The Packers don't have to start giving clues about the status of their injured players until Wednesday, but if practice participation this early in the week is any indication, wide receiver Randall Cobb will be ready for Saturday's playoff game versus the Vikings. Cobb sat out Week 17's loss in Minnesota because of a knee and ankle injury, but he was a full participant during Tuesday's practice. Cobb said on Monday that there is a 100 percent chance he plays in this weekend's rematch. Meanwhile, wide receiver Jordy Nelson , who missed some plays during the late stages of the loss because of a knee injury, didn't practice Tuesday. However, head coach Mike McCarthy downplayed the significance of the Nelson's absence, saying his injuries were not deemed to be serious.
The Packers' wide receiving corps, while it might be a little gimpy, should be out in full force against the Vikings. Players such as Cobb, Nelson and Greg Jennings are fine selections for your fantasy playoff team, especially since it seems hard to imagine them losing to the Vikings in consecutive weeks.
