The Green Bay Packers have signed linebacker Carl Bradford from their practice squad and released tight end Justin Perillo, a move that signals the likely return of starting tight end Jared Cook.

The 6-foot-4 Cook has been out since Week 3 with an ankle injury.

Cook could give quarterback Aaron Rodgers a big target sorely needed over the middle help open up the field for receivers Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. Without Perillo, Richard Rodgers is the only other tight end on the Packers' active roster.

Fantasy Impact:

Cook (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 11. Cook may be able to return this week as the story indicated. Richard Rodgers has not played well in his absence, so Cook will be given every opportunity to win the job outright.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) took limited practice reps all week. Cobb sat out the first half and then (curiously) came in at halftime to catch two passes for 14 yards and a touchdown. According to Mike McCarthy, Cobb is going to be a “full-time player” in Week 10. He was removed from the injury report, so he’s good to go.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) used in limited role

ESPN - [Full Article]

A week after sitting out because a hamstring injury, Randall Cobb caught two passes for 14 yards -- including the 3-yard touchdown that pulled the Packers within five points of the Colts with 3:29 to play after trailing by 18 -- in an extremely limited role. Afterward, there appeared to be some confusion about what should have been expected from Cobb in his return.

“Didn’t quite understand what Cobb’s status was,” Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said.

Even Cobb was unsure why he didn’t play a single snap in the first half.

“I was waiting for my number to be called,” he said. “Obviously, there was some apprehension with my injury, and we didn’t know for sure if I was going to be able to get out there. But once I was cleared, I didn’t quite know exactly what to expect, so I just had to be prepared for my number.”

Fantasy Impact:

HC Mike McCarthy said he was surprised Cobb was able to suit up but he took a conservative approach with him. As a result, it wasn't a great fantasy day for owners but the TD was a nice bonus. Now the hope is Cobb will be closer to full strength, and a more involved role, for their next game.

Fantasy Impact:

Cobb will play in Week 9 despite a hamstring issue. He likely isn't at 100-percent so comes with some risks. Montgomery will fully expected to play after missing last week.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 9. Cobb is a game-time decision and did not sound confident that he was going to play this week. Unfortunately, the Packers play late again this week, so owners will have to account for that uncertainty on Sunday morning. If he’s active, he’s a strong play in what should be a high scoring game against the Colts.

Packers WRs Ty Montgomery, Randall Cobb OUT for Week 8

Sunday, October 30, 2016, 2:56pm

Jason Wahlers - [Full Article]

The illness that Ty Montgomery struggled with this week will keep him out of the game against the Falcons. Randall Cobb is also out, as was reported early Sunday morning.

Fantasy Impact:

The Montgomery news was a surprise given how shorthanded the team is at receiver and running back. Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson are strong starts, while Jeff Janis should see 70% or more the snaps in three-receiver sets, unless the Packers decide to expand Trevor Davis's role. Knile Davis and/or Don Jackson should pick up Montgomery and Cobb's carries.

Friday, October 28, 2016, 6:30pm

Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 8. Cobb should be fine to face the Falcons in Week 8, though he may not be his usual self. His offensive role has been expanded since the team’s Week 4 bye, but he needs to be healthy to take advantage.
