Injury report: Rodgers, Cobb clear list
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A week after making their long-awaited returns, neither quarterback Aaron Rodgers nor receiver Randall Cobb was even listed on the Green Bay Packers' injury report in advance of Sunday's NFC wild-card playoff game at Lambeau Field.
Rodgers said Wednesday that he hasn't experienced any issues with the broken left collarbone that kept him out for seven weeks before he returned last Sunday for the regular-season finale against the Chicago Bears.
Cobb, who played 37 of 78 snaps against the Bears, was supposed to be limited to about 15 snaps in his return from his Oct. 13 fractured right tibia.
"They look great, feel great," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "I have no worries about those two."
The Packers on Wednesday did not hold a regular session at the practice facility across the street from Lambeau but instead used some of the new workout facilities opened this season inside the stadium.
"We're further ahead than we would be on a normal Wednesday in a normal flow of the week," McCarthy said.
McCarthy said the team will practice in pads Thursday and plan to go outside for at least a portion of the Thursday and Friday practices. High temperatures are forecast to be in the single digits Sunday with the lows double-digits below zero.
Despite not practicing, NFL rules required them to submit an injury report with estimated levels of participation for their injured players.
