The Green Bay Packers received good news on Monday night, as wide receiver Greg Jennings is active and will play tonight.

Jennings had missed the Packers' Week 2 win over the Chicago Bears with a groin injury. The veteran receiver, who is in the final year of his contract, missed last Thursday's practice before returning on a limited basis towards the end of the week. Jennings tested his groin before tonight's game, was reevaluated and is a go.

As for the Seahawks, they'll be without Doug Baldwin, the team's leading receiver in 2011. Baldwin suffered a shoulder injury during last week's practices and was listed as "questionable" for tonight's game. Through two games this season, Baldwin has just three receptions for 13 yards while playing in nearly 50 percent (48.92 percent) of the Seahawks' offensive snaps.

Here are the full lists of Packers and Seahawks inactives:

Green Bay: RB James Starks, WR Jarrett Boykin, TE Tom Crabtree, LB Jamari Lattimore, LB Terrell Manning, CB Davon House, S Sean Richardson

Seattle: WR Doug Baldwin, G James Carpenter, OC Lemuel Jean-Pierre, DT Jaye Howard, CB Danny Gorrer, CB Byron Maxwell, S Winston Guy
