Packers Calendar: Evaluation Day for Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb

Packers Calendar: Evaluation Day for Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb

Based upon what's transpired in the past few weeks, there's no guarantees, but the Green Bay Packers appear close to getting Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb back in action.

Close is a relative term, and whether that means days or weeks is still to be determined.

Both Rodgers and Cobb are scheduled to be evaluated before the Packers hit the practice field on Wednesday, which will perhaps determine the extent to which they participate.

With a spot in the playoffs at stake, the Packers would certainly benefit from the return of two of the best players on their roster as they start preparations for the Pittsburgh Steelers this upcoming Sunday in their regular season home finale.

Head coach Mike McCarthy didn't offer much, but last he spoke on Monday, there's a lot riding on the quarterback's upcoming medical check-up.

"Aaron's situation will be evaluated Wednesday morning, and then we'll have a plan for him come Wednesday," said McCarthy.

Cobb looks to be in much the same boat.

"Randall Cobb's workout (Monday) I was told was very good," said McCarthy. "He's moving. Everything looks good. We'll see how he is (Tuesday), and then Wednesday's really kind of the day we set the plan for all the players."

It will also be worth watching how defensive lineman Johnny Jolly and tight end Brandon Bostick look after both players were injured in this past weekend's game against the Dallas Cowboys, as well as getting a status update on defensive lineman C.J. Wilson, who's missed the past several weeks.

McCarthy will have an update at his Wednesday press conference streamed live on the team's official website at 1:00 p.m. CT.

In the evening, linebacker A.J. Hawk will once again step in for an injured Jermichael Finley as guest host on the weekly J-Mike and M.D. Show from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. CT on WDUZ 107.5 FM and 1400 AM in Green Bay, according to the station's Facebook page.

The show originates from Thornberry Creek golf course in Oneida, Wis. in front of an audience and will be streamed live on TheFan1075.com.

How many padded practices remaining this season?

If Cobb was able to run and cut at full speed on Monday (as has been reported) I don't see why he wouldn't be ready to go this week.

It's crazy how many weapons we have on the field without even counting Cobb. Wow our offense is dangerous at full strength!

What are those weapons? Jones? He has lost two steps and is not a break away threat. Nelson, great if you can get the ball to him but our O line can't protect long enough to get him the ball. Cobb, he is done, put a fork in him. Our back up tight ends are the worst in football. Taylor couldn't catch a cold being locked in a cold locker. Lacy is a bull rusher but he is a three yards and a cloud of dust rusher.
Bottom line this team has no greated weapons that any other team

I am going to continue with the thinking that Rodgers and Cobb won't be playing. I will continue to think that until I hear they are playing...

Considering the fact that the team has a decision to make on James Jones, it would be good to have Cobb back for a couple of games (and maybe 3-4 more) so that they can see if he's fully recovered for next year.
