The Cowboys and Cobb reached an agreement on a contract Tuesday, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the departure of Cole Beasley in free agency, there was a clear need at slot receiver in Dallas. Cobb will fill the void after doing so the past eight seasons with the Packers. Injuries are the biggest concern for the 28-year-old, who has missed 23 regular-season games in his career (including 11 over the past three years). He also has just one 1,000-yard campaign, 11.8 yards per catch and 8.2 yards per target to his credit. Cobb will vie for targets with Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Gallup in 2019.

Cobb is visiting with the Cowboys on Monday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old would be a sensible replacement for slot specialist Cole Beasley, who signed a four-year, $29 million contract with the Bills last week. Cobb's best work has been much better than Beasley's, but issues with durability and consistency could force Cobb to settle for a similar contract or even a smaller one. Dallas would be a poor fit in terms of regaining fantasy relevance, as Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper figure to hog volume in Jason Garrett's run-first offense. There hasn't been much suggestion of the Packers making an honest effort to retain their 2011 second-round pick.

Cobb caught one pass (on five targets), collecting 27 receiving yards during Sunday's 31-0 loss to Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Outside of a Week 1 outburst against the Bears in which he mustered 142 receiving yards and a touchdown on 10 targets, Cobb's 2018 campaign was largely underwhelming. In what was his eighth pro campaign, the veteran wideout was besieged by injuries (hamstring, concussion) as he stumbled to his lowest receiving outputs in receptions (38), yards (383) and touchdowns (two) since his rookie season. With his contract expiring over the offseason and his availability on the field having been inconsistent of late, it remains to be seen if Cobb will continue to play for the franchise that drafted him 64th overall in the 2011 Draft.

Cobb (concussion) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Lions, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers didn't actually practice Friday, but they estimate that Cobb would've been a full participant if they'd held a session. The 28-year-old slot receiver may be playing his final game for the franchise, as his contract expires at the end of the season. With Davante Adams (knee) questionable and Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) doubtful, Cobb may have a nice opportunity to surpass his usual range of 5-7 targets.

Cobb (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Earlier Thursday, Demovsky relayed Cobb got through the five phases of the concussion protocol, but his listing on the Packers' ensuing injury report suggests otherwise. With his status again murky, Cobb's standing bears monitoring Friday and perhaps into the weekend to get a sense of whether he may return Sunday versus the Lions. In 11 career games against them, he's recorded his second-most catches (48), yards (559) and touchdowns (four) against a given opponent.

Cobb was cleared from the concussion protocol Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After the Packers' Week 15 loss in Chicago, Cobb was diagnosed with a head injury, entered the NFL's protocol and made no on-field appearances through Wednesday's practice. However, he fit in some activity Thursday prior to Demovsky's report, a combo that sets Cobb up to return for the season finale. If Davante Adams plays through a knee injury as expected, the Packers receiving corps may just be down one player, rookie Equanimeous St. Brown, who entered the concussion protocol this past Sunday.

Cobb (concussion) is participating in the media-access portion of Thursday's practice, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers will provide an update later Thursday indicating whether Cobb's activity level constituted full or limited participation. Either way, it would represent a positive step forward for the wideout, who sat out the Week 16 win over the Jets with the head injury and was unable to practice Wednesday. Cobb has a shot to gain clearance from the concussion protocol and suit up in Sunday's season finale against the Lions.

Cobb (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb has yet to step foot on the practice field since picking up a concussion Week 15 at Chicago. Without a return to drills Thursday or Friday, he'll be in danger of closing out his eighth pro season with back-to-back absences. It should be noted Davante Adams (undisclosed) and Equanimeous St. Brown (head) also were included in the rehab group Wednesday, so Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow are in line for elevated workloads, at least in practice this week.

Cobb (concussion) is listed as inactive Sunday at the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers' hand was forced after Cobb managed no practice reps this week in his journey through the concussion protocol. Considering his standing, he's not close to meeting with an independent neurologist, which would mark the last step to gaining clearance to play. First, he'll attempt to return to practice during Week 17 preparations. In Cobb's absence, Equanimeous St. Brown is slated to work as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Davante Adams, with Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow (hand) splitting most of the remaining reps.

Cobb (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game at the Jets, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb didn't practice at all this week and doesn't seem to have any real shot at making it through the concussion protocol before Sunday. His presumed absence will free up more snaps for some combination of Equanimeous St. Brown, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow (hand), J'Mon Moore and recent signing Allen Lazard. It was St. Brown who led the aforementioned group with a 62 percent snap share in last week's 24-17 loss to Chicago, finishing comfortably ahead of Valdes-Scantling and Kumerow (31 percent apiece) while Moore strictly played special teams.
