Cobb caught four passes for 30 yards in Sunday's tie with the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb exploded for 142 yards and a score in Week 1, but he was unable to come close to matching those numbers in the second game of the season. He presumably remains the No. 2 option at the wide receiver position for the Packers, but with Jimmy Graham and Geronimo Allison producing and Davante Adams locked in as the team's No. 1 receiver, there will be games like Sunday's -- he finished fourth on the team in receptions and yards and tied for third in targets -- where he finds himself lower on the pecking order.

Cobb will continue serving as the Packers' top punt returner, Zach Kruse of The Packers Wire reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fellow receiver Trevor Davis was in line to serve as the Packers' top return man, but he injured his hamstring prior to the season opener and landed on injured reserve, so Cobb filled in for Davis in Week 1, and will continue doing so for the time being. This won't affect Cobb's fantasy value much, but it does give him a slight boost in leagues that count return touchdowns for the player instead of or in addition to the team defense, and/or those that score return yardage.

Cobb enters the season as the Packers' No. 2 receiver behind Davante Adams despite rumors that he was on the trade block in August.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers were very careful with the members of their first-team offense this preseason, which left Cobb with only a small handful of snaps along the way. After a delayed start to training camp following surgery to remove cartilage from his right ankle, Cobb appears to be healthy as Green Bay's Week 1 matchup with Chicago draws closer, but it will be interesting to see if that ailment resurfaces and limits his availability or productivity as the season progresses.

Cobb (ankle) is suited up for Thursday's preseason contest against the Steelers, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb got a delayed start to training camp due to his recovery from surgery in mid-June to remove cartilage from his right ankle. He subsequently missed the Packers' preseason opener, but he may have increased his practice reps enough in the intervening week to join Aaron Rodgers for his (likely) sole series Thursday.

Cobb (ankle) took the practice field in pads Sunday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The activity marks Cobb's first in nearly a week due to recurring issues with the right ankle that underwent surgery after the offseason program. There's no telling how much work he'll fit in Sunday, but he's seemingly on track to make an appearance in the Packers' second preseason game Thursday versus the Steelers.

Cobb (ankle) did not play in Thursday's preseason opener.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb has dealt with a nagging ankle injury of late, so it probably was not too hard a decision to hold him out of Thursday's contest. Cobb is still expected to be ready for Week 1, and will be in the starting lineup as long as he is available.

Cobb (ankle) was held out of Tuesday's practice, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazettereports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb has been in and out of practice throughout training camp, trying to limit soreness in the ankle that required mid-June surgery to remove cartilage. He'll presumably be held out of Thursday's exhibition against the Titans, but he could still make an appearance at some point during the preseason.

Cobb (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

After the Packers' Family Night scrimmage Saturday, Cobb told Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com that he didn't suit up because the team is "just managing soreness right now" and "it's not a big concern." Cobb is alluding to the ankle that needed surgery to remove cartilage and required a walking boot in the immediate aftermath. On Monday, he took reps on the JUGS machine, left the field for a brief spell and later caught passes from Aaron Rodgers, per Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Expect Cobb to continue ramping up his workload with an eye on full health for the regular season.

Cobb is downplaying a right ankle issue that led to him sitting out Saturday's practice, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. "We're just managing the soreness right now, but it's not a big [concern]," Cobb noted afterward.

EDGE Analysis

Though the wideout isn't overly concerned about the issue, it's worth noting that Cobb had a procedure on the same ankle earlier this summer in order to remove cartilage. Once he's back on the field, Cobb will continue to see first-team reps along with Davante Adams, an arrangement cemented by the offseason departure of Jordy Nelson.

Cobb, who underwent surgery six weeks ago, did not require an invasive procedure and simply needed nagging cartilage removed from his ankle, Michael Cohen of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.

EDGE Analysis

Last month Cobb was seen in an airport sporting a walking boot, raising concern over the receiver's health status in advance of training camp. However, it sounds like the receiver was never dealing with anything serious, or anything that may resurface later on this year. With this ordeal behind him, Cobb has been practicing with the first-team offense during the opening days of training camp, and that's highly unlikely to change anytime soon.
