GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers' struggling offense probably will be without running back Vernand Morency and wide receiver Greg Jennings for a second straight game.

Neither practiced today, and coach Mike McCarthy doesn't sound optimistic they'll be available for Sunday's game at the New York Giants.

The Packers are listing Morency and Jennings as questionable on the injury report.

Morency hasn't played in a game since suffering a knee injury on the first day of training camp.

Jennings, the team's number two receiver, has been bothered by a hamstring injury he sustained in practice last week.

The Packers started rookies Brandon Jackson at running back and James Jones at receiver in the season opener last Sunday, when they beat Philadelphia 16-13.

That was despite not scoring a touchdown on offense and gaining only 215 total yards.

McCarthy says Junius Coston will make his first pro start in place of Jason Spitz at right guard.

Spitz aggravated a calf injury in the Packers' last game and didn't practice today.
