Cobb caught six passes (on nine targets) for 82 yards in Sunday's NFC championship loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb, who was Green Bay's only fully healthy starting wideout, led the team in receiving yards Sunday, finishing the playoffs with an impressive 18/260/3 stat line from three appearances. That production came after Cobb missed three regular season games due to hamstring and ankle problems, which limited him to just 60 receptions on 84 targets for 610 yards and four touchdowns. Besides his six-game, injury-shortened 2013 campaign, those numbers marked Cobb's worst season since his rookie year. Along the way, Davante Adams passed Cobb as the Packers' No. 2 wideout behind Jordy Nelson. While the potency of the team's passing game leaves plenty of opportunities for Cobb to make an impact, he'll enter next season coming off a down year that saw his fantasy stock slide.

Cobb secured seven of eight targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 34-31 divisional-round win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb was an effective cog in a diversified passing game for the Packers on Sunday, one that saw six different players notch receptions. While he didn't quite replicate the spectacular 116-yard, three-touchdown effort he supplied in the wild-card victory over the Giants, Cobb did help make up for the absence of Jordy Nelson (ribs) with his highest amount of receptions since Week 7. He's now notched 12 catches on 15 targets for 180 yards and the aforementioned trio of scores over the first two postseason games.

Cobb caught five of seven targets for 116 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 38-13 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb got going with a 42-yard Hail Mary touchdown to end the first half, and he added scores from 30 and 16 yards after the break to help his team to a comfortable victory. Most of his production notably came after Jordy Nelson was lost to injury, but Cobb had no trouble stepping into a larger role and finished just behind Davante Adams for the team lead in receiving. Cobb drew heaps of praise from Aaron Rodgers after the game and appears set to produce next week against the Cowboys -- especially if Nelson is forced to miss out.

Cobb (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's playoff game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb returns to the mix following a two-game absence to close the regular season and is thus set to reclaim a portion of the Packers' slot wideout duties, with the workload of Geronimo Allison potentially taking something of a hit Sunday, as a result.

Cobb (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff game versus the Giants, but he is expected to play, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb missed the Packers' final two regular season games due to an ankle problem, but in returning as a limited participant during practice this week, he should be back available Sunday. While having Cobb back in the fold is certainly a boost to the Packers offense, undrafted rookie Geronimo Allison's impressive performance in Cobb's absence makes Green Bay's division of No. 3 wideout snaps an interesting item to monitor Sunday.

Cobb (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A limited participant Wednesday in his first practice since Dec. 23, Cobb seems to be trending in the right direction. Such an assessment has credence due to a comment from head coach Mike McCarthy, who said Cobb had a "good day" Wednesday. Although turning in a similar showing Thursday doesn't imply that Cobb is closing in on a return to game action, expect his status to receive some clarity before week's end. With a tough matchup on tap Sunday against the Giants, the Packers could use his veteran savvy, despite the emergence of Geronimo Allison in the final two games of the regular season.

Cobb (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Testing his ankle for the first time in practice since Dec. 23, Cobb's level of participation isn't surprising as he attempts to snap a two-game absence. He's likely hopeful that he escapes the week of preparation with minimal lingering discomfort, making his progress in the coming days worth monitoring. No matter how he proceeds, though, Aaron Rodgers will lean on Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, and perhaps the emerging Geronimo Allison as the top-3 threats at wide receiver Sunday against the Giants.

Cobb (ankle) is slated to practice Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

In preparation for Week 17, Cobb stayed off his ankle with the aim of taking the field Sunday at Detroit, but the plan didn't yield the intended results. His activity level Wednesday may not extend beyond limited as he works himself into game shape. However, it will set the tone for his upcoming availability for Sunday's wild-card outing against the Giants.

Cobb (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday at Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb's ailing ankle has spurred a second consecutive absence to conclude the regular season, likely with the postseason in mind. In his absence, Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, and Geronimo Allison should top the target train among Packers wideouts in Week 17.

Cobb may suit up on Sunday night at Detroit, but his snaps would likely be limited if he's active, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb was held out of practice this week as a means to speed up the healing process on his balky ankle, according to Jason Wilde of ESPN.com. In the event both the Redskins and Buccaneers lose Sunday, the Packers' postseason fate could very well be determined by the time kickoff arrives at 8:30 PM ET. At that point, a victory versus the Lions would lock up the NFC North title, but head coach Mike McCarthy likely wouldn't want to risk an aggravation (or worse) by handing Cobb any snaps. Expect some clarification on Cobb's status upon the release of their inactive list this evening.
