Cobb notched 11 receptions on 15 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown and added 21 yards on five carries in Thursday's 26-10 win over the Bears.
Like teammate Ty Montgomery, Cobb was called upon for some double duty Thursday given the decimated state of the Packers backfield. He contributed modestly on the ground but was solid through the air while receiving the second-most targets on the night. Cobb has now scored in consecutive weeks after getting shut of the end zone over Green Bay's first four games, and has seen a total of 37 targets over the last three contests. That level of attention is likely unsustainable over the long term, but the sixth-year pro has certainly regained his footing in the offense after some early-season struggles.
Cobb (back) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's contest against the Bears, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Building up to a full practice by Wednesday, Cobb is good to go for the Week 7 divisional matchup. In his five-plus seasons, he's racked up his most receiving yards versus the Bears, reeling off his 522 yards at 15.4 YPC to go with six touchdowns in nine games.
Cobb (back) returned to practice Tuesday as a limited participant.
Cobb's sore back has resulted in missed practice time the past two weeks, but with no suggestion the injury is serious, he should be available Thursday against the Bears. Davante Adams (concussion) and Eddie Lacy (ankle) are looking much shakier, potentially leaving the Green Bay offense far below full strength.
Cobb may still be dealing with the after-effects of a hard hit near the end of the Packers' Week 5 win against the Giants, which limited him in back-to-back sessions before a full practice Friday. He proceeded to reach the end zone for the first time this season during Sunday's defeat at the hands of the Cowboys, but his practice reps will again be capped with a short turnaround before Thursday's outing versus the Bears.
Cobb caught seven of 11 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Cowboys.
Cobb managed a long gain of 17 yards and averaged just 7.6 yards per catch, but he was able to find the end zone for the first time this season. He has seen noticeable improvements in usage since the team's bye week, as he has been targeted 22 times in two games since, compared to 18 times in three games prior. He did not factor into the running game, although he was expected to be Eddie Lacy's backup on the day, but the increased attention he is garnering from Aaron Rodgers has his fantasy stock on the rise heading into next week's matchup with the Bears.
