Randall Cobb says he hasn’t been cleared to run yet

Jim Schwartz, Randall Cobb, Aaron Rodgers AP

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers isn’t the only one the Packers are waiting patiently to get better.

But wide receiver Randall Cobb is running low on patience himself.

Cobb told Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com that he still hopes to play this year, but hasn’t been cleared to run yet since breaking his right leg on Oct. 13.

“I thought I was going to be cleared to run two weeks ago, and I still haven’t been,” Cobb said.

Cobb was then placed on injured reserve/designated for return, and he’d be eligible to play next week at Dallas. He said he was initially told it was a six- to eight-week recovery.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Cobb will be tested again Tuesday.

“Obviously, he’s not ready this week, and Tuesday will be a big day because that’s kind of the week we’ve always looked at for his availability,” McCarthy said. “So we’ll see how that sorts out on Tuesday.”

When told McCarthy said that, Cobb replied: “Did he? You broke some news to me.”

“I feel pretty good, but until I’m able to run and able to test out, I won’t know exactly where I’m at. It’s kind of hard to tell where I’m at without running,” Cobb said. “I talked to the doctor this morning, and after the scan that I had right before Thanksgiving, from what that scan showed, he still wasn’t ready to let me run yet.

“So until he gives the OK, I just continue to do the things I’ve been told I can do.”

At the moment, that doesn’t include running, which isn’t a good sign for his availability.

    0-5-1 over the last 6 games is a catastrophic failure. You could almost call it a historically bad 6 game stretch.

    Just shut him down already mike. You guys need like 6 playoff teams to lose this weekend AND a win just to have a statistical chance. It’s over. Enough posturing already.

    Not only do Packers keep getting injured, but they all seem to take longer to heal than what was expected. This isn’t bad luck, it’s organizational ineptness.

    Randall Cobb is one of the great young talents in the league, and his loss has presented a very difficult challenge. Fortunately he’ll be back and ready to win the season series again from the Vikings for a 5th straight year.

    I say just shut him and Rogers down and get a high draft pick to use on that D. Nothing is going to help you this season.

    The more we hear about my beloved Pack, the more dysfunctional they sound. TTs drafting guys who were good in a different system, MMs predictable play calling, switching the whole OL around when one guy goes down, these injuries and our supposed training staff, the DC and his same old schemes with no adjustments. What happened? Why doesn’t Cobb even know where his injury is at? Time to get another coaching staff. This is just plain stupid stuff, and it never ends. I understand that 4th stringers don’t play like pro bowlers, but a little help from the administration, please!!!!!!!

    Shut him and Aaron down for the year!!!
    This team has been an EPIC disappointment this year.

  8. grabgrabgrab says: Dec 6, 2013 5:59 PM

    Just another in a parade of amazing players who are unable to contribute due to injury.

    I know it’s the NFL and injuries happen, but not to this degree and certainly not the amount of quality players now M.I.A. CRAZY N SAD!!!

    Randall should have made us feel better by giving a Minnesota style response:

    “Oh ya, everything is fine. I feel real good ya know. But…(whispers) Aaron is actually not that hurt. He’s such a wuss. I hate him and I heard he’s gay.”

    He then walks over to Aaron…”Hi bud! How ya doin’!”

    We later find out that Cobb’s leg is still broken.

    Honesty, loyalty and virtually every other positive trait has been weeded out of the Minnesota gene pool intentionally within their pathetic, insular existence.

  10. contra74 says: Dec 6, 2013 6:05 PM

    The team should be renamed to the Green Bay Glass

  11. trollsetter says: Dec 6, 2013 6:12 PM

    Unfortunately, these injuries are looking like a trend for the Packers and fans shouldn’t be optimistic about it ending anytime soon. Just look at poor Percy Harvin, so young, so talented, but so injury prone. Just like the Packers.

    Vince Lombardi once said, “I can accept you’re gayness & skin color, but i cannot accept injury prone losers.”

  15. jjh1982 says: Dec 6, 2013 7:08 PM

    Good thing Lombardi didn’t coach the Vikings he wouldn’t have been around that long, you look up the term loser and you’ll find a picture of a Vikings fan

    Trolling the Packers message broad on a Friday night LMAO!!! Get a life LOSERS!!

    Keep the humor coming! Great comments coming from fans of the team without a trophy cabinet! EPIC FAIL!

    There goes filthy again displaying his lack of football knowledge. The Vikings and Packers SPLIT the SEASON SERIES last year. You see, a playoff game isn’t part of the season series, just the two normal games played against each other every year. Playoff games are included in the overall head to head match-up. But I know that doesn’t suit our purpose so you make thing up.

    I do agree with you on Cobb though.

    viking fans are uniquely qulaified to identify this when they see it, having witnessed it with their own team for over 50 years now.

    True, they are better than the poorest performing Vikings team in the last 50 years. (Well, maybe not so much lately since they did just tie after all…at home.)

    the viking trolls just can’t help themselves. Finishing dead last in the NFC North in 2 out of the last 3 years will do that to you.

    It’s so entertaining to read some of the rabid Packer Posts. They actually believe that getting Rodgers and eventually Cobb back in the next 4 games will help their terrible defense and O-line win enough to win the division or get a wild card slot, then actually win a playoff game against Seattle, New Orleans and/or San Fran. And then, beat New England, Denver or KC in the Super Bowl!

    You can’t make this stuff up. At least Vikes fans are realistic about their fate and have already begun dreaming about next year.

    Please, keep and posting the pipe dreams crazy Packer fans. I haven’t had so much fun since the pigs ate my little brother.

  23. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Dec 6, 2013 11:26 PM

    @contra, ted

    The injuries have been tough, no doubt, but you know Aaron, Randall, Sam, Bryan and the rest will be back next year. Meanwhile Vikes will still have no QB, no Allen, and AD will probably be in Houston. I’ll take out problems any day over that.

  24. taintedsaints2009 says: Dec 6, 2013 11:35 PM

    I’ve never seen a team suffer so many key injuries. Sorry, but if you be at the packers after these guys got hurt, you didn’t legitimately beat the packers. Lions and bears can never beat these guys legit.

    If Rodgers, Cobb, Finley, both their tackles, and that cornerback we’re healthy, this team would be dominating the NFC. It’s scary to think this team is going to have high draft picks next year, and will be healthy.

  25. crownofthehelmet says: Dec 7, 2013 2:01 AM

    Cobb would be the 5th recv’r on the Steelers, playing special teams.

  26. igocommando says: Dec 7, 2013 3:07 AM

    Did R Cobb call out Aaron Rodgers for being gay because of his stache or does he have other evidence? Either way, it’s not cool to out a teammate.

  27. doner80 says: Dec 7, 2013 7:13 AM

    The pack stink,what happened to the Eddie waistey hype what a joke!!!

  28. wafflestomp says: Dec 7, 2013 7:24 AM

    The entire Packer organization and their players consist of inept individuals, and obviously are all made of glass.

    The last 5 games have been the biggest monumental failure known to the sports world.

    If you try real hard (and you’re 12 years old) you can call Aaron Rodgers gay and give his name an effeminate connotation by dropping an A and adding sh. Hilarious by the way, again, if you meet certain age requirements.

    But in the end, with all things considered, the Packers are STILL better than the Vikings.

    For the simple minded, Packers>Vikings.

    P.S. ADRIAN Peterson, ERIN Henderson and LESLIE Frasier are all girl names with no embellishment needed. But then again, Packer fans are usually more mature then to point this out!
