Cobb doesn't have a designation in advance of Thursday's game against the Bears, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb's optimism translated to full practices both Tuesday and Wednesday, paving the way for his first appearance since Week 2 in Atlanta. In 11 career games versus the Bears, he's tallied seven touchdowns while averaging 56 receiving yards per outing.

Cobb (chest) said Tuesday that he's "optimistic" he'll play Thursday against the Bears, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After practicing on a limited basis Monday, Cobb was upgraded to a full participant Tuesday, signaling that he would be on track to play after a one-game absence. Cobb's comments only further support the idea that he'll be back in the fold Thursday, so unless he suffers some sort of setback during Wednesday's session, it looks as though he won't miss any further time. The likely return of Cobb would result in a downgrade in the fantasy stock of Geronimo Allison, who saw an appreciable bump in targets in last Sunday's win over the Bengals, reeling in six passes for 122 yards.

Cobb (chest) was listed as a full participant at Tuesday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

After failing to practice at all last week, it was unsurprising that Cobb ultimately sat out Sunday's win over the Bengals. The short turnaround for the Week 4 game against the Bears initially made it seem likely that Cobb would be at risk of missing a second straight game, but after the wideout practiced on back-to-back days, it now seems more probable than not that he'll be back on the field for Thursday's contest. Cobb's likely return would presumably result in a downgrade in snaps and targets for Geronimo Allison, who thrived in the veteran's absence in Week 3, hauling in six of eight targets for 122 yards.

Cobb (chest) participated in Tuesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers estimated that Cobb would have been a limited participant Monday had they actually practiced, so his return Tuesday isn't much of a surprise. The short week, however, still likely leaves Cobb's status for Thursday as questionable, and his level of participation Wednesday should help clear the air.

Cobb (chest) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's injury report, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers didn't actually practice, so the report merely serves as an estimate. Cobb didn't practice at all last week and admitted Sunday that he didn't come close to playing in Sunday's eventual 27-24 win over the Bengals. Given the short turnaround ahead of a Thursday night game, he's in serious danger of sitting out against the Bears. The Tuesday injury report should be a bit more informative, as the Packers presumably will hold some kind of practice.

Cobb (chest) said following Sunday's victory over the Bengals that he was "not really" close to playing in the contest, the Wisconsin State Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb did not provide specifics of the injury that kept him out Sunday, so it's difficult to gauge his status moving forward. However, he did not practice last week and seemingly did not have a real chance to play Sunday, so it could be tough for him to get back on the field in Week 4 with just a few days to prepare prior to the Packers' matchup with the Bears on Thursday night.

Cobb (chest) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Bengals, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb's listing among the Packers' inactives is no surprise with no practice reps in advance of the contest. Aaron Rodgers will still have Jordy Nelson (quadriceps), Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison and Martellus Bennett at his disposal, so the Packers can afford to give Cobb as much time as he needs in his recovery.

Cobb (chest) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A previous report suggested Cobb likely would come down to a game-time decision, and while the Packers aren't quite ready to rule him out, the slot receiver apparently has less than a 50-50 chance to play. He didn't practice at all this week, whereas Jordy Nelson (quad) was a full participant at every practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday. The Packers often use Nelson in the slot when Cobb isn't available, which would in turn free up snaps for Geronimo Allison outside. The team also could deploy more two-TE formations with both Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks on the field.

Cobb (chest) will likely be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Bengals, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb was unable to practice both Wednesday and Thursday, and McCarthy indicated he might not get in any work Friday either. However, it appears he will still have a chance to play in Week 3 if he is feeling good enough to take the field Sunday morning.

Cobb (chest) didn't take part in practice Thursday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Until Wednesday, Cobb was believed to be dealing with a shoulder ailment, but the reason cited for DNPs this week has been a chest injury. Ideally, he'll return to drills in some capacity Friday, which would open the door to active status Sunday against the Bengals. In the end, his listing, whether its questionable or otherwise, will forecast his odds of playing. In the event of an absence, Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams would serve as the top two wideouts, with Geronimo Allison, Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis rounding out the corps.
