Randall Cobb cleared for running

Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is eligible to be activated from injured reserve for this week’s game against the Cowboys, but it doesn’t look like that will happen.

Cobb hasn’t practiced and hasn’t been cleared to play in a game, so Week 15 is probably going to be too fast for him to get back on the field. He has taken a step toward getting back before the year is over, however.

Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com reports that Cobb said he’s been cleared by doctors to start running after spending the last two months rehabbing his fractured right tibia. Cobb expressed some frustration last week that he had not been given the green light to start running, but he obviously made some progress in the last few days for doctors to sign off on an increased workload.

The Packers placed Myles White on injured reserve this week, leaving them with Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Jarrett Boykin and Chris Harper at wide receiver on the 53-man roster.

    Just get past the Cowboys with Flynn, and the regular starters will take it from there.

    You mean Randall “Tex” Cobb is back? He has uncommon valor!

    It’s important for Cobb to return as because the Packers are still in contention. There is meaningful football left to be played.

    Unlike the Vikings.

    I have fractured many tibia, and none of them have healed. Not one. Ever.

    The Packers are in contention to get whipped in the playoffs.

    I hope he gets well things are still up in the air… if Tebow can take the Broncos to the playoffs from 2-4 I don’t see why the Packers can’t sneak in. Of course they need a win this Sunday to keep there hopes alive.

    If they can get healthy and even use Cobb sparingly the last week and or playoffs, if he can play. If not Rodgers does well getting the ball to recievers and putting Lacy in spots to get easier yards vs the D.

    If they are out of the running before Rodgers and Cobb are back I would rather have them be healthy next season then suffer a silly set back.

    Nutshell speak. Comeon Pack fans, I do not care how “hot” they get there is no way Pack can beat Saints, 49ers or Seahawks. Not with that D. Hi risk, low reward. Plan for next year.

    It was reported as a fibular fracture all along. When did it change to a tibia?
