Packers’ Randall Cobb practiced, but looked limited

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

For those Packer fans hoping to see star wide receiver Randall Cobb out there on the field this weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers, I wouldn’t hold your breath.

Yes, Cobb is much closer to returning than he was, let’s say, a few weeks ago. But reports on the situation would suggest that 1) He may not return unless the Packers make the playoffs. And 2) He’s looking limited out there in practice.

ESPN NFL Nation reporter Rob Demovsky reported that while Cobb is practicing, he’s just not looking all that ready:

That’s not the best news for the Packers, because they’ll seemingly need every bit of firepower to win out the next two games and win the NFC North. But let’s remember, Matt Flynn and the offense can get it done without Cobb.

Jarrett Boykin has really stepped up to provide some consistency at the wideout position, and Jordy Nelson has established himself as a true star in the NFL without the assistance of Aaron Rodgers out there.

Would it be much easier for the Packers to make the playoffs with the help of Cobb on the field, and Aaron Rodgers for that matter? Of course?

Can they do it without Cobb though? The proof is in the pudding.
