Randall Cobb could be back for Packers

Randall CobbThe Green Bay Packers are shaping up to potentially be one of the more dangerous teams entering the NFL playoffs.

Not only did the Packers announce that Aaron Rodgers will start the Week 17 contest against the Chicago Bears with the NFC North on the line, but head coach Mike McCarthy indicated that Randall Cobb could return as well.

The Packers’ official Twitter account tweeted that McCarthy said Cobb had a “very good” day of practice Thursday and that he took a positive step.

Cobb was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list after fracturing his leg on a low hit by Baltimore Ravens DB Matt Elam in Week 6. He practiced in pads on Thursday and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says there’s a “real chance” he could be activated for the game.

We don’t advise you to pick him up in fantasy for Week 17 because we doubt he would play a great amount of snaps, but his return would be a huge boost for Green Bay. He is one of their biggest playmakers and a threat to score any time he touches the ball.

With him and Rodgers back, Green Bay would be up there with the Seahawks, 49ers, Panthers and Saints as teams that could make a Super Bowl push.
