The Packers probably took the biggest injury hit around the league this summer when they lost Jordy Nelson for the season with an ACL injury. But the man who’s expected to replace the majority of Nelson’s production, Randall Cobb, is battling health problems as well.
Cobb injured his shoulder during the Packers’ second preseason game, and just returned to practice Wednesday. There’s no definitive word on whether Cobb will suit up to take on the Bears in Week 1, but the fact that he’s practicing is a good sign.
If Cobb can’t go Sunday, second-year wideout Davante Adams would become the new number one receiver in his absence.

Bouye said. “And at the end of the day it all comes down to winning and changing the game on defense and getting the ball in our offense’s hands.”
O’Brien knows how Brady prepares for games, and he is aware the four-time Super Bowl champion will have a good idea of what the Texans will present defensively.
“We’re not going to show him anything that he hasn’t already seen,” O’Brien said. “He’s been doing it for years, 17 years or whatever it is. I mean, that’s part of what makes him who he is. He’s seen it all. He’s very well-prepared. He’s played against a lot of these players. He’s played against this scheme.

“We just need to kind of do what we do and execute and play every play. Be very focused on every single play, I think that’s big for us.”
