While Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson told reporters after Thursday’s practice that he expects to play Saturday night against the Minnesota Vikings, fellow wide out Randall Cobb was a full participant during the session and also appears likely to suit up for the team’s postseason opener, reports Tom Silverstein of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Wide receiver Jordy Nelson (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday and said in the locker room afterward that he expects to play against the Minnesota Vikings Saturday night.
Fellow WR Randall Cobb (ankle) was also a full participant, which means the Packers will have their top four receivers healthy and on the field come game time.
Nelson has been hampered by leg injuries throughout the year which have caused him to miss several games this season. However, he told reporters yesterday that he feels good, adding that he has no doubts that he’ll be able to play against the Vikings.
Assuming Nelson and Cobb play, Silverstein notes that Saturday will be the first time since the season opener that the Packers will have Nelson, Cobb, Greg Jennings and James Jones completely healthy.
