NFL Injury Report:
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was limited at
practice Wednesday and will once again participate on a limited basis today.
However, coach Mike McCarthy said the talented wide out will test his injuries
on Friday to see whether or not he’s fit to play this weekend against the
Minnesota Vikings, reports Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Cobb will be limited today and tomorrow and then Friday will
test to see how he's doing. In addition to ankle injury, his knee is hurt, too.
Beyond the ankle injury Cobb sustained last weekend against
the Tennessee Titans, the wide receiver is also dealing with an injured knee,
according to Silverstein. For this reason, it may be more likely that Green Bay
elects to keep him sidelined for their final game of the regular season.
The second-year wide out is in the midst of a breakout
campaign. So far this season Cobb has caught 80 passes for 954 yards and eight
touchdowns while playing a key role in the Packers’ return game.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers veteran defensive back Charles Woodson has been ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale in Minnesota, missing his ninth consecutive game.
Woodson broke his collarbone on Oct. 21 and coach Mike McCarthy expected the injury to keep the eight-time Pro Bowl selection out for six weeks. But, 10 weeks later, Woodson has still not been cleared by Green...

Another week, another snap decision by the Green Bay Packers' medical staff regarding Charles Woodson.

Packers receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) practiced Thursday.Fantasy Spin:Nelson (46-658-6) has missed the last three games and most of a fourth due to a hamstring injury but coach Mike McCarthy said the receiver is "very close" to returning. Randall Cobb is questionable for Sunday so Nelson could return to a big role in Week 17.
Aaron Rodgers has proven himself as a passer, but the Vikings are particularly impressed with his ability to move around, both in the pocket and outside, creating a lot of problems for the defenders in coverage.
The Green Bay Packers will admit that they respect Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. Having faced him so many times, they know what he is about, both as a player and a person. It is very difficult not to root for a player of Peterson’s caliber not to make history as he chases Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing yards record on Sunday.
