The Green Bay Packers haven't discussed a contract extension with WR Randall Cobb.
Huddle Up: No reason to rush, but expect the Packers to start working on a deal with Cobb well in advance of him approaching free agency as he's a vital cog in the Green Bay offense.

Green Bay Packers wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett said WR Randall Cobb could see time as an outside receiver in the future. 'I think just going back and talking about a tough-minded individual, mentally as well as physically, I think he can go outside. That's something that we certainly talked about and worked on some during training camp. But obviously, he's a difference-maker in slot. Wherever you put him, he can be a difference. He can continue to be an impact player.'
Huddle Up: It makes sense for Cobb to develop the versatility to play both in the slot and on the outside; it will make him that much harder to find in the Green Bay passing attack--and that much more effective.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) was activated from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list Saturday, Dec. 28, and was added to the injury report with a listing of questionable.
Huddle Up: Cobb is expected to be active on Sunday but will be on a snap count in his first game back. He's not a recommended fantasy play for Week 17.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said WR Randall Cobb (leg) did well during practice Thursday, Dec. 26, and is making good progress. Cobb will be reevaluated Friday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: It sounds as if Cobb was real close to returning in Week 16, and with Rodgers coming back, why not Cobb as well?

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said WR Randall Cobb (leg) will increase his practice participation this week. Cobb is still on the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list.
Huddle Up: Could Cobb and Aaron Rodgers both make triumphant returns in the Week 17 showdown against the Bears? Stay tuned to Packers' practice reports this week.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) is participating in individual drills during practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: This doesn't mean he will play, but it's a positive sign. But would you trust Cobb in his first game back, likely on a snap count?

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said WR Randall Cobb (leg) worked out Monday, Dec. 16, and that he heard Cobb did very well. The team will see how Cobb feels Tuesday, Dec. 17, and will create a plan for him Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like you can trust him this week. It's the championship week—you don't want a guy who is iffy in his first game back from a long layoff!

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) worked out Monday, Dec. 9, but has not been cleared to return to game action.
Huddle Up: It would be tough to trust him right out of the gate, though Dennis Pitta did just fine last week. Don't hold out too much hope that Cobb will make it back in time to affect your fantasy teams, but there's still a chance.

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.
