Packers WRs Nelson, Cobb probable for Saturday
Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Green Bay Packers wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb were listed as probable on the team's final injury report as they prepare for Saturday's NFC Wild Card playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Nelson had missed three straight games with a lingering hamstring injury before returning for Green Bay's season-finale against the Vikings, where he caught three passes for 73 yards and a touchdown in a 37-34 setback.
Despite being limited during Wednesday's practice with a knee injury he sustained against the Vikings, the 27-year-old Kansas State product practiced fully on both Thursday and Friday and is expected to play on Saturday.
Cobb, who leads to team with 80 catches for 954 yards, sat out Sunday's loss and was limited during Wednesday's practice with knee and ankle injuries, but the second-year wideout returned as a full participant over the past two days and was deemed probable for Saturday.
Defensive back Charles Woodson, who missed the last nine games with a broken collarbone, was medically cleared to play earlier in the week and was listed as probable after putting in a full week of practice.
Tight end Jermichael Finley (quadricep), running back Alex Green (knee), and cornerbacks Davon House (hip) and Tramon Williams (illness) were all listed as probable and are expected to play against the Vikings.
Running back James Starks (knee) was a limited participant all week and was listed as questionable, while wide receiver Jarrett Boykin (ankle) missed practice all week and will sit out Saturday's tilt.
Rookie defensive end Jerel Worthy has already been ruled out for the duration of the playoffs after sustaining a left knee injury during Sunday's setback.
