Cobb caught one pass (on three targets) for 33 yards in Sunday's 34-27 win over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb's quiet performance came on Aaron Rodgers' strongest showing of the season thus far. The veteran wideout's only damage came on a 33-yard pass as a result of a broken play, while Jordy Nelson recorded six catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns. That being said, Cobb is still arguably Rodgers' favorite check-down receiver, and as Nelson starts stretching the field vertically with long routes, space should open up for Cobb to work shorter routes closer to the line of scrimmage. He still carries great value, especially in PPR leagues, and will look to get back on track Week 5 against the Giants after a bye in Week 4.

Cobb secured five of seven targets for 42 yards in the Packers' Week 2 loss to the Vikings, adding one yard off one rushing attempt.

EDGE Analysis

The Vikings' defense harassed QB Aaron Rodgers on Sunday to the tune of five sacks, three forced fumbles and one interception. Consequently, the Packers generated just 213 yards of offense through the air. It figures to be just a matter of time before the Green Bay offense gets back in sync, a la pre-2015, and in such an event, Cobb's numbers would likely look much different than his pair of pedestrian stat lines through two games into 2016. In fact, Cobb owners may not have to wait very long at all for a statistical rebound, as the Packers square off against an injury-depleted Lions defense Week 3.

Cobb hauled in six of eight targets for a team-leading 57 yards in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb managed to bring in a 32-yard gain for the Packers' longest gain of the day, but he averaged five yards per catch on his other five receptions as the Packers struggled to generate plays down the field. The Jaguars are much improved on the defensive side of the ball and it was only the first game of the season, so Green Bay should improve their efficiency moving forward, although a matchup versus a tough Vikings defense awaits in Week 2.

Cobb will not play in the Packers' preseason matchup with Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb recorded 30 yards and a touchdown on three catches in the Packers game last week, and now joins a bulk of the Green Bay starters on the sidelines for the preseason finale. Look for Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery to see some extra reps with Cobb out.

Cobb caught three passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in Friday's exhibition matchup with the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb and quarterback Aaron Rodgers were in sync Friday, and they capped a long touchdown drive by linking up for a second-quarter score. Cobb has not shown any ill effects of the punctured lung he suffered last postseason, so he is on track to head into Week 1, as expected, with the starting wide receiver spot opposite Jordy Nelson.

Cobb (calf) was not targeted in Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Far more important than the lack of statistics, Cobb proved he's moved past the calf injury that held him out of Green Bay's first preseason contest. He's entrenched as one of the top two options in a high-powered passing game, giving him upside far beyond what he demonstrated during an injury-plagued 2015 campaign.

Cobb (calf) returned to practice on Sunday, Michael Cohen of the Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb was held out of Friday's preseason opener versus the Browns, but it appears the injury was minor and he's back in pads for practice Sunday. Look for him to move back into his role with the starting offense and barring any setbacks during the week, he should be available for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Raiders.

Cobb didn't practice Wednesday due to a calf injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb was seen on the side observing practice without pads and a helmet. Even if the injury turns out to be minor, it wouldn't be a shock if the Packers hold the wide receiver out of Friday's preseason game against the Browns.

Cobb is not participating in practice Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb is not in pads or a helmet at Wednesday's practice, but he is on the field watching his teammates. There doesn't appear to be much, if anything, wrong with Cobb as the Packers need to keep him healthy while a good portion of their receiving corps remains beaten up.

Cobb suffered a punctured lung during the Packers' divisional round loss at Arizona, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

During a spot Wednesday at Super Bowl 50's Radio Row, Cobb revealed the nature of the lung injury that knocked him out of the playoffs, relaying "I punctured my lung." Because he avoided a rib fracture in the process of landing on his back, he speculated that the fact he was miked up played a role in the injury, which left the Packers reeling at wideout in the eventual defeat. Nevertheless, with Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL, Aaron Rodgers is poised to have his entire arsenal of weapons healthy at the outset of next season.
