Cobb caught five of six targets for 24 yards and added two carries for 11 yards in Sunday's win over Washington.
Cobb's longest grab went for only nine yards, as he was primarily a possession receiver on the day even though Dak Prescott continued to stretch the field. The former Packer will have his moments in what's looking like a very explosive Dallas passing game, but on most weeks he'll need to score a touchdown to be useful outside of deeper PPR formats.
Cobb caught four of five targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Giants.
The former Packer was on the receiving end of Dak Prescott's last of four TD passes on the day, a 25-yard strike in the third quarter. Cobb was the clear No. 3 option for Prescott behind Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, but the offense's explosive performance left plenty of production for all three WRs. Cobb may not have many games this good in 2019, but he gets another seemingly solid matchup Week 2 against a Washington secondary that just allowed 313 yards and three TDs to Carson Wentz.
Cobb caught his only target for 10 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Texans.
The Cowboys' first-team offense was only on the field for two drives, but Cobb still hooked up with Dak Prescott for a nice catch over the middle that helped set up the first touchdown of the night. The former Packer is set as the slot receiver for his new squad, and if Amari Cooper (foot) isn't 100 percent to begin the regular season, Cobb could see more targets than expected out of the gate.
Cobb caught his only target for a seven-yard gain during Saturday's 14-10 win over the Rams.
Cobb wasn't heavily involved in this one, but he did contribute on the Cowboys' opening touchdown drive with a short catch as they worked their way into the red zone. Although reports suggest he's building a nice rapport with Dak Prescott, the veteran has yet to make a significant impact through two preseason games. It should be noted, however, that the starters have played just two drives to this point, so Cobb should have a better opportunity to contribute next Saturday against the Texans.
Cobb has formed a quick connection with Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, Clarence Hill Jr. of the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Early indications are that the former Packer may be used in different packages than departed slot receiver Cole Beasley, getting more opportunities in the running game on reverses and jet sweeps in addition to routes underneath and over the middle. Cobb isn't likely to see an increase in workload in Dallas, however -- Beasley averaged 5.3 targets per game over the last three seasons, less than Cobb's 6.4 over that same time frame in Green Bay, and second-year receiver Michael Gallup will also be pushing for more looks from Prescott.
The Cowboys and Cobb reached an agreement on a contract Tuesday, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports.
With the departure of Cole Beasley in free agency, Dallas had a clear need at slot receiver. Cobb will fill the void after doing so the past eight seasons with the Packers. Injuries are the biggest concern for the 28-year-old, who has missed 23 regular-season games in his career (including 11 over the past three years). He also has just one 1,000-yard campaign, 11.8 yards per catch and 8.2 yards per target to his credit. Cobb will vie for looks with Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Gallup in 2019.
Cobb is visiting with the Cowboys on Monday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
The 28-year-old would be a sensible replacement for slot specialist Cole Beasley, who signed a four-year, $29 million contract with the Bills last week. Cobb's best work has been much better than Beasley's, but issues with durability and consistency could force Cobb to settle for a similar contract or even a smaller one. Dallas would be a poor fit in terms of regaining fantasy relevance, as Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper figure to hog volume in Jason Garrett's run-first offense. There hasn't been much suggestion of the Packers making an honest effort to retain their 2011 second-round pick.
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.
Cobb (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Cobb has yet to step foot on the practice field since picking up a concussion Week 15 at Chicago. Without a return to drills Thursday or Friday, he'll be in danger of closing out his eighth season with back-to-back absences. It should be noted Davante Adams (undisclosed) and Equanimeous St. Brown (head) also were included in the rehab group Wednesday, so Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow are in line for elevated workloads this week, at least in practice.
Cobb (concussion) is listed as inactive Sunday at the Jets.
The Packers' hand was forced after Cobb managed no practice reps this week in his journey through the concussion protocol. Considering his standing, he's not close to meeting with an independent neurologist, which would mark the last step to gaining clearance to play. First, he'll attempt to return to practice during Week 17 preparations. In Cobb's absence, Equanimeous St. Brown is slated to work as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Davante Adams, with Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow (hand) splitting most of the remaining reps.
Cobb (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game at the Jets, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Cobb didn't practice at all this week and doesn't seem to have any real shot at making it through the concussion protocol before Sunday. His presumed absence will free up more snaps for some combination of Equanimeous St. Brown, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow (hand), J'Mon Moore and recent signing Allen Lazard. It was St. Brown who led the aforementioned group with a 62 percent snap share in last week's 24-17 loss to Chicago, finishing comfortably ahead of Valdes-Scantling (31 percent) and Kumerow (31 percent) while Moore strictly played special teams.
Cobb (concussion) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Cobb's ability to progress even to non-contact work in practice suggests he remains stuck in the initial stages of the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. The wideout still has a few days for his condition to take a turn for the better before the Week 16 showdown with the Jets, but the Packers might not be inclined to rush him back into action even if he gains clearance to play. Cobb doesn't have a problematic history of head injuries, but he's missed six games this season on account of hamstring issues and could probably benefit from some rest over the final two contests of 2018.
Cobb (concussion) isn't practicing Wednesday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Coach Joe Philbin said he doesn't plan to rest banged-up players over the final two weeks of the season, but a cautious approach nonetheless makes sense when dealing with a veteran player recovering from a concussion. Even with no reported history of head injuries, Cobb doesn't have much to gain by playing in Sunday's game against the Jets. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, and a Week 16 absence would free up more snaps for some combination of developmental prospects Equanimeous St. Brown, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow and J'Mon Moore.
Cobb has entered the concussion protocol, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Cobb was on the receiving end of a hit from safety Eddie Jackson in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 24-17 loss in Chicago and wasn't targeted the rest of the game. Finishing with three receptions (on seven targets) for 30 yards, Cobb now seems to be in danger of missing more time as he navigates through the NFL's protocol for head injuries. If he doesn't gain clearance from an independent neurologist before season's end, he'll yield the No. 2 wide receiver position behind Davante Adams to Equanimeous St. Brown. Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow and J'Mon Moore also would be in line for more snaps.
Cobb was evaluated for a concussion near the end of Sunday's 24-17 loss at Chicago, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
With the Packers down 24-14 and driving, Cobb hauled in a pass from Aaron Rodgers and was lit up by Eddie Jackson, drawing a flag that was eventually picked up. Cobb wasn't targeted thereafter and finished with three catches (on seven targets) for 30 yards. If he's diagnosed with a concussion, it would mark the first known head injury of Cobb's eight-year career.
Cobb (hamstring) practiced fully Thursday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Cobb is thus ready to go for Sunday's visit to Chicago, whose defense has been yielding to opposing wide receivers this season. In 12 contests, the unit has allowed 14.2 receptions and 171.5 yards per game to go with 12 touchdowns to the position. One of those scores was a 75-yarder by Cobb that served as the game-winner Week 1.
