Packers | Randall Cobb off crutches
Wed, 20 Nov 2013 19:06:49 -0800
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (leg) is off crutches and he is no longer using a Segway to get around. Cobb spoke with reporters Wednesday, Nov. 20, but he did not offer a timetable for when he will be able to return to practice. Cobb is on the Injured Reserve/designated to return list, and he will be eligible to play Dec. 15. He is eligible to practice two weeks before that. "I can't make that call right now," Cobb said. "Right now, today, I cannot play. I'm doing everything I can. I'm working my butt off in the rehab process, but this is something that needs time. It's getting better. There's still no timeline on when I can come back."
In the next week or two, it might be a good idea to stash Cobb on your fantasy bench if you have some roster flexibility, and now if you have a vacant injured spot. There is no guarantee he will be able to return at all, or be effective when he does come back. However, he is a dynamic player who is worth the risk.
