While there wasn’t much concern about Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ missing practice yesterday, they were still glad to get him back today.
And having one of his favorite targets back added to the good news.
According to Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com, Rodgers and wide receiver Randall Cobb were back on the field Wednesday when practice began.
Rodgers just had a head cold and was out a day, but Cobb has been in and out of camp with a biceps injury. He said last week he’s trying to strike a balance between getting the work he needs and taking care of his body, and apparently he’s back at a spot where he feels like he can contribute.
That’s a solid step for an offense that needs its trusted playmakers, since Jordy Nelson’s still recovering from a knee procedure and isn’t a lock for the regular season opener.
