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.
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.

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.
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.”
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.

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 WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Cobb was limited all last week before sitting out. If he plays, he’s a strong play in what should be a high scoring game against the Colts.

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.

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.
