Packers' Jenkins questionable vs. Eagles; Zombo, Bigby out

Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins, who was limited in practice Friday with a calf injury, is questionable for Sunday's wild-card playoff showdown in Philadelphia against the Eagles, coach Mike McCarthy told reporters.

Jenkins, who had seven sacks during the regular season, missed the previous four games because of the injury.

McCarthy said Jenkins had two good days of practice, then mainly rested during Friday's session.

"Hopeful he'll go," McCarthy said. "If he's ready, he'll go."

McCarthy said linebacker Frank Zombo (knee) and safety Atari Bigby (groin) have been ruled out of the game. Zombo will have missed four games, Bigby two.

"(Frank's) not quite ready," McCarthy said. "If I was to project out on Frank, I'd say next week."

McCarthy praised his team's preparation for the Eagles, adding that the week has "seemed long" because of the players' anticipation.

"Practice has been excellent this week," McCarthy said. "The padded work yesterday was very spirited."

Offensive tackle Chad Clifton (knees), cornerback Charles Woodson (toe) and linebacker Clay Matthews (shin) were limited in practice Friday and listed as probable, along with safety Nick Collins (ribs) and defensive end Ryan Pickett (ankle), who fully practiced.

McCarthy also announced that the players selected quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Greg Jennings as offensive captain for the playoffs. Charles Woodson and A.J. Hawk will represent the defense, and Jarrett Bush and Mason Crosby were selected as special teams captains.
