Packers' receiver Jennings misses practice with a hip problem

Green Bay Packers' receiver Greg Jennings sat out Thursday's practice with a hip problem.

Coach Mike McCarthy said it was not serious.

Jennings fully practiced on Wednesday, and there's no indication that he won't play on Sunday at Cleveland. Linebacker Brandon Chillar left Thursday's practice early with neck spasms.

Veteran right tackle Mark Tauscher, who rejoined the Packers nine days ago, fully participated in Thursday's practice.

But McCarthy said it would be a stretch to assume that Tauscher would be ready to play against the Browns.

Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin says Tauscher moving pretty well, but he's not sure how confident the nine-year veteran is about playing on his surgically-repaired knee.

Left tackle Chad Clifton sat out Thursday's practice with his injured ankle, but there's still a chance he can play on Sunday. If not, rookie T.J. Lang would get the start.

On the Cleveland side, 11 players missed practice Thursday with flu-like symptoms.

Starting defensive players Shaun Rogers and Kamerion Wimbley returned after being out Wednesday.

Browns' coach Eric Mangini said he expected many of the others to be back today.
