The Green Bay Packers currently sit in second place of the NFC North, a game behind the Chicago Bears (assuming the Bears don’t have a tie in Week 16). Needless to say, their playoff hopes are on somewhat cloudy, which may not be a good prognosis for wide receiver Randall Cobb who according to Fox Sports Wisconsin may not return this season unless the Packers make the postseason.
Cobb, who was eligible to return from injured reserve last week, confirmed that he has not been medically cleared. It’s possible that he’ll only play in another game this season if the Packers make the playoffs.
The young Packers receiver has missed nine game after suffering a nasty injury earlier this season, a number that will likely grow to ten as it’s extremely unlikely he’ll be active against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Given Cobb just recently received clearance to run, the timetable makes sense despite his frustration he wasn’t activated for the Packers Week 15 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
