weapons will be able to go.

Running back Adrian Peterson is also listed as questionable for the game, but he has told reporters that he will be okay and able to suit up. With Jennings and Peterson able to play on Sunday, the team will have a good chance at pulling the upset over the Scott Tolzien led Green Bay Packers.
