Randall Cobb in, Jordy Nelson out at practice Tues.

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 1, 2013 – 4:38 pm

WR Randall Cobb was practicing during the media portion of the Packers’ jog-thru workout on Tuesday, but WR Jordy Nelson was not.

Cobb missed last week’s game with knee and ankle injuries but appears on track to return this week for the rematch in the NFC Wild Card playoff against the Vikings. Nelson injured his knee in last Sunday’s game at the Metrodome and came out briefly but returned to catch a game-tying TD pass in the fourth quarter.

Also not practicing on Tuesday were WR Jarrett Boykin (ankle) and DE Jerel Worthy (knee), who both left Sunday’s game with injuries.

CB Davon House was back at practice after missing last week’s game, and DB Charles Woodson continued to practice and could be on track to return after missing the final nine games of the regular season.

At running back, Alex Green didn’t play in last Sunday’s game but was practicing. Also, RB James Starks was at practice with helmet in hand, but in the portion open to the media did not appear to be participating.

Mike McCarthy will address the media after practice, near the top of the hour.

Post-practice update: Cobb spoke with reporters after practice and said he expects to play on Saturday.

“It was about a 50-50 decision,” Cobb said of sitting out last Sunday in Minnesota. “We felt it was the best option to hold out and I think I’ll be ready to go this week.”

McCarthy declined to comment on Nelson’s absence from practice, however, only saying he’d have more information on Wednesday. The first official injury report of the week will be on Wednesday.

    It sure would be nice to have our entire WR corps healthy for this game. Cobb, Nelson, Jennings and Jones on the field at the same time would be difficult for the Viking’s secondary to handle.

    Woodson needs to start at corner instead of Williams who apparently has no interest in playing contact football. We’ll need Williams again again Julio and company.

    It will save a lot of time sorting out the running backs if we just start Harris!!!!!!

    Pack needs to score on opening drive. It feels like we have not done that all season.

    Defense needs to be stout against the run! cannot allow AP to kill us for the third straight game.We must make Christian Ponder beat us so offense has to get off to a fast start. I would love to see Harris as the starter at rb.

    I believe in Harris at starting running back! The guys a bull and reminds me alot like Barry Sanders! His build and the way he runs! If the packers see what I see? He will be the starting RB!

    I drank a barium milkshake so I would have white droppings. Then I give them to the birds.

    We need to score early and often then the Viqueens will not be able to shove A.P. down our throats like the previous two games. I think the chances of Ponder having to beat us is slim at best.

    I wish I was a fly on the wall for the defensive backs meeting this week. I hope whoever is in charge tore all of em a new one, since when are professionals AFRAID to tackle????

    I’m with u…I wish I could’ve been able to speak to the team so that they will play with some heart! I’m tired of lesser teams beating us!

    Adrian Peterson is great, but I started wondering when you consistently get such a tight seal on the edge, there has to be holding. Did anyone see the Packers players bring it to the refs attention? If there were no missed holding calls, the defense is in trouble because they can’t contain squat then.
