The two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver will play for the Green Bay Packers against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday after missing seven games because of surgery on an abdominal tear, a source who has spoken with the player told told NFL.com's Albert Breer.

The Packers later confirmed that Jennings is active for the game.

Jennings was listed as probable after he was full-go at practice Wednesday. He'll probably be used carefully, but Jennings doesn't want to be eased back into the lineup.

Randall Cobb has emerged as the most consistent wide receiver in Jennings' absence as both Jordy Nelson and James Jones have disappeared for stretches.
