Reinforcements appear to be on the way for the resurgent Green Bay Packers, with three key peformers expected back from injury for this week’s game against San Francisco.

Outside linebacker Aaron Kampman, tight end Jermichael Finley and inside linebacker Brandon Chillar all figure to play against the 49ers, coach Mike McCarthy said Monday.

Green Bay (5-4) managed to stun Dallas 17-7 on Sunday at Lambeau Field without that trio, transforming themselves into a playoff contender once more.

Defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins and wide receiver Greg Jennings have nagging injuries that could cost them practice time, McCarthy said. Fullback John Kuhn broke his hand and his availability is unclear.

The 49ers (4-5) snapped a four-game slide with a 10-6 victory over Chicago this past Thursday, and will have had 10 days to prepare for the visit to Lambeau Field.

Green Bay then hits the road on short rest for a Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit (1-8).
