Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle) not ready to return

ESPN - [Full Article]

One of theories about what’s wrong with the Green Bay Packers offense is the lack of a big-play tight end down the middle of the field.

That was supposed to be what free-agent Jared Cook added.

But Cook hasn’t played since Week 3, when he badly sprained his right ankle against the Lions. Although it’s not a season-ending injury, Cook still hasn’t been cleared to practice.

Exactly a month from the injury, Cook said he’s still not ready to return.

Fantasy Impact: 

In Cook’s absence, coach Mike McCarthy turned back to Richard Rodgers, who caught 58 passes last season. In six games this year, Rodgers has nine catches for 84 yards and a touchdown. But in the three games that Cook has missed, Rodgers has just four catches for 28 yards and no touchdowns.
