Cobb will not play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Texans, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Cobb could have played Saturday if the Packers wanted to get him some live reps in head coach Matt LaFleur's system, but it was decided that was not worth the risk of an injury. Cobb and starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers spent eight seasons together earlier in their careers, so don't expect chemistry to be an issue between the two.
