Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb said he almost played in this past week’s game against the Vikings and that he’ll be ready for Saturday night’s Wild Card show down.
“It was close,” Cobb said after the Packers’ 37-34 loss at the Metrodome. “It was 50-50.”
Cobb said the decision was made between him and the medical staff and that he thought it was the right one.
“I wanted to be out there, especially a game like this,” Cobb said. “You want to play, but we were just being smart about it. It was a mutual decision.”
Asked whether he was confident he would play against the Vikings in the playoff opener next week, Cobb said, “100%.”
Getting Cobb back this week will be a big lift to the Packers as they head into the playoffs.
