After missing last week's game against the Seahawks, Vikings' wide receiver Greg Jennings says there is no way his Achilles injury will stop him from making a (hopefully) triumphant return to Lambeau Field on Sunday.

“Oh, I’m going,” Jennings told the Star Tribune after Thursday's practice. “Unless the Lord does something different, has a different game plan and he delays this coming, I will be at Lambeau dressed and ready to go.”

Jennings said the locker room will be a little different than he's used to in Green Bay, but "a change of scenery is always good."

Meanwhile, safety Harrison Smith hopes to practice next week and return to the field Dec. 15 when the Vikings host the Eagles, according to the Pioneer Press. Smith hasn't played since suffering a turf toe injury five weeks ago.

The other injury notes of concern included linebacker Erin Henderson (personal matter), center John Sullivan (concussion) and defensive end Brian Robison (knee).
