Although coming off a mild concussion suffered in the second quarter of the Packers' 40-14 triumph over the Detroit Lions, halfback Ahman Green is expected to participate when the Packers return to the practice field Wednesday, GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman said.
Green left the game in the second quarter after sustaining the concussion. He did not immediately join the team coming out of the locker room at halftime and never entered the game in the second half.
Sherman said Green would have been physically able to return, but that he wanted to keep him on the sideline as a precaution.
In first-half action, Green made 12 carries for 50 yards (4.2 yards per carry avg.). He also made three receptions for 20 yards.
Green's backup, rookie Najeh Davenport, also looks as if he will be able to practice this week.
Davenport suffered what first appeared to be a serious ankle injury late in the third quarter. Fortunately, tests on Davenport's ankle were negative and he did not experience significant swelling.
Cletidus Hunt (knee), who was among the inactives against the Lions because of his injury, could also return to the practice field this week, but Sherman suggested it would not be until Thursday.
Meanwhile, Vonnie Holliday appears to be well ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation.
After tearing the meniscus in his right knee against the Miami Dolphins (Nov. 4), Holliday was forced to undergo surgery last week, which was expected to keep him sidelined for 2-5 weeks. However, Sherman said Monday that Holliday was hoping to return to the lineup this week.
