Randall Cobb is looking like a long shot to play this Sunday
Randall Cobb, who seemed as if he had a chance to return to action this week once he returned to the practice field, it appears he is not ready to do so just yet. Cobb suffered a fracture in his tibia Oct. 13 and was placed on injured reserve/designated for return.
He has been eligible to return since Week 15, but his recovery is requiring some additional time. As Demovsky notes, Cobb was just cleared to resume running last week, and his biggest hurdle now is reconditioning himself to game shape. He is practicing on a limited basis at this point, and while he would likely be available for the Packers should they enter the postseason, his return for any regular-season play is uncertain at best.
Hopefully the Packers will be able to get to the playoffs so they can use Cobb once again. I would be nice to see Matt Flynn go from the goat to the King.
