Cobb labored through the end of practice on Tuesday.  He and the Green Bay Packers will have to decide if Cobb should cut back on the number of times he practices during the week.

Cobb injured his biceps at the Family Night scrimmage more than a week ago and didn’t return to practice until this week.  Head coach Mike McCarthy said it’s something Cobb will likely have to battle with for awhile, but there’s no risk of further injury.

Cobb may need extended time off.  There’s a decent chance that he’ll sit out Saturday night’s game against the Rams in St. Louis.
