Packers WR Randall Cobb revealed on Friday that he had surgery about 6 weeks ago to remove a small piece of cartilage from his ankle. That explains why he was spotted in a walking boot in late June. Cobb avoided the PUP list to open camp, though, and told reporters that he "feels great" after experiencing pain in that ankle this spring. "I feel much better than I did before," he said. "I feel like I can move a lot better. I'm not having that throbbing pain that I had, so definitely looking forward to this year." We'll keep an eye on him, but it doesn't sound like the ankle will be an issue. Cobb remains a nice value at his 8th-round ADP.
ESPN's Rob Demovsky considers Geronimo Allison the "best bet" to win the Packers' #3 WR job. Green Bay added 3 WRs in this year's draft -- J'Mon Moore, Equanimeous St. Brown and Marquez Valdes-Scantling -- but Allison holds edges in NFL experience and chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers. The 24-year-old has flashed in spots over the past 2 seasons, including lines of 4-91-1 and 6-122. Green Bay's #3 WR has finished among the top 50 in PPR points in just 3 of 10 seasons since Rodgers took over, so Allison is unlikely to be a standalone value. But an injury to Davante Adams or Randall Cobb would certainly change that.
Packers WR Randall Cobb is out of the walking boot he was spotted in last month, according to WBAY Green Bay. Cobb wouldn't go into detail about his reported ankle injury but told WBAY's Chris Roth that he'll be ready for the start of training camp. "I look great. I feel great," Cobb said. We'll keep an eye on him when Packers camp opens next week, but this looks like a non-issue for now. Cobb remains an excellent value at his WR39 ADP.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Michael Cohen recently spotted Packers WR Randall Cobb with a walking boot on his right foot. Cobb called the boot "temporary," and a team source told Cohen that there's no concern about his availability for the start of the season. This obviously bears monitoring, though, with training camp about a month away. Cobb has been a nice value in early drafts, with an ADP sitting in the 8th round. For now, we'd still be comfortable taking him there.
Update: Cobb's injury is to his ankle and might limit him at the start of training camp, Cohen reports.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) is not listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He put in full practices on Tuesday and Wednesday and shouldn't be limited against the Bears on Thursday night. Cobb is worth getting back into fantasy lineups after opening the season with lines of 9-85 and 6-60.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) put in a full practice on Tuesday. That puts him on track to play against the Bears on Thursday night. Cobb racked up 15 catches on 22 targets over the first 2 weeks and is worth getting back into starting lineups for Week 4. His return knocks WR Geronimo Allison back off the fantasy radar.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Bengals. That elevates Geronimo Allison to the #3 spot on the depth chart. He totaled 17 targets, 10 catches, 178 yards and 2 TDs in the 3 games Cobb missed last year.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Bengals after missing practice all week. HC Mike McCarthy labeled Cobb a game-time decision on Friday, but he’s obviously a long shot. Look for Geronimo Allison to serve as Green Bay’s #3 WR this weekend. He totaled 17 targets, 10 catches, 178 yards and 2 TDs in the 3 games Cobb missed last year.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. His injury was reported as minor, but he's not looking like a great bet to play against the Bengals this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update, but fantasy owners should be making other plans for Week 3.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week that Cobb's injury is "nothing major," but he's clearly not a lock to play against the Bengals on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Packers WR Randall Cobb's shoulder injury is "nothing major" and that he's considered "day-to-day." We'll track his status throughout the week, but it sounds like Cobb has a good shot to play against the Bengals on Sunday.
Packers WR Randall Cobb left in the 2nd half of Sunday night's game against the Falcons with a shoulder injury. The team deemed him questionable to return, though he was standing on the sideline with no helmet on in the middle of the 4th quarter -- with the Packers amid a desperate comeback attempt.
ESPN's Rob Demovsky hears there's "only a small chance" Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) plays against the Falcons on Sunday. Broken ribs generally take about 6 weeks to heal, so it's tough to see Nelson getting cleared just 2 weeks after his injury. "Can't tell you if Jordy's going to practice Wednesday, but he did all the work in the [regeneration] workout today," HC Mike McCarthy said Monday. "So that's a good sign." Perhaps Nelson could return if Green Bay reaches the Super Bowl, but look for Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison to serve as the top 3 WRs in Atlanta. TE Jared Cook should also continue to play a big role in the passing game.
Packers HC Mike McCarthy on Friday ruled out WR Jordy Nelson for this weekend's game against the Cowboys. This was the most likely outcome all along considering Nelson broke 2 ribs in last Sunday's win over the Giants. We'd consider him no better than 50/50 for the NFC Championship if Green Bay gets there. Nelson's absence leaves Davante Adams and Randall Cobb as the Packers' top 2 WRs. Geronimo Allison figures to be next in line for snaps, with Jeff Janis as the #4 WR. TE Jared Cook and RB Ty Montgomery could also pick up extra targets with Nelson out.
Packers WR Jordy Nelson fractured 2 ribs in Sunday's game against the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Will take an incredible effort to play" vs. the Cowboys this weekend, Rapoport adds. HC Mike McCarthy said that Nelson will spend the week rehabbing before potentially practicing on Saturday. At this point, though, we're assuming he won't play in Dallas. That'll leave Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison as Green Bay's top 3 WRs. TE Jared Cook could also pick up extra targets.
The Packers didn't have an update on WR Jordy Nelson's rib injury after Sunday's win over the Giants. But HC Mike McCarthy admitted that he Nelson's availability for the Divisional Round in Dallas is in question. "I obviously have concern for Jordy," McCarthy said. Nelson was in obvious pain after taking a shot to the ribs in the 2nd quarter. He ended up taking a cart back to the locker room and was ruled out at halftime. We should learn more about his status over the next few days. Nelson's absence would leave Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison as Green Bay's top 3 WRs.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) is active for today's game against the Giants. He was limited in practice all week and could very well be limited today. Cobb is a high-risk, moderate-reward fantasy play. His presence does put a dent in WR Geronimo Allison's target projection.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. It sounds like he'll suit up, but he's clearly still not at 100%. Cobb is a risky fantasy play on Wild Card Weekend.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Lions. Geronimo Allison has been filling in as Green Bay’s #3 WR but is just a fantasy flier.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week. Cobb will try to give it a go with the division on the line — ESPNs Rob Demovsky calls him a game-time decision — but he can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups.
