Randall Cobb pulled in seven-of-eight targets for 62 yards Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.
Cobb was the hero in last week’s win over the Giants but took on more of a supporting role Sunday as the Packers survived a nail-biter in Dallas. He was still a big part of the Packers’ passing game but was out-targeted by both Jared Cook and Davante Adams. Cobb has a favorable matchup against the Falcons’ secondary next week but could take a backseat to Jordy Nelson, who is tentatively expected to return after missing Sunday’s game with broken ribs.

Randall Cobb (ankle) is practicing fully for the Divisional Round.

Cobb looked fully healthy after blowing up for three touchdowns in the Packers' Wild Card win. He's in line for increased targets with Jordy Nelson's status in doubt.
Jan 11 - 6:45 PM

Randall Cobb caught 5-of-7 targets for 116 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers' Wild Card win over the Giants.

As Giants slot CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) bowed out early, Aaron Rodgers attacked New York with his slot receiver. Cobb got the start over Geronimo Allison and came through with one of the most incredible plays of the season, securing a 42-yard Hail Mary on the final play of the first half. Cobb’s second score all but iced the game in the third quarter, dusting fill-in slot CB Trevin Wade off the line of scrimmage for a 30-yard strike. Finally, Cobb put the Giants out of their misery with a 16-yard touchdown on a laser from Rodgers in the fourth frame. Cobb's monster game came almost out of thin air. His role lessened in the second half of the season due to ankle and hamstring injuries, and Cobb didn't play in Week 16 or 17. He went catch-less in his last appearance (Week 15).
Jan 8 - 8:22 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) is active for the Packers' Wild Card game against the Giants.

Cobb missed the final two games of the season, but will be out there in the slot. He's not an overly appealing DFS option. Geronimo Allison is the No. 4 receiver. Inactive for the Packers are QB Joe Callahan, WR Trevor Davis, CB Quinten Rollins, RB James Starks, OT Kyle Murphy, LB Jayrone Elliott and DT Christian Ringo.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Cobb will have a very tough matchup against Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who has a 90.9 Pro Football Focus grade this season. It won’t get much easier for Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams, who will have to deal with Janoris Jenkins (88.1) and Eli Apple (71.1). The Giants biggest weakness may be against tight ends, Football Outsiders ranks them 26th in DVOA against the position. If New York's corners can shut down the receivers, Aaron Rodgers may need to rely on Jared Cook quite a bit today. Cook averaged seven targets and 59.3 yards across his last three games.
Jan 8 - 3:20 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Giants.

Cobb was limited at practice this week and seems to be trending in the right direction. If healthy, Cobb will occupy his usual role as Green Bay's slot receiver. Geronimo Allison has done a nice job in his place, corralling eight catches for 157 yards over the last two weeks.
Jan 6 - 3:24 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Randall Cobb (ankle) "had a good day's work" Wednesday and will practice again on Thursday.

It felt like the Packers were trying to see where Cobb was on Wednesday, so the fact McCarthy came away pleased is a good sign for his availability this weekend. Geronimo Allison has been shockingly effective the last two weeks, but the Packers would certainly love to have back a healthy Cobb.
Jan 5 - 11:53 AM

Randall Cobb (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

It sounds like it's more of a day to see where Cobb is at with his ankle. He's missed the past two games, but Green Bay is "hopeful" Cobb will play Sunday against the Giants. Geronimo Allison has filled in well in Cobb's absence.

The Packers are "hopeful" about Randall Cobb's (ankle) status for the Wild Card round.

Cobb sat out the final two games of the regular season. Truth be told, Cobb has not been missed much as Geronimo Allison steps up in his absence, but the Pack will surely want all hands on deck against the Giants.
Jan 2 - 4:01 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) is inactive for Week 17 against the Lions.

Cobb was on the doubtful side after not practicing all week, but came down to a game-time decision. He wouldn't have played more than a few snaps if active. Jordy Nelson will see time in the slot with Cobb out. The rest of the Packers inactives are QB Joe Callahan, RB James Starks, CB Josh Hawkins, OT Kyle Murphy, OL JC Tretter, ND LB Jayrone Elliott.
Jan 1 - 7:02 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Packers aren't counting on Randall Cobb (ankle) for much even if he play against the Lions in Week 17.

Cobb is considered a game-time decision but is much closer to doubtful than probable after missing practice all week. Rapsheet said his ankle "needs another week," but in a must-win game against Detroit, he might tough it out for a few snaps. Jordy Nelson could see more action in the slot if Cobb is unable to play.
Jan 1 - 9:16 AM

Randall Cobb (ankle) is questionable for Week 17 against the Lions.

Cobb didn't practice all week but is hoping to play at least some in Sunday night's must-win game against the Lions. He'll be a game-time decision. Jordy Nelson could see more work in the slot if Cobb can't go.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 04:12:00 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) has yet to rule himself out for Week 17.

Cobb sat out Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but he said it's an effort to be fresher than he was last week. Cobb practiced before ultimately sitting out against the Vikings. If Cobb does play, he'll likely be on a snap count behind Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams.

Randall Cobb (ankle) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

He caught balls from the Jugs machine but didn't wear pads or participate in any team or receiver drills. Cobb faces an uphill battle to play this week and can probably be ruled out if he doesn't return to practice on Friday. Geronimo Allison will play in three-wide sets if Cobb can't go against the Lions.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 01:50:00 PM

Updating an earlier report, Randall Cobb (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He worked off to the side but was listed as a DNP. Cobb has been dealing with ankle issues off and on all season. Jordy Nelson saw more snaps in the slot last week with Cobb sidelined against the Vikings.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 07:34:00 PM

Randall Cobb (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Cobb missed Week 16 against the Vikings, allowing Jordy Nelson to play the slot more. Nelson proceeded to shred Minnesota for a 9-154-2 line. Nelson has added the slot dynamic to his game this season and looks just as unstoppable there as he did on the outside. Cobb worked on the side Wednesday.
