Packers WR Randall Cobb will be game-time decision; WR Jordy Nelson is back

The Packers have been able overcome multiple injuries to their receiving corps all season long by plugging in the next man up without missing a beat. That will probably happen again this Sunday. Green Bay may be without wide receiver Randall Cobb @rcobb18 against the Vikings because of an ankle injury. He saw his first practice action of the week on Friday and was limited in the session. He will be a game-time decision, but the Packers won't need to rush Cobb, because Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson is ready to play again after missing the past games due to a hamstring injury. Nelson practiced in full all week and is listed as probable on the injury report.

Fantasy Analysis:

Cobb reportedly looked good in Friday's practice, and the Packers need to beat the Vikings to clinch a first-round bye, so maybe they roll him out there. But fantasy owners should start making backup plans. Cobb may very well be limited if he is active. Nelson carries some risk following his extended layoff due to a soft-tissue injury, but he is no worse than a WR3 against the Vikings' poor pass defense.
