On Now
Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Randall Cobb will test ankle on Friday

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 27, 2012 – 4:28 pm

Randall CobbWR Randall Cobb said he’s feeling better every day, and the plan is to have him test his injured ankle on Friday to see if he can play on Sunday in Minnesota. He’s not making any promises, but he’s giving himself a chance.

“I think it’s a possibility,” Cobb said on Thursday after he observed practice. “We’re going to take it day by day and see where we are on Sunday.”

Cobb is thankful to feel the way he does right now because he was admittedly worried when he was injured on a third-quarter punt return against Tennessee. He exited the field and went to the locker room under his own power, but he said that’s because of who was watching.

“I jogged off the field because my mom was there,” Cobb said. “My mom, I know she was crazy in the stands. That’s the only reason I jogged off the field.

“Sunday, I was hurting pretty bad. When I woke up Monday, I felt a lot better. Just trying to get better each day.”

Cobb is listed on the injury report with both ankle and knee injuries, but he said the ankle is the bigger issue.

Mike McCarthy said earlier this week he wasn’t pulling Cobb off of return duties despite the increased risk, and Cobb likes it that way.

“I love football, I love being on the field,” he said. “I think if I wasn’t on returns, it would take away form who I am and what I do.

“Statistically, it may show that (there’s greater injury risk on special teams), but this is a physical, dangerous game that we play. At any given time, your career could end.

“You can’t go out there and play scared. You’ve got to go out there and play ball, regardless of what play it is, if it’s special teams, offense or defense.”

Fellow WR Jordy Nelson, who has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, was a full participant in Thursday’s full-pads practice and appears on track to return to the field.

“I’m not thinking about it,” Nelson said of his hamstring, which he has tweaked twice this season. “I don’t think you can. Going into it, you have to have the confidence that you’re ready to go. I have through he rehab I’ve done, the testing I’ve done, and obviously a week of practice. We’ve got one more day to continue to feel it out, and we’ll be ready to roll.”

    Jordy Nelson is a very crucial receiver. I hope he gets rested for the playoffs. The kind of injury he has is very bad and can get aggravated very easily. MM knows what he is doing and I hope he does the right thing. Getting a bye isnt as crucial as having your money receiver healthy

    I just hope all our catchers catch and RBs hang onto the ball! If the line does it’s job, I am sure Rodgers will be good.

    If Cobb can’t go, watch Rodgers turn Boykin into a star WR! If there were ever a game where Finley was needed, this might be it.

    I can’t wait for the whistle to blow!

    Finley needs to step up big, as well as Grant whom needs to hang on to the ball. He is hot right now, we should ride Grant. Everybody forgot about Jennings, good. He will be the “joker” in this game.

    I for one am excited to see Ross in for kick/punt returns. He got wheels. Maybe if MM sees a good show with this kid he won’t be afraid to take Cobb off special teams. I agree that Cobb is a great return threat; but, now that he’s been coming into form at receiver it’s time to develop another player for special teams. Also lets put driver in there and give him some tosses I know the old mans still got it

    Lots of trash talk over here on the Mn/WI border. Paul Allen on K-Fan radio, is trying to get our feathers ruffled by saying that Packer Fans are bad and trash talking the Queens. I haven’t really heard one thing said about us trash talking them. He just loves to bash the airways about how bad Packer Fans are and he is trying to get better ratings on his program. He like most Queen fans will jump off the band wagon once the Packers finish their business at the dome!!!! I hope there is lots of Packer fans there chanting GO PACK GO!!!

    I still think MM should not have Cobb in the return game. The law of averages catches up to every player regarding injuries the longer that player stays on the field.
    Clearly, Cobb’s role on the team is shifting to the go-to-guy as an every down player as both half back, and receiver. Why then, would you risk him returning kicks at a time when the league considers it so violent that it wants to eliminate it from football?
    Holmgren sat Robert Brooks from returning kickoffs when his role expanded after Sharpe retired from a neck injury for all of these obvious reasons.
    Im a strong supporter of MM, but I do question his wisdom on this topic especially considering Cobb’s importance, and how injury prone the Packers have been all season. Why, potentially, risk another injury to an integral piece of the winning machine?. Go Pack!.
