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.
