Geronimo Allison, Randall Cobb still out of practice

The good news for Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison is that he’s out of the concussion protocol.

The bad news is that he’s still out of practice. Head coach Mike McCarthy said that Allison will be doing rehab work during Thursday’s practice because of a hamstring injury that was also an issue while he was dealing with his concussion.

Allison, who missed last Sunday’s loss to the Lions, will be joined in the rehab group by wide receiver Randall Cobb. Cobb has missed two straight games with a hamstring injury of his own.

With Allison and Cobb out of the lineup, the Packers were down to Davante Adams and three rookies at receiver for last weekend’s 31-23 loss. That may have contributed to the Lions jumping out to a 24-0 lead, although two lost fumbles for Aaron Rodgers and three missed field goals by Mason Crosby in the first half were also big parts of the mix.

    The Packers don’t need wide receivers with that vaunted defense. Did you hear they’re #4 in the NFL?
    ——————————————————————————————

    Actually the Packers defense is 6th, while the Vikings D, is 22nd, but we know you’re not interested in facts. Of course that blow out loss to the Bills at home didn’t help

    #4? I thought they were ranked #5. That’s pretty good, considering the season is nearly 1/3 over. I wouldn’t call it “vaunted.” That’s the exclusive domain of the Vikings, and rightly so. They’re downright vaunted. Have been. Ever since Zimmer showed up.

  3. Valdes-Scantling had a good game last week and looks more explosive than Randall Cobb at this time. And EQSB impressed me by fighting to get out of bounds on both his late catches.

    Both players have already had a longer catch in their careers than Treadwell ever has. How he remains the Vikings third best wideout is puzzling.

  4. Actually the Packers D is #4 and the Vikings D is #21.

    If you don’t believe me go to NFL.com and check the 2018 stats on defense.

    I see this fact triggers the Vikings troll. That makes it that much more enjoyable.👏👍

  5. Jared Goff and Josh Allen have been nicknamed “The Annihilator” by teammates (stemming from their Vikings games).

    irishgary said they were #6 and stellarperformance said they were #5. I was the one who brought up that they’re #4. Are you under the impression that irishgary and stellarperformance are Viking trolls?

    You guys are going to have to figure out how to handle having a vaunted defense.

  7. What really got the Packers was another blatant officiating blunder on detroits first punt. It hit the detroit player and even detroit knew so by downing the ball. The refs even managed to hose up that call even after review. Getting tough to watch.

  8. I prefer advanced stats for defense rather than just yards or points, neither of which tells a more complete story. Football Outsiders has the Packers defense at 17, about as average as it gets and that seems to pass the eye test. They have the Vikings 26th in defense currently, in large part due to the Bills game.

  9. @RobBryz

    You are the only Vikings troll triggered in this thread Rob, so I will let you figure out who I was referring to.

    I’m not sure you know what “vaunted” means Rob. Because this Packers D is far from receiving too much praise. There is a picture of the Vikings D next to ‘Vaunted’ in the dictionary.

    My information is from ESPN, even someone as limited as your self should be able to go to ESPN and check. I realize that goes against your grain in dealing with facts. As for being a Viking Troll, I usually stick to the Packers post where there are plenty of Viking Trolls, like yourself who like to spout their drivel.

    Both Stellar and you and your team of trolls should take a long vacation from PFT

  11. After last sundays beat down maybe they are ashamed to play?

    The oddest thing about your posts isn’t the complete ridiculousness of them, but the fact that you always get a handful of thumbs up. With your doing it yourself with your other usernames or there are a whole lot of nuts on the other side of the Mississippi.

    Why?

    How does one arrive at that conclusion????…

    There were 137 OTHER plays ran during that game.

    You’re trying to tell me they couldn’t have recaptured momentum at some point?.. IF they were the better team??….

    Do we even know where they’re ranked??

    Already today, I’ve seen #2 #4 and #6… its anarchy!!!

    I don’t know how Football Outsiders evaluates defenses, but the Vikings defense gave up fewer yards against the Bills than in any other game. The game got out of hand because the offense was so bad and continually gave them short fields, and longer scoring drives were aided by 15-yard personal foul penalties. They gave up 75 yards and 0 points in the second half but the offense was completely ineffective the whole game. I’d say the 556 yards and 38 points given up to the Rams was the game that really hurt their defensive rating.

  15. Packers continue to lead the league in Hamstring injuries year after year….Time to revisit their strength and conditioning practices.

    This is even more overdue than the firing of McCarthy.

    I don’t come on here to embarrass people but sometimes people do it to themselves and I need to defend the honor not of myself but of my good friend freefromwhatyouare. I know I’m a very limited person, but even I know that defenses should be judged by average yards per game, not total yards, when teams have played different numbers of games. Washington and Carolina are only ahead of Green Bay in total yards because they’ve played one fewer game. ESPN ranks on total yards, while NFL.com ranks on average yards.

    Now what were you saying about facts?

  17. Jesus.

    Who cares where the defenses are ranked in week 5? What a dumb argument!

    To the guy that is crying about the punt recovery…..

    What part of the refs calling it a fumble and the replay not finding anything to overturn it don’t you get?! When it comes to fumble replays, there has to be irrefutable evidence to overturn it! They saw it hit someone, they made a call on the field. Know the rules before you cry. As Aaron444 said, that was a 1st quarter issue, they had 3 1/2 quarters to over come it and didn’t. I get so sick of 1 play being blamed for packers losses or ties. The clay play didn’t cause the tie. Not stopping a td pass and a 2 point conversion and not being able to win on OT caused them to lose. Add the fact that the d gave up a 20 point quarter at HOME. You were lucky to get out with a tie.

  18. Rob,

    The preference is that you don’t come to a Packers post at all. It’s too bad you had to be prodded into looking up something.

  19. You could see the punt clearly hit detroits guy in the hand. Why do u think detroit downed the ball at the 1 instead of taking it one more yard into the endzone for a td. Clearly it didnt hit a packer. Cmon man.

  20. And here’s a thought, especially to you ninnies whining about Kevin King and the punt;

    Why the H#ll didn’t Tramon Williams fair catch that?????

    It hit at the 19 yard line!!

    Why on earth would you let it bounce??

    If I weren’t here, how would you ever know the Packers true defensive ranking?

  22. Anyone that thinks YPG is a good metric to rank a defense, doesn’t understand the game of football.

    At the end of regulation does the team that gives up the fewest yards win?

    I think they make the decision based on points.
