                 === Cobb, Nelson miss practice for Packers ===
 
 Green  Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Wide receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson
 did  not participate in Wednesday's practice as the Green Bay Packers prepared
 for  this weekend's  NFC Divisional  Playoff  game against  the San  Francisco
 49ers.
 
 Packers  head coach Mike McCarthy said that Cobb, Green Bay's leading receiver
 during  the regular  season, remained at home Wednesday because of illness and
 not injury. The second-year standout had missed the team's Week 17 finale with
 an  ankle/knee  issue, but returned to  action for the Packers' 24-10 win over
 rival Minnesota in last Saturday's Wild Card round.
 
 Nelson's  status is less certain after he hurt his ankle during last weekend's
 victory, though McCarthy was hopeful he would be able to practice on Thursday.
 
 Rookie  safety Jerron  McMillian also was not  on the field Wednesday due to a
 personal matter, but is expected to rejoin the team on Thursday.
 
 Outside  linebackers  Clay Matthews  (knee) and  Dezman Moses (hamstring) were
 listed  as  limited in  Wednesday's session, while  defensive end Jerel Worthy
 will  miss Saturday's  matchup with a knee injury he sustained in the regular-
 season finale.
 
 Running  back James Starks, out since early December due to a knee sprain, was
 a full participant.
