Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was back at practice on Wednesday, according to Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Cobb has been dealing with a bicep injury that has kept him in and out of practice all training camp. It has been noticeably bothering him over the past couple weeks, prompting him to take a lighter load in practice.
Cobb has often practiced with a wrap on the shoulder. It's unclear if it's something that will go away with time, or if Cobb is making it work by getting back into practice. Either way, he's back and is looking good, which is important given that the Packers let Greg Jennings walk this offseason, and Jordy Nelson is dealing with injuries of his own and may not be ready for the start of the regular season.
Fantasy Impact: Cobb is being drafted relatively high at this point. Last season was Cobb's second year in the league, and he managed 80 receptions for 954 yards and eight touchdowns in 15 games. He's expected to start alongside Nelson once they are both healthy, and Cobb is likely going to be Aaron Rodgers' top target. His injury is a concern, but there's a lot of talent there and you should consider him for your team, but don't put all your hopes on that bicep.
