Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) has yet to be cleared to return to action.
Huddle Up: Cobb is eligible to come off IR and play in the Pack's final 3 regular-season games, but being that we're only a week away and haven't much of anything on the WR's progress is a definite fantasy red flag. Make your postseason plans without him.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) is off crutches and he is no longer using a Segway to get around. Cobb spoke with reporters Wednesday, Nov. 20, but he did not offer a timetable for when he will be able to return to practice. Cobb is on the Injured Reserve/designated to return list, and he will be eligible to play Dec. 15. He is eligible to practice two weeks before that. 'I can't make that call right now,' Cobb said. 'Right now, today, I cannot play. I'm doing everything I can. I'm working my butt off in the rehab process, but this is something that needs time. It's getting better. There's still no timeline on when I can come back.'
Huddle Up: In a best-case scenario, Cobb returns in the middle of your fantasy playoffs and you have to trust that he is reinserted into the lineup without missing a beat. That's a lot to ask of Cobb, making him a risky stash in redraft formats.

The Green Bay Packers placed WR Randall Cobb (leg) on the Injured Reserve-Designated to Return list Tuesday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Cobb will automatically miss 6-8 weeks, putting his likely return date in mid-to-early December -- smack dab in the the middle of the fantasy playoffs -- so GMs in non-keeper leagues will have to weigh their roster spots carefully.

Updating previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) is expected to miss six to eight weeks because of a fractured fibula he suffered Week 6.
Huddle Up: Tough break for Randall Cobb, who suffered what sounds like quite the painful injury. Jarrett Boykin will be his replacement in the lineup, and he could have some sneaky value. James Jones gets a big boost as well.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (knee) is scheduled for an MRI Monday, Oct. 14, according to sources. The early indications are that Cobb avoided a major injury to his knee after leaving the Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: This is excellent news after Cobb took a helmet to the knee. Hopefully it's a contusion of some sort rather than anything more serious. He might miss a week or two depending on the severity—keep an eye on his injury status.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (biceps) will not play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: The Packers have opted to play it safe with Cobb and save him for the regular season. The injury could linger, so it's a concern, but Cobb is expected to be ready to go when Green Bay travels to San Francisco in Week 1.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (biceps) was back in pads at practice Wednesday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: This is good to see, though it seems he will be dealing with this biceps injury for a while.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said it is unlikely that WR Randall Cobb (biceps) will be able to play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17, against the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: The Packers are just being cautious with Cobb. McCarthy said he would play if this were a regular season game, so fantasy owners shouldn't be worried. Cobb is good to go for Week 1.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb is practicing through the pain associated with a biceps injury. 'I have some pain,' Cobb said. 'I'm dealing with that. The hardest part for me is that I'm a tough guy. I don't like missing practice. I'm trying to be smart and tough and that's a little bit difficult for me. I understand I have some limitations and have to be smart about it, but it's difficult.'
Huddle Up: Cobb isn't said to be in any danger aggravating the injury, which he sustained this past week, and the Packers surely wouldn't risk it given that fellow wideout Jordy Nelson (knee) is already sidelined for the remainder of the preseason. Cobb may miss a second straight preseason contest this week, but it sounds like he'll be able to get some exhibition work in barring any further issues or setbacks.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (biceps) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 6 with a biceps tendon issue. The injury is not believed to be serious.
Huddle Up: To be truthful, the Packers are counting on the injury not being serious with fellow wideout Jordy Nelson out and in danger of missing the season opener after undergoing knee surgery. In the meantime, give the comparatively healthy James Jones a slight fantasy bump.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he is not worried about WR Randall Cobb dropping passes even though Cobb has dropped at least four passes in competitive drills since training camp began. 'Randall Cobb catches the football very well,' McCarthy said. 'He might drop a ball. I don't know if there's a concern. But it's something we spend a lot of time on. We need to catch the football better....I've never been part of a perimeter group that accepts anything less than being 100 percent, and that's what we're striving for.' Cobb dropped a team-high 10 passes last season.
Huddle Up: Cobb might have as many -- or more -- drops this season, simply from the higher number of targets he's expected to receive. As long as he keeps producing, though, the Packers can live with a few bobbles.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones said he believes he, WR Randall Cobb and WR Jordy Nelson could all post 1,000-yard seasons in 2013. "I've been on record as saying that I believe we have three 1,000-yard receivers in this room. I believe me, Randall and Jordy, if we all stay healthy, we can all reach over 1,000," Jones said.
Huddle Up: The Packers certainly throw enough--and their wide receiving corps is talented enough--to produce three 1,000-yard receivers. But Jermichael Finley will take a bite, and if Green Bay plans to run more with Eddie Lacy that too will take a slice of the pie. Bottom line there's plenty of talent among Green Bay's wideouts, but there's bound to be at least one frustrated fantasy owner each week based on how the catches, yards, and TDs are distributed.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said WR Randall Cobb will focus primarily on offense this season, and his special teams participation will depend on the other players on the team. McCarthy said he hopes other players will be able to fill Cobb's role on special teams.
Huddle Up: If you're banking on Cobb giving you a little extra fantasy production in return yardage, you'll want to re-think that plan. He'll still get the occasional return opportunity, but he'll be less Devin Hester and more DeSean Jackson.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he believes WR Randall Cobb can be a receiver that catches at least 100 catches every season. Wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett said Cobb improved last season but still has things to work on to become more productive.
Huddle Up: With Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson hurting last season, Cobb took full advantage, making the quantum statistical leap from 25 catches for 375 yards and a TD in his rookie season to 80-954-8 last year. Even a slight improvement again this year should indeed put Cobb close to 100 catches, 1,200 yards and 10-14 TDs.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he does not want WR Randall Cobb playing on special teams next season because he will have a bigger role on offense. "Our special teams in a number of areas was about as good as we've played in our time there in Green Bay, and Randall is a big part of that. I hope he's not playing next year. That's really the responsibility of the rest of the skill players in the locker room," McCarthy said.
Huddle Up: If your league awards points for return yardage, Cobb's fantasy value just took a minor hit. However, if not playing special teams frees him up for more work from scrimmage, that hit should be negated by larger receiving (and possibly rushing) numbers.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (illness) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Cobb, who had only 1 catch for 7 yards in the wild-card win over the Vikings, has been battling an ankle issue, but his latest limitations reportedly have been due to a bout with the flu. He should be good to go, though, Saturday night against the Niners.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle, knee) is expected to play in the team's Wild Card game Saturday, Jan. 5. Head coach Mike McCarthy, however, said he plans to work both Cobb and WR Jeremy Ross in the return game during practice this week, and he will not make a final determination until game time.
Huddle Up: Although Aaron Rodgers (365 yards, 4 TDs) and the Packers' offense did just fine without Cobb in the regular-season finale, the emerging wideout, who led the team in receiving with 80 catches, 954 yards and 8 TDs, gives the Pack that added play-making dimension.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle, knee) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is questionable for Week 17.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle, knee) was limited Wednesday in practice and will be limited again in practice Thursday before he is re-evaluated Friday, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. The team will see how Cobb feels Saturday before deciding on his status for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Cobb came out in the third quarter of the Packers' Week 16 romp and finished with 3 catches, 62 yards and a TD. Cobb has been Aaron Rodgers' top target over the second half of the season, but his fantasy owners are going to have keep abreast of practice reports Friday and Saturday.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb suffered an ankle injury in the third quarter of Sunday's Week 16 game and didn't return.
Huddle Up: The game turned into a complete laugher, so who knows if Cobb would've been able to return if really needed. Cobb had 3 catches for 62 yards and a TD before leaving.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 21, and is probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Cobb hasn't scored since Week 11, but any pass catcher who's Aaron Rodgers' top target (99, resulting in 77 catches) is a must-start in any league.
