Cobb, Nelson, Boykin, McMillian all miss practice Wed.

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 9, 2013 – 12:42 pm

The state of the Packers’ receiving corps is suddenly in a bit of doubt after WRs Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin all were absent from practice on Wednesday during the portion of the workout open to reporters.

Nelson didn’t play a full game last week, while Boykin missed it entirely. Both were listed on the injury report. Cobb missed the regular-season finale at Minnesota due to ankle and knee injuries, but it isn’t known if his absence on Wednesday was related to that. Mike McCarthy will address the media and issue the first injury report of the week following practice.

Also, S Jerron McMillian missed practice for the second straight day, and veteran C Jeff Saturday appeared very limited and was not participating in the drills with his position group.

Post-practice update: McCarthy said he wasn’t overly concerned about the receiver position for Saturday. Cobb was home due to illness, and the coach is “hopeful” Nelson can practice on Thursday. Nelson has been dealing with an “ongoing” ankle issue.

McMillian has been absent due to a personal issue and was supposed to be traveling back to Green Bay on Wednesday, McCarthy said.

    Are you guys serious? If Donald Driver plays he will be nowhere even close to productive. Their DBs will lock him up like nothing. I understand that he is probably the best GB receiver of all time, but at this present time, he is not effective in the least bit.

    Drive still is good in the red-zone and in getting short first downs. As he does not play special teams, DD is a terrific teammate, role model, and all-time Packer great but he is too limited now in what he can contribute. Props to Drive!

    Play Driver already, will ‘ya?

    Maybe Driver can get on the field now.

    @Will, DD being on the field will pull off the more dominant CB’s and force safties to drop on him, these two actions will leave another receiver available to catch the ball. DD doesn’t have to catch the ball to be a solid presence. He’s not the best in the position, but he demands respect from the defence.

    Just a comment…what has happened to Davon House? He was doing so well earlier in the year….now nothing. We need him to help in zone coverage. Anyone agree or can comment?

    Come on already no brainer put DD in.

    You have to give the staff some atta boys. This team over the last few years have had some huge injuries and yet they have been able to plug players that can get the job done. They will come up with a plan. One win at a time. GO PACK!!!!

    I think House is just buried deep on an uber talented roster. Who should he replace? Both shields and williams have been great, and so has hayward.

    I really like House and i cant wait to see him on the field more either, but the guys ahead are awesome too.

    Coach, If you let Cobb return punts, please threaten to fine him if he runs sideways instead of just going straight up the field like Ross does.

    I agree Johnnygard, you don’t gain yards going sideways!

    It’s too many receivers that will be active, Driver won’t have a spot…its a young man’s game

    I have a lotion that I’ve enhanced with many of the infamous ghost peppers. Great enjoyment can be had by applying it to the testes.

    hope donald is active.. now the special teams may hold him back.. but would like him over Boykin… like donald in big game

    Donald Driver is through. Everyone understands that – except the chuckleheads who watch Dancing With the Stars that is.

    Will be close game,Kap will get a lesson on the quarteback position, packers have to tackle properly not like a bunch of wimps,

    StephenR: Why do you continue to insist that Donald Driver will draw dominant corners off of our other receivers? Dominant corners match up with dominant receivers, not with 4th- or 5th-string guys. I’ve got all the respect in the world for DD, but he’s not a top-notch guy anymore; not for Green Bay anyway.

    @Scott: Davon House went back to the sideline once Shields returned from injury. He is a player to be very, very excited about in the future though. Loved what I saw from him this season.

    Please have enough respect for Donald Driver to put him back in uniform and play the rest of our games, he has earned it and deserves this!

  30. By Matt on Jan 10, 2013 | Reply

    lets get DD on the field. Considering this may be his last year lets send him out with some solid playing time. He can get the tough first down yards and maybe draw coverage that opens up the more explosive recievers.

  31. By Darrell on Jan 10, 2013 | Reply

    My question to everyone: Are you guys concerned about Donald Driver playing or winning the the game? I’ll take winning the game whoever is playing.

  32. By Montanapackfan on Jan 12, 2013 | Reply

    Well put Darrel…love dd and always will but mm must choose the roster that positions our team for the win. One could argue playing dd over Finley if for no other reason than finley’s drops. Trust mm to lead the team to victory.

    Roll on green roll on
