McCarthy says Randall Cobb had a “very good” practice on Thursday

Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb, who’s been out with a broken leg since October 13, had a “very good day” of practice on Thursday, coach Mike McCarthy said this afternoon.

McCarthy made his assessment of Cobb after being asked whether the receiver had a chance to play Sunday at Chicago. While not definitively saying whether Cobb would play or not play in the season finale, McCarthy said he was more optimistic about the wide receiver’s condition than he was earlier in the day.  

“I feel a lot better now than I probably did this morning,” McCarthy said. “But he definitely took a step in that direction.”

Cobb would have to be activated off of injured reserve to return to the Packers’ lineup. The 23-year-old receiver has caught 29 passes for 378 yards and two touchdowns in five games this season.

The Packers will have quarterback Aaron Rodgers back in the starting lineup Sunday as Green Bay faces Chicago for the NFC North title and the right to host a first-round playoff game next weekend.

    Good Lord, is the NFCN going to have to go through the “will he/won’t he play” with this guy now? Does the Green Bay team physician get paid per the daily physical/bone scan of each player?

    Fellow packer fans keep your expectations low.

    Settle for winning a weak division in a bad year, prepare for the inevitable one or MAYBE two and done in the playoffs. No way this team can go on the road in the div round and win.

    But first beat the bears

    A QB and a WR that haven’t been on the field for a couple of months.

    A recipe for disaster…

    A lot of hype, but it most likely means very little.

    If he can he will.

    The natural order demands the Pack playing Da Bears for the Division title.

    But the real warm and fuzzy feeling about this weekend is the vikqueens vs Lions in the last game played in the metrodump and nobody will even notice it.

    I’m just so relieved that the serious injuries cheesebay has incurred didn’t happen playing the Vikings.
    On top of being labeled as “tasteless & hapless” by a certain pft narcissist, I think by adding that the Vikings “shred cheese” would be grossly overstating.

    This will be overshadowed by the Rodgers news, but the potential impact of Cobb returning is enormous. Rodgers-less offense would have looked a lot different over the last several weeks with 18 in there…
