Yet there he was on the field through the end of Tuesday’s practice. He even had three passes thrown his way during the final period, a no-huddle drill, and he hauled in two of them. For two straight days, Cobb has practiced with a wrap on the biceps injury he sustained last week. Considering how often coach Mike McCarthy talks about being smart with injured players, it was somewhat surprising to see Cobb on the field when he was in such obvious pain. Cobb “Trying to be smart and be tough at the same time is difficult for me,” Cobb said after practice. “But I understand that I have limitations, and I have to be smart about it. But it’s hard and difficult at times.” When asked whether he was being smart by practicing on Tuesday, Cobb simply said: “No.” “It’s something that we understand what the injury is, and we wouldn’t put him out there if we thought he was in jeopardy of moving forward and getting healthy,” McCarthy said.
Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb almost back for Packers

Randall Cobb back at practice despite injury; fantasy value mixed
Odds and ends: B.J. Coleman and Graham Harrell , who have been getting equal practice time as they battle for the backup quarterback job, had vastly different days.

Meanwhile, Harrell made perhaps his best throw of camp — hitting James Jones deep on a play-action, roll-out for a 75-yard touchdown. … Outside linebacker Nick Perry showed how much he has improved in coverage. He blew up a screen pass by batting it down. … Lang and Josh Sitton , the teams starting guards, have combined to go 9-1 in the one-on-one drills.
