Cobb caught one pass (on five targets), collecting 27 receiving yards during Sunday's 31-0 loss to Detroit. Outside of a Week 1 outburst against the Bears in which he mustered 142 receiving yards and a touchdown on 10 targets, Cobb's 2018 campaign was largely underwhelming. In what was his eighth pro campaign, the veteran wideout was besieged by injuries (hamstring, concussion) as he stumbled to his lowest outputs in receptions (38), receiving yards (383) and touchdowns (two) since his rookie season. With his contract expiring over the offseason and his availability on the field having been inconsistent of late, it remains to be seen if Cobb will continue to play for the franchise that drafted him 64th overall in the 2011 Draft.
Cobb (concussion) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Lions, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports. The Packers didn't actually practice Friday, but they estimate that Cobb would've been a full participant if they'd held a session. The 28-year-old slot receiver may be playing his final game for the franchise, as his contract expires at the end of the season. With Davante Adams (knee) questionable and Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) doubtful, Cobb may have a nice opportunity to surpass his usual range of 5-7 targets.
Cobb (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Earlier Thursday, Demovsky relayed Cobb got through the five phases of the concussion protocol, but his listing on the Packers' ensuing injury report suggests otherwise. With his status again murky, Cobb's standing bears monitoring Friday and perhaps into the weekend to get a sense of whether he may return Sunday versus the Lions. In 11 career games against them, he's recorded his second-most catches (48), yards (559) and touchdowns (four) against a given opponent.
Cobb was cleared from the concussion protocol Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. After the Packers' Week 15 loss in Chicago, Cobb was diagnosed with a head injury, entered the NFL's protocol and made no on-field appearances through Wednesday's practice. However, he fit in some activity Thursday prior to Demovsky's report, a combo that sets Cobb up to return for the season finale. If Davante Adams plays through a knee injury as expected Sunday against the Lions, the Packers receiving corps may just be down one player, rookie Equanimeous St. Brown, who entered the concussion protocol this past Sunday.
Cobb (concussion) is participating in the media-access portion of Thursday's practice, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. The Packers will provide an update later Thursday indicating whether Cobb's activity level constituted full or limited participation. Either way, it would represent a positive step forward for the wideout, who sat out the team's Week 16 win over the Jets with the head injury and was unable to practice Wednesday. Cobb has a shot to gain clearance from the concussion protocol and suit up in Sunday's season finale against the Lions.
