Randall Cobb said he planned on playing week 1 and it looks like that’s going to happen.
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Cobb was expected to practice today and that he expected him to be available when the Packers face the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
“Expectations for Randall is that he’ll practice and be ready to play. I’m hopeful everybody will practice today,” McCarthy said.
Cobb sprained his shoulder on the first series of the Packers’ third preseason game. He’s been sidelined by the injury since.
The popups have gotten so bad on this site. Literally took me 5 tries before i could read this without a popup
Use a pop up blocker . . .
It’s the Bears who are banged up at receiver and we aren’t going to find that out from John Fox who has a history of not telling anyone about his players injuries.
Kevin White, who Bears fans proclaimed would be more than a replacement for Brandon Marshall, is out for a long time. Marquess Wilson and Eddie Royal both have minor injuries, and while publicly the Bears are not saying anything about Alshon Jeffrey, bloggers have indicated he may be out for many games.
They don’t need him against the Bears, give him another week , then it’s Seattle at Lambeau, that’s what i’m waiting for. If Cobb gets re-injured against the bears, that would piss me off.
I agree. We should rest him unless we’re struggling in the passing game. Why risk it if Bears is the worst defense we play. If we can’t throw on Bears without Cobb then, we got other problems.
I disagree. We need Cobb. If Nelson were available, I would agree. Without both of them, we are very inexperienced at WR.
Like the idea of limited play time for #18.
Build the new kids’ confidence and Let J Jones get comfortable against a weak secondary….
Looking forward to big win for my first visit to Soldier Field…
