Randall Cobb will be evaluated; could come off IR

GREEN BAY–Wide receiver Randall Cobb will be evaluated on Saturday and a decision will be made on whether or not to take him off injured reserve and activate him for Sunday’s game in Chicago.

“We gave Randall a bunch of work today. We’ll see how it goes,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Friday.

“Randall Cobb is a playmaker. He’s dangerous with the ball in his hand. Our offense is based on making the quarterback successful. Football comes very natural to him,” McCarthy said.

Cobb sustained a leg injury on Oct. 13 and was assigned to the injured reserve list, though he was designated for return.

McCarthy confirmed that linebacker Clay Matthews has undergone a second surgery on his thumb, which he reinjured this past Sunday while sacking Ben Roethlisberger.

More from McCarthy:

McCarthy said the approach with Cobb was to push him as much as possible on Friday and see how he feels on Saturday after the extensive work.

“The push has really come the last two weeks for Randall Cobb,” McCarthy said. “You could see he was coming on strong. I thought he did some good things last week, but he wasn’t ready. He’s fighting through the soreness and the things you would expect, coming back from the seriousness of his injury. He looks good. He’s got fresh legs. He’s doing all the little things. The fine-motor-skill things he was able to stay on top of.

“We just have to make sure he’s ready to go.”

With Matthews out, the Packers are back to where they were earlier in the season at outside linebacker, counting on rookies Andy Mulumba and Nate Palmer to back up Nick Perry and Mike Neal.

“This experience of playing a lot of players, particularly younger players a little earlier than you’d like, we’re hoping to see the benefits come crunch time,” McCarthy said. “And we’re at crunch time.”

Regarding the decision to play QB Aaron Rodgers this week, McCarthy said any concern for the risk of re-injury will not affect the play-calling. If that were the case, Rodgers wouldn’t be playing.

“That goes back to the decision,” McCarthy said. “It’s time for Aaron to play. We’re going to cut him loose, and we’re going to go play. We’re going to play to win.”
