Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was placed on injured reserve in October and is eligible to play in next week’s game. Cobb could have begun practicing but hasn’t yet.
“I thought I was going to be cleared to run two weeks ago, and I still haven’t been,” Cobb said Friday,via ESPN Milwaukee.
“I got to see Randall a little bit, some of his workout today,” coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. “Obviously, he’s not ready this week, and Tuesday will be a big day because that’s kind of the week we’ve always looked at for his availability. So we’ll see how that sorts out on Tuesday.”
When he was injured Cobb was the team’s leading receiver with 29 receptions before fracturing his right leg. Getting him back would add a playmaker to the line up to help out quarterback Matt Flynn while he fills in for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
“I feel pretty good, but until I’m able to run and able to test out, I won’t know exactly where I’m at. It’s kind of hard to tell where I’m at without running,” Cobb said. “I talked to the doctor this morning, and after the scan that I had right before Thanksgiving, from what that scan showed, he still wasn’t ready to let me run yet.
“So until he gives the OK, I just continue to do the things I’ve been told I can do,” Cobb said.
